    With help, ive found the Rotary ladies gold watch ive been searching with the Reference number visible on the back of the bezel which is LB0354 - UC 321. My searches hadn't returned anything from Rotary, any of their ranges and a few people commented that all the other reference numbers used for Rotary identification were all a digit shorter than on my watch. This suggested to me, as well as a few others the watch was possibly a fake as the serial identification number didn't exist. I opened the back to just to look and see what a fake Rotary would look like on the inside for my own future reference, I couldn't believe how good of a counterfeit it was!..
    Then a lady commented on my watch and clarified the reason it couldn't be found was it was a limited edition of a rotary watch which was called "Jewels of time" she clarified the number being s. and said the reason she knew is because she had purchased one herself 26 years ago and showed me her paperwork and imagine same as mine.. She paid £186 for it 26 years ago.. Fully working in lovely condition, and I'm looking forward to finding out more about it..

    My suggestion is now that you have the basic info on the watch and its age start by doing google searches for ads and see what pops up.

    Bought this watch as part of a watch whim in a joblot. It’s fully working and at first was identified as a fake as the case number LB0354 didn’t turn out any results in search..until a lady verified the watch stating she was sure she’s got it herself , and Had it bought it 25years ago As a present...Later her daughter commented saying the reason the watch probably wouldn’t show results was due to the age but also because it belonged to a special edition of watches called “ Jewels in time” made by rotary. She showed me the paperwork the watch came with when she bought it her mum over 25 years ago, and added she pad £185 then for the watch..the Ref number Stated on her paperwork for the watch is LB537* as above I’m unsure what the asterisk stands for due to my lack of information found around the watch in my own research.
    Please help. Any advice where to approach for further help, be appreciated tooQ
    Thankyou

    Firstly and most important is more pictures are needed. Case back, inside case back, movement pics are absolutely necessary.

Making it 45years old..still can’t find it although all the info is their ..

    Something seems amiss. I doubt that ISA were making this movement in 1975. I believe they were established in 1984.
    What is stamped in the back?
    They aren't diamonds.
