In a day in which many old swiss watch companies have 'lost' or simply don't care about their history other than what they can milk from the brand for the new owners, I just want to say thanks to the Roamer Watch Company.
Considering the company was a casualty of the quartz crisis, and essentially dormant (under swatch) from '83 until '93 - it still retains its company archive. Not only that, but they took the time to dig through their archive to supply me with photos and bios of 3 significant people in the companies history.
I've saved the best to last. In order to answer a technical historical question of mine, they (in their words) We get in touch with our former, retired patron regarding your last question. Which of course was answered to my complete satisfaction.
In my opinion, this is going the extra mile, and is well beyond my expectations. So this is a shout out, to thank them, what great customer service! Particular thanks to David for doing all this.
