One of the last of the MST powered Roamers, this Premier model has a good quality gold case and looks to have been hardly ever worn.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the long service inscription on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being presented in 1973. However, the case was assayed in London in 1972. Either year could be considered for a birth year watch.
This gold watch is powered by the in house MST430 manual wind movement, and was presented for 25 years long service. Like many long service watches, this appears to have been saved for best, such is the great condition of the David Shackman and Son case – they made cases for Longines, Jaeger LeCoutre and most famously Rolex. The silver radially spun dial is very good, with the red Premier writing a nice styling touch. The leather strap may be original – it looks of the right period and has retained the gold plated Roamer buckle. The movement calendar can be quick set by the 12-9-12 method (sometimes known as 24-21-24.)
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
