    Vintage Roamer

    I decided to buy a Roamer watch and found a very nice Roamer popular with a 17 jewel movement, gold plated case, stainless a steel back and a red arrow on the tip of the seconds hand. " I think it's from the early 1950's " I will post pics on this thread when I receive it.

    That looks to be in fine condition.

    Awesome. Gilouche dial, and I have always been a big fan of those numerals.

    Wonderful condition - it looks perfect, although it needs a better colour match on the crown.

    I would have been all over that and would have been happy to have it in my collection any day of the week.

    Great condition the roamer movements always seem to be in great condition must how they are made, or owners look after them.
