That's a great looking watch mate! How'd you feel about it now that you've got it in hand? I remember when I got mine, my first though was, 'Oh it IS a touch small...oh well, no worries!" ๐Ÿ˜‚

And how's the crown? Mine sticks just slightly when bringing out into the first position.

Do you know anything about the movement used? I based the age estimate on the movement, as the calibre used in mine was made in-house by Roamer for a short period of time between 1950(ish) to approx. 1960(ish).

That's literally it for me! A way to bisy myself between watch purchases! Make it a game, keep it interesting, keeping it fun!
