This rare watch was thought to exist only as a prototype, and is the design that was used to launch the entire modern Roamer Luxury Competence line. The modern design was based on some drawings and an empty case found in the Roamer archive. Currently the only known original in captivity.
With its beautiful machined dial and see through index ring this is a small but stunning watch. The final two images show the modern Competence watch based on this design.
