    A little help with this vintage Roamer?

    Hi, Could anybody tell me anything about this Roamer? Approximately what year would it have been made? All I know is the Incabloc identifies it as made for the European or Asian market. Thanks!

    A movement pic would help!

    Many watches had Incabloc on their dial... I suspect it resulted in a license fee reduction or was a requirement for some licenses. AFAIK it had no relationship to the destination market.

    The watch is probably later than 1950 and earlier than 1970. The movement pic will provide more information.

    "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!

    trim would be your man for these late Roamers. I would say mid Sixties to early Seventies, and my feeling with those hands is more into the the early 1970's, but dating on these is not my speciality at all.

    Thanks for the quick responses. Here is a photo of the movement if that will help.

    There is quite a lot of similarity of the dial with a watch of mine

    Peeking out from underneath the balance of yours is what (as on mine) appears to be an ST calibre. Can't recall if it actually shows a calibre number on these or not but I would assume so. I note too that yours is missing a barrel bridge screw - I'm assuming a watchmaker lost this at some point, which doesn't bode well for the quality of any work undertaken.

    Appears to be some variant of the ST 96
