    Help with Roamer Stingray 400ft.

    Hi everyone,
    I picked up this watch this weekend along with some others.
    It's all original, including the corwn, but since it is NOS and never been opened, had a few questions:
    1. Does it have a Valjoux 72?
    2. What was the original bracelet?
    3. Date? Early 70's?

    I know they're not good pics, but wanted some opinions on it. Any info on it would be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Jerry

    I'd also go for early seventies - but then it's more likely to have something in the Valjoux 7730 series.

    On the other hand, Roamer did quite often include the calibre number on the case back - and it says 072.

    We need a movement pic to say for sure... the dials are right is all that can be said right now. Here is the late Chuck Maddox's discussion of the Valjoux 72.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I agree very early 70s as the waterproof designation was changed to water resistant in 1971.
