    any info on a Roamer Rockshell Mark I?

    Just curious if there's anything special about these. Is MST an in house movement or a relabeled something?

    The one I have is missing half the bracelet, but the movement and dial are very clean, and it's keeping good time.

    Here's a bunch of pics....













    Thoughts?:thanks

    I think that Roamer used mostly ETA movements.
    Good watches for the money and rockshell is one of their most popular models.

    Nice watch

    Roamer was a brand used by Meyer & Studeli (MST) movement manufacturer, along with Medana, Vidar, Niobe etc. Thay did use inhouse movements in past, but this one doesn`t look like one. More like one of 25XX ETA`s or similar.
    Late 60`s early 70`s.
