In an effort to bring more content to TickTalk I am starting a new alternative review style, quick reviews. These will not supplant the existing more in-depth versions but will offer me a chance to talk about some of my purchases that I would not have originally intended to review, either due to time or other commitments. I will try to keep them to about 600 words, and they are likely to contain more pictures than the normal reviews. So without further ado, the Rotary Ocean Avenger.

Announced at Basel World this year, the Tradition family of watches is the Rotary Les Originales new signature collection. Taking design clues from their rich history and looking back at pieces from their heritage, the Les Originales Tradition range is an attempt to marry that history with a modern contemporary feel.
Presented in stainless steel, gold and rose gold, each is powered by an automatic Sellita movement, with double domed sapphire glass, a display case back and a sleek hidden crown. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to test drive the stainless steel variation (GS90161/32) to see if what Rotary had been aiming for had been achieved.
