Hi guys. I just got my first Roamer. I liked the dial so much that I got over the fact that the watch is not in its best condition.
I think is a MST 352 movement from 50's 15 jewel
The movement looks to be in a good shape and is running nice, a bit dusty as far I can see. The dial aged nicely but it sure needs a cleaning.
Unfortunately the crystal has a big crack in the middle so for sure needs a replacement.
As far as I could see, the case was gold plated, which 95% of it is gone, more then this the chrome underneath has visible wear also.
I think the spring bars are fix on the case.
I was thinking the best choice is to search for a new case and use the movement instead of paying for a new crystal replacement and a tube of polywatch to polish the case.
What you guys think? I know is a Roamer expert around. Is the movement ok? or just a random like many others?
Thanks. ( sorry about pic quality.. Samsung seems to have crappy smartphone cameras)
And.. since I opened the thread, I spotted two models that I would like to have. Unfortunately this are the only pictures I got. Anybody can Identify them? 1st is a 6 jewels quartz with alarm - marked inside with PUW681A 683A. second one is a 17 jewels manual. I have no other info about it.
