MST 175 

Remarks: The 13 ligne MST 175 was the first ROAMER wrist watch calibre , featured a jeweled Swiss lever, three finger train bridge and later a non-magnetic hairspring. The 175 was a cut above the other small contemporary MST production calibres, and many later calibres, 264, 352, and the 364 bear a striking family resemblance - so in many ways the MST 175 is the grandfather of designs in use until the late 1960s. The MST 175 was introduced in 1918 (confirmed by case hallmarks) and it would appear it was superceeded by the 264 in 1928. Few parts are interchangeable with other MST calibres.
Interestingly non-magnetic versions of the MST 175 were produced from 1927, debunking the Tissot claim for the first non-magnetic wrist watch in 1929.
