My Federal watch has a Roamer movement. I am curious about any information about this company. D7543350-0FCF-4A2F-AC2D-50C55E798E90.jpeg

The Roamer Watch Co. / Meyer & Stüdeli in Solothurn, Switzerland was the maker of numerous pocket watch and wrist watch calibers, and they produced the entire watches including cases and dials etc.
The movement has the MST trademark stamped under the balance, most likely with the caliber number, but I can't see the details on the photo.

It appears to be a MST 367:

Looks super similar, my one seems older though and even the engraving looks more old school, also missing ROAMER logo on body but does have it on the barrel.... (ROAMER * SPECIAL)
I see many parts available for this, so it has the potential of being fixable.

Also found this one with the Roamer logo on the train bridge.

The 367 is an 8.75 ligne. I believe that bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: MST 416 is the one.
roughbarked: You are right, the MST 367 is too small, also the proportions don't fit well. The MST 416 is a much better match. I was somewhat distracted by the similar shape of the balance cock, but this might rather be a detail which was modified at some point during production in several calibers.

So I dug up another Roamer this morning... A Rockshell Mark VII, and it runs!

I like it so much I'm wearing it.

Face is supposed to be white with blue indices and hands.... Hope it cleans up nicely. It is the first white and blue one I see in a gold case.

Can look realy nice
