A fine and rare, in this condition, vintage gents `Roamer`
stainless steel automatic (self wind) wrist watch.
Cased in a heavy solid stainless steel `Oyster` `Brevete` water proof case this
watch is a stunning example of Swiss watchmaking.
Dating from late 50s to early 60s watch has only very light marks from probable little use.
The dial is champagne in colour with raised gilt Arabic numerals & batons and matching gilt `sword` hands.
Dial is marked `Roamer` `Rotodate` `incabloc 23 jewels` `Swiss Made`. Dial is near perfect.
There is an automatic date change at the three position. Stainless steel waterproof winding crown is embossed `RW`
The original UB glass is also near perfect, has a cyclops eye to the date, & the `Roamer` Logo is embossed
to the centre of the glass on the inside. Glass is also armoured having a matching gilt stretching ring.
The back is marked `ROAMER ROTODATE` `Brevete` `Swiss Made``stainless steel` `Waterproof` and
has the case numbers `305467 305776 307382 308491` also the Swiss Cross.
The movement is a high precision 23 jewelled Swiss lever automatic wind, two colour, mint condition.
Movement is marked `Roamer` ``Automatic 23 jewels Swiss Made`.
Watch is fitted with a padded black, genuine leather, heavy stitched anti-allergic strap with stainless steel buckle.
Named `Darlena` the strap I`m sure has not been worn but has been stored buckled.
Watch has been fully serviced, hermetically sealed and is an excellent timekeeper.
Please Note - although the watch may well be waterproof no guarantee is given as I have no means to test.
Size - 37 mm over winding crown, 43.54 mm over lugs and very slim for an automatic at 10.2 mm thick.
Strap is 18 mm wide & will fit an average sized man.
A very desirable watch today & rare to find in this condition.
