Here is a collectable Roamer Military watch. This was issued to the forces of the Rhodesian Army during the conflict in the 1960's/70's. It has a 17 jewel manual wind Swiss Hack movement that has just been serviced so is running strong and keeping good time. The stainless case is unique as the whole middle part including the crystal comes out from the back to help with water resistance. Back of this one is marked RA2051. I think this was the way to keep track of who they issued these watches to. Original black dial with luminous numbers, white hands with luminous centers . New brown leather band. These were made in 1960's70's. and are not new old stock but serviced and repaired from watches that were actually used in the conflict. A horde of these has been discovered so they are becoming very collectable so here is your opportunity to have a nice one before they are all gone. Size is 35 mm from side to side not counting the winding crown and 40 mm from lug end. Please remember these were used watch and many were worn in combat so they are not perfect condition and may lose a minute or two each day. They are what they are. This one happens to be pretty nice.

Ken Cooper our only west coast sales manager has spent years searching the past of many of our listings and this is what he says is the history of this fine timepiece. Believe it or not it sure is a good story.
Mister William (Bill) Crocker was a simple yet direct person. He love to save money by getting discounts on all he bought. Coupons when shopping, visits to thrift shops, yard sales all were a part of his daily routine. His modest home was bought at auction and his auto, a 1951 Hudson Hornet, was bought from a scrap yard. Yes Mister William Crocker was thrifty, however he did purchase a new Longines Ultra-Chron timepiece that he had serviced every three years. One day while in his local thrift shop he bought an older style one piece "siren" suit that you just stepped into & zipped up. He thought the 10 cents spent on it was worth every penny besides he loved its loud purple color. One bright day he went to work cleaning out the swift moving stream that ran by his home. Carefully placing his beautiful Longines on the mantle he zipped into his siren suit & then his hip waders. As an after thought he secured the waders tightly to his suit using heavy duty cord. He was almost done mucking out the stream when he slipped and fell into the fast moving water. He was amazed that it was deeper than he thought & discovered he couldn't get up and for some reason the tightly secured "siren" suit had inflated with trapped air causing him to float like a blimp down the stream. Miles later he became really concerned as he knew the stream ran into a river & from there into the ocean. He could not get to shore and by now several teenagers had taken shots at the large purple, blimp like object with pellet rifles. Before he knew it he was swept out to sea and soon the passengers on a large cruise ship were looking and pointing at him. He could hear their yells at him, "Look in the sea..it's a blimp..no it's a whale..no it's Mr. Style". Miles later as his "Siren" suit lost air & he slowly sunk to the depths of the briny deep his last thoughts were of his immaculate Longines and who would get it. Now Girard offers this well maintained Longines for sale at a very reasonable price. Ask about his unique lay away plan and be sure and tell your friends where you purchased this great looking timepiece from.

Oh Boy Ken Cooper is back and in true form. For you who have not read Mr. Coopers additions to our listings are in for a treat. Cooper our west coast general sales manager, and by the way our only west coast staff member likes to dip into the hard stuff and even though he says he only smells the corks should know better... Anyway here is what he says about this watch.
Eider Quackly loved the idea of flying. When just a young child he would dream of soaring in the air like an eagle. As he grew and matured the dream became a burning desire, he read, studied, viewed, asked numerous questions about flying. Friends and fliers would chat at length with Eider about all aspects of flying. On his 18th birthday he enrolled in the local flying school to quickly learn to fly and he proved to be their best pupil in ages. The talk about town was that soon Quackly would be flying jet aircrafts and possibly even soaring into space. His proud and very happy parents presented him with a wonderful Seiko World Timer watch to honor and highlight his hard work in learning to fly. Receiving a scholarship to attend an advanced course in flying Mr. Quackly boarded a small jet aircraft to go to the course located a thousand miles away. Arriving at his designated location hours later Eider was deplaning the aircraft when the pilot stopped him and asked him if he would like to do a walk-around inspection of the jet. Nodding yes Eider started the inspection with the pilot who noticed Quackly's great looking Seiko World Timer wristwatch and asked if he could look at the timepiece. Cheerfully Eider removed the watch and continued his inspection of the jet. After completion of his walk-around Eider stepped back to admire the aircraft. Alas, a passing "tugger" filled with luggage struck Mr. Quackly and flattened his body and left him without a breath of life in him. A large plaque was dedicated in the terminal to Mr. Eider Quackly and his love of flying. His grief filled parents kept the Seiko timepiece for sometime than sold it Girard whom they met in an ice cream parlor. Hearing their sad but moving story Girard first burst into tears and then promised them he would find a good "home" for this great timepiece. The parents went home feeling better while Girard stayed until closing time gobbling rich, fat-laden ice cream and sobbing over the fate of the late, great Eider Quackly. When purchasing this masterpiece of timekeeping ask about Girard's unique lay-away plan. Just stay away from the subject of ice cream or you'll learn more about ice cream then any human being needs to know. Girard feels this Seiko is like "brand new" and then breaks into sobs when he thinks how the late Mr. Quackly never got to wear the watch but one brief time.

Ken Cooper our best only west coast sales manager who is well known in tea shops on the west coast. Not only does he read tea leaves but smells and licks wine corks so please take this into consideration when reading what Ken says about my listings and her is one he says he knows about the history of this watch.
During an expensive de'jeuner in a somewhat frilly establishment Stan Spanky III leaned close and spoke sweet nothings to his darling Tina Patts. Stan was in love with Tina and they both had plans for an evening filled with love. But before they departed for their "love nest" Tina presented Mr. Spanky with a gift of a lovely Movado timepiece that left Stan overjoyed and filled with passion for Tina. The next morning filled with lust and deep feelings for Tina, Stan left their love nest with an extra "snap" in his step only to be trampled to death by a large ape that had just escaped from a seedy circus that was leaving town. The ape noticing Stan's condition "snapped" off his arms and legs as a toy to take with him on his new and exciting journey away from the circus. Strangely no one had seen what had happened to the poor, rapidly cooling Stan Spanky III so when police officer Brutus Flattoes arrived upon the scene he had no idea what happened to the body. While making his report Brutus broke wind loudly causing people walking by to think a gun fight was in progress and several concerned citizens called 911 to report a gun fight. Other police arrived along with medics and finally order was restored. Stan's parents were notified he had been mugged and then brutally murdered but a very brave officer had risked life and limb to drive off the feind. The police also announced the fiend would soon be arrested and brought to trial but no arrest was ever made. Tina upon rising later that morning at their love nest noticed that Stan had left his lovely watch on the counter and upon learning of her lovers death kept it for some time until she sold the Movado at a large watch show to a well fed gent that only wanted to be called Girard and not be bothered as he ate his ice cream sandwich. Girard now places this lovely Museum piece for sale at a really great price and hopes that whoever purchases it will use his unique and one of a kind layaway plan that took him days to design and implement. Ever since buying the Movado people have noticed he seems to have an extra "snap" to his step. Tina went on with her life and strangely joined a seedy traveling circus where she sales fat laden ice cream to unknowing rubes. The large ape would later die while attempting to climb a tall building in the city. Buy this watch now and put some extra "snap" in your step while impressing the hell out of everyone.
