I had an old auto Searock from the '70s - unfortunately looked like a poor man's Rolex. Ironically Roamer dates back to the 1880s from memory. Still, I had a lot of issues with the day/date mechanism on mine so I 'retired' it rather than continue to go broke getting it fixed.

I think the Chinese own Roamer now though they are still made in Switzerland.

I've had my eye on this watch for a long time, finally made the leap. Modified with a dark brown IWC deployment band.

Weirdest trait of the watch so far is the "wobbling" feeling it makes. I think this happens when it has been wound too much - the "circuit breaker" on an automatic watch. Any ideas?

Don't worry about it, the movement IWC used is based on the ETA/Valjoux 7750 (with much modification). The rotor is notorious for making the "wobbling" feeling, it's just the nature of the movement, not a design or manufacturing flaw and I would not worry about it.

I find these watches UGLY. They look like "toy" watches. $700? LOL.

Can't help but wonder the reaction if a $10 watch made that "wobbling" feeling.....

Nice to see a fellow SBCM023 owner. Fantastic watch - the only one of my remaining small collection that competes with my Nomos Club for wrist time.

I'm not the biggest fan of B&R, but this I don't hate.
