I found another Roamer, and this one is an abomination of a transistorized flywheel with discrete electronic components. Certainly the strangest one I saw yet.
1970 - 1973 Goldplated Roamer Searock Electronic MST 916 , MOD 916.2210.333
Below is a summary of the data I found online:
From the very early 1970s, Roamer first started advertising the Dynotron powered watches, including the 606 that appeared in catalogs between 1970 and 1973.
This watch features a Roamer MST 916 (which is really a ETA-ESA 9154 Dynotron), 20-micron gold plated,
Roamer MST 916 (a ETA-ESA 9154 Dynotron) transistorised electric balance wheel. This watch along with the gold version is the most elusive of the electronic Roamers to find. Unlike the others of the series like the 606 and Searocks, they also do not appear in any catalogues.
