I know I've been on a bit of a Roamer thing lately - but this just came and I am really pleased with it
It is just under 38mm which is by far the biggest old school Roamer I have. The MST 372 shock-resist version was late 40s and super shock version early 50s. This one has no shock-resist at all. It has a clear service date inside of 1949, it has another that looks to be 1937 - but I don't believe it, I don't think they were making the 372 that early (Although I have no good data on this). It has many features of big 1930s watches, the large case smaller movement and the lugs are very art deco (especially from the side). Centre sweep was around. That said, Roamer used this style of numbers in the 40s. Really I am not 100% certain on this, the watch is sending me mixed messages - needs more research.
Of course the crown is well worn and signed, but certainly not original.
The hands and applied indexes are the most wonderful bronzed finish - some of which I would think is tarnish/patination. Really hard to capture in a photo sadly.
