Posted this as my watch of the day on sunday
To be honest I dont know much about it and would like to know if anyone out there can fill in the blanks?
I emailed rotary and unfortunately they only confirmed what i already knew.
Ie about 40 yrs old and no parts available
Are there any vintage rotary experts out there?
anyone hoarding some spares such as a geniune bracelet and NOS dial?
I can but hope!
let me know what you think and know
is there a screw missing in the movement?
thanks
Guy

I am no help with your question as to parts availability.
My view is the dial is quite nice, why would you want to replace it?

How many of these will you see on someones wrist?
I would have it serviced (the missing screw can probably be replaced at that time), and enjoy wearing it as is.

Great watch!

the only thing with the dial is the lume has flaked away on the 6 and 12 and I suspect the hands were filled with lume when new
I love the aged look so its fine as it is |I certainly wouldnt get the lume replaced as it would no longer look its age
been wearing it since saturday and so far I havent needed to adjust the time once!
might swap to a nato to see what that looks like
also got vintage rubber divers strap so might give that a go too
fortunately its 20mm between the lugs so plenty of choice

Remember, a (mechanical) watch this age needs to be serviced/lubricated.
If you wear/run a 40+ year old watch that hasn't been recently serviced it's simply a matter of time before something breaks.

As you stated; finding parts for this is next to impossible...
