17 jewel cal. CE3 manual wind movement has been serviced so it is running well and keeping good time. Silver original dial with gold numbers, gold markers, gold hands, day indicator under the "12" and date indicator around the outside. This dial shows some age but it is original. 10 kt. yellow gold plated case with stainless steel back. New black leather band.

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 RA2304. 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 and red sweep second hand . 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 very nice.
The Roamer Military Watch Story
Years ago I purchased a large lot of Roamer watch parts from England where a Roamer Repair Company that repaired the Roamer watches that had problems and these were the watches issued to the army fighting in Rhodesia during the uprising of the 1960's/70's. I would guess that after the fighting ended there was no need for this company to continue so I was able to purchase all their stock. For some years now I have taken the best dials, best cases and movements and had my watchmaker service them. I have run into problems getting more original crystals, hands and some other parts but I still have hundreds of parts to continue making fine mostly original watches that were actually used in the conflict. Each one has the stamp number on the case back like RA for Rhodesia, ZA, SFA for South Africa and so on. This was a way to keep track of who the watch was issued to and some have more than one number so guess they were issued more than once. At one time someone was going to try to determine just how many of these were made and I furnished all the hundreds of numbers I had at that time but I have not seen the exact number as of yet. Anyway this is a piece of history and this watch has the number RA2304 on the back. I sure do not mean to be rude but this is what they are and they are used but still very nice. Maybe the sweep second hand is not original and same with the crystal and band but remember these were made from parts actually used in the war so they are what they are. Here is a chance to own one at a good price that has a story to tell.

Ken Cooper our west coast manager and story teller spends many hours
searching for the history of the timepieces we post for sale. Here is what
he says is the colorful history of this one.
Squire Ken Piercieds (aka The Flying Highlander) loved exceptional items to
go with his colorful kilts and decked out Highlander uniform that Ken wore
on many occasions. Mr. Piercieds was not the sharpest knife in the drawer
nor the brightest apple on the tree but he felt he was of true Highlander
blood (however Ken was not). His mother, Buggina, had just presented him a
very nice Bulova timepiece with a red prancing lion on it and this excited& thrilled Ken because he knew it would go well with his Highlander clothing.
One fine day, the 50th birthday of Feline City was going on, so Ken in a
rush to celebrate the event put on his "Flying Highlander" uniform but
forgot to put on his great looking Bulova and rushed out to perform a very
spirited & lively dance down main street. Wearing his kilts and singing
off-tune he joined with Feline City's marching band as they marched down
main street. Forgetting where he was due to his prancing & leaping Ken
soon entered the traffic stream of autos and was really letting his kilts
fly in the breeze when he was mortally struck by an auto driven by Mr.
Shigeta Aota, a hapless lad who had had already fatally struck several folks
throughout Kitten County with his well worn auto. Ken's lovely girl friend,
Miss Mauy Padwaterington, was given Ken's lovely watch and she trotted off
(she had a somewhat of a horse face) to the nearest traveling watch show and
sold it to Mr. Girard Sensoli for a very fair price. Leaving the show Mauy
thought that Girard was possibly the neatest and well preserved older
gentleman she had ever seen. Girard now offers this well maintained Bulova
timepiece, once owned by "The Flying Highlander", at a great price. Ask
about Girard's unique lay away plan when purchasing this Bulova watch.
