Rotate a Shaft - 60-120 Seconds Per Revolution - Bidirectional

I need to rotate a shaft very slowly.  Somewhere between 1 and 0.5 RPM.  I need forward and reverse.  I don't need position sensing.  External control will be two buttons -- forward and reverse.

I'm aware I could use a stepper motor and a controller, but that seems overly complex for my application.  I need close to 360 degrees of rotation and I'd *prefer* that it rotate in either direction as long as power is supplied, so a servo motor seems like a poor match.
