    Question Is that Very Rare Roamer watch or? - Need info

    Hello.

    Found out about the forum about a week ago. I'm watch lover, but not too crazy :D
    Recently I bought this Roamer watch, the thing is:
    1. I cant find any other model like that in internet.
    2. I have written email to the company. What the answer was is - The watch is authentic, collectable and circa 1920-50.
    3. Mechanism is original MST 413, there is a stamp.
    What I want to know is - more info about the watch and about what it is worth?

    Valuations aren't allowed on the forum but it's value is mostly as a nice piece of history. Have it serviced and enjoy it.

    Try the advanced search feature in eBay and look for SOLD watches. You may not find the exact model, but look for comparable examples.

    Ok, sorry, didn't know I cant evaluate here. Still want to know more about it. I wouldn't wear it - its too small for me.
    I have never found a single picture to even be close to this one. Most common thing I can see are indexes and arrows. Looking like "seaking" or something similar.

    I just PM'd you a link to a watch with the same movement, but entirely different case.

    Here is a good place to start.

    I believe some call these dials TV dials for obvious reasons

    The watch looks genuine butI don`t think it has any real collectability or value.`The "r" logo wasn`t introduced until 1966 so It`s either a 60`s or 1970`s piece.

    Looks much like a Limelight. I’d agree with Demonfinder’s assessment.

    Limelightwas a name given to a range of dress style watches by Roamer-most seemed to have been in gold-plated and occasionally solid gold cases.
    Most that I`ve seen were usually manual wind (no date) rather than automatics s this allowed a slimmer movement for a dressier look .
    I think some quartz versions were produced too.
    Obviously those with solid gold cases increases the value of that particular piece.
    busmatt and Mirius like this.
