Roamer Wrist Watch

New postby midwest_clock_guy » Mon Dec 24, 2012 7:50 pm

Picked this up at an estate sale, the case has been well used but wonder if its worth the expense of restoring this watch? What do you members think?

Thanks

This Roamer wrist watch runs good and keeps excellent time.....I was just wondering if it is possible to refinish the case...or should I just look for a new case...or just leave it alone and enjoy it as is? Thanks

Wayne i dont know enough about Roamer watches, the watch could be improved, but wonder if that would be more than its worth. I have a brass cased watch which plating is worn through, i want to get it nickel plated, this might be a good option for your watch, nickel is a cheaper plate to do.

I don't think there would be any money to be made by restoring the watch... There's nothing wrong with restoring a watch you like, though.
If you do some searches on eBay for similar Roamer watches, you could get a pretty good idea of what they are worth.
