    Roamer Searock Real or Franken?

    Picked up a "Roamer Searock" that shows 25 jewels on the dial and on the back shows 201 633/7. It works well and frankly I really like it, but do not know if it is authentic. Any Roamer experts willing to opine? Year? Movement? Original sale price?

    Doesn't 2892 has 21 jewels? I believe it's a 2824. Beautiful watch, I'm a big fan of Roamers.

    The ETA 2892 went through a phase in the late eighties and early nineties when most specimens ahd 21 jewels. Nowadays, they are usually up to 25.
