    RW RAMBA, submarine

    Hi, has anyone any information on this watch ?, so far i have found no reference to it on the internet, the face has "RW RAMBA" with "submarine" quoted below, it also has "waterresistant" and "antimagnetic" near the six on the dial and at the bottom is the "Swiss movt" quote. Im quite sure the case and the back are not original to the movement as most experts will more than likely confirm,

    Any information/comments would be appreciated,

    Typical design of the 60ties, I bet the movement is a 15 or 17 jewels handwound swiss movement. Most of those watches had a diver engraved on the back, very famous those days but not really rare. Cordella, Lika, Fero came to my mind at once.

    Ah thank you for your reply, have you any idea what the RW and RAMBA stand for, and yes there is a diver on the back but i didnt think the case and back were origional as the movement doesnt fit in the case there is a lot of movement in there,

    Roamer Watches? Raymond Weil? Probably neither - and we'll never know.

    Most of these tiny dive watches of those times did not need any movement spacers, the movement is directly fitted into the case by screws. Looks odd but should be correct.
    Have got no time to open mine right now, will try this weekend.

    No clue re RW Ramba.
