Roamer Standard Tonneau, Hinged Lugs, Mst 302, Serviced, Runs Well. Early 1930s:
Early 1930s Roamer Standard tonneau, hinged lugs, MST cal. 302, serviced, runs well. Completely original (possibly not the crown) In the early 1930s Roamer began replacing the round movements fitted into a tonneau-shaped spacer for watches of this design with a true tonneau movement. I have fully stripped down, cleaned and re-lubricated this example of the cal.302 and exchanged some worn keyless parts. It runs well for its age with healthy balance amplitude and modest beat error.For cosmetic condition please examine the photos. Case*: 35 x 22 mm less lugs and crown. Lugs 42 mm tip to tipLugs: 12 mm hinged, fixed barMovement: MST 302 15J manual windStrap: Brown leather open ended* The case is a bit of a puzzle. It appears to be silver but there are no hallmarks. It may be silver or rhodium plated. Terms and conditions. Please read carefully. Allow 24-48 hours pre-dispatch for final testing. I try to make sure that the description of my watches is accurate. But ?stuff? can happen unpredictably with elderly watches, especially whilst travelling through the postal system. In the event that you encounter problems of any kind ? within a reasonable time of receiving the watch ? please let me know. The solution may be simple. As a matter of personal pride I don?t want to make anyone unhappy. But you should be certain that you want the watch before offerding and if necessary ask for additional information. Deciding that you don?t like it after all is not an adequate reason for complaint. For those unfamiliar with vintage mechanical watches, please be aware that they are relatively fragile and seldom capable of high accuracy as with quartz watches (or your mobile.) Some minor faults are common and do not necessarily prevent the watch being usable. Treat them gently. I recommend that when winding manual movements you don?t back wind as it increases wear on the ratchet mechanism of the clutch. Just wind the spring in increments, releasing the crown and gripping it again for the next turn. Also, when setting the time always rotate the hands clockwise apart from the final adjustments of a few minutes. If a return is requested Once we have agreed that this is necessary ? because of a genuine and significant fault - the return costs must be covered by the buyer . Please send the watch back to me by an insured method such as Royal Mail Special Delivery. Until I have signed for receipt of the watch it remains the responsibility of the buyer to make a claim if the watch is lost in transit, irrespective of the carrier or method used. I will refund (in full, including the original outward postage cost) after checking the watch for signs of interference or mechanical damage ? in the event of which I will return the watch to the buyer unless the cost of repair is covered.
