These watches were advertised fitted with either a brown leather strap or a gold plated flat mesh bracelet.
From the very early 1970s, Roamer first started advertising the Dynatron powered watches, inlcuding the 606 (this one is a 612) these watches (including this one) appeared in catalogs between 1970 and 1973.
 
This watch features a Roamer MST 916 (which is really a ETA-ESA 9154 Dynotron), 20 micron gold plated, 20mm strap and with the original Roamer signed crystal. The candy stripe second hand is a lot of fun. This funkmeister arrived in a scratched and tatty state. The horrible aftermarket metal stretch band was discarded, the crystal polished and the case gently cleaned and polished with a non-abrasive silver cloth. A crazy but satisfying watch to wear.
