Let's Review this Roamer Men's Watch
Today we’re taking a look at our Roamer which I’m pretty excited about - The Roamer Primeline Daydate mechanical watch.
History of Roamer Watches
A little bit about the history of Roamer, so they’re a swiss made founded back in 1988 by Fritz Meyer, I think I pronounced that correct.
Fritz’ vision for the brand was to create a robust but elegant looking watch which they definitely achieved. Any by 1923, they were producing one million units each year which is pretty crazy, considering that was in the early 1900’s.
I feel like I’m giving a watch history lesson.
Anyways they also create all their watches in house from the casing to the dial. This would have been to have full control of the entire production and quality of the watch.
In the seventies they presented their first quartz movement which offered a new range of diver’s watches and chronographs. And they’re best known to be the most powerful Swiss watch brands at a medium price range.
First Impressions to the Roamer Watch
First impression of the watch it does look very sophisticated and giving off a mature look.
Taking a look at the specifications, the casing is made out of stainless steel with a diameter of 42mm and a depth of 11mm. A great size for a men’s watch.
If we take a closer look at the dial, we have the day of the week displayed above the Roamer logo, just in case you forget the day. Definitely a feature I need in my life, I’m always loosing track of the days.
Anyways going back to the watch, on the right had side there is also a date display which most traditional watches have.
I’m really liking the blue dial, it really compliments the gold sword-shaped baton’s. I’m not going to lie, I’m not normally that keen on gold watches and jewellery but the blue dial is really standing out to me.
Like I said before all Roamer timepieces are Swiss made and the Primeline day date has an automatic movement which is self winding from the movement of your wrist.
Lastly the dial is covered with a sapphire anti reflective glass.
Moving on from the dial it has a two tone silver and gold bracelet. With a deployment clasp. Pretty big for my wrist but you can have links removed to fit your wrist.
This watch retails at £585 but retails for £525 on Watch Pilot, which is an incredible price for the quality of this watch. And it’s Swiss made which are known to be the best in the world and are a proper watch.
Overall it’s a great looking watch and the only thing I am not keen on is the two tone colour silver and gold. That’s just my personal opinion but there are other colours in the Primeline collection, I would 100% go for. Preferably the all silver with blue dial which I would of loved to feature in this video but couldn’t get my hands on one in time for this video.
With the traditional look this watch has, they are becoming very trendy and more and more of the younger generation are incorporating these with their vintage streetwear outfits.
With this watch having that sophisticated look you can dress this watch up smart or casual.
