    Raindrops on your watch (if I am not mistaken) - one of the nicest things in Australia these days, but then again, occasionally too much of the badly needed water. My relatives there have been far away from the fires, but still scared.

    A bit of early `70`s funky chunkiness today.
    Roamer Electronic 606 (606 being the case style).
    i love the little whizzing electrons around the logo on these.
    Movement is the futuristic (at the time ) ESA 9154 battery /transistor powered balance wheel combo.
    The movement was an upgrade of the first transistor/balance wheel movement -the ESA 9150 .
    Roamer used both versions- but most examples I`ve seen on the web are the later 9154`s (28,800 BPH ) with the 606 dial marking.

    when the far cheaper to produce mass quartz moments began to come to market the interesting electronic balance models (made by many different companies) days were numbered.

    After a desultory oiling, and a new crystal, this 1920s Olympic is gracing the inside of my wrist.

    1973 Caravelle auto today, with a 1972 17j 11OTAC, aka the Citizen 5620, and not shown in any of the usual archives.

    34mm, reliably accurate and cheap enough for GIs to have bought them at their PX store, where I understand this one first saw the light of day.

    Regards.

    Most Australians live in the cities and are far away from any danger. Sydney and Melbourne have both been blanketed in smoke from the bush fires. Staining the sky to an all day sunset and leaving those with lung conditions in peril. Below you can see the ferocity and speed in 3 minutes. The Dunmore Rural Fire Service is called to secure a property - the wind changes and at 1.40 they come under severe ember attack. The truck that houses the dashcam and crew protects itself with via a sprinkler system. Everyone survived.

    Timestar, Franco/Indian collaboration. Movement is either a Lorsa or a Fontemelion /Cant remember. But a sturdy decent movement. The rest of the watch is indian made. i bought it a few years ago as an NOS.Pretty decent timekeeper but not super. I like the dial design, probably most of the reason I bought it.
