    Looking for information" my mother was given a roamed watch o

    My mother was given a roamer watch on her engagement in 1953. It is a 17 Jewel square face with serial number 5577. Any information on it would be great.

    Welcome to the forum!
    In order to provide you with information, we would need to see the pictures of the watch- dial, both sides of the case back, and the movement. There's a lot of square watches, that including Roamers, and 17 jewels is simply the number of rubies used in the movement.

    Welcome also from me. To elaborate while you get the pictures up: "Roamer" was the main brand of the movement and watch maker Meyer & Stüdeli of Solothurn, Switzerland. In 1952, they even changed the company name to align it with their most successful brand.
