Until about three years ago I had little interest in watches – either modern or vintage.
Then one day I managed to break the mineral glass crystal on my cheap Pulsar and decided to browse the web for an affordable replacement.
At the time I was on a vintage razor collecting spree.
eBay seemed the go-to site for old watches and despite my lack of knowledge at that point I pulled the trigger and won a nice enough Tissot Seastar from the 1960s.
I had heard of the brand and was aware they had a long history. Other than that I hadn`t a clue really.
The watch arrived (from India !) and even my novice eye could detect a less than brilliant re-dial.
The watch had the correct Tissot movement though and worked well enough.
I liked the idea of having a few different watches so I decided I would need to do a bit more research in order to find future buys at a decent price as well as being authentic. Hopefully with a historic pedigree as well.
That is when I discovered the Roamer brand.
