Roamer is a Swiss watch manufacturer.
Roamer was founded in Solothurn, Switzerland, in 1888 by Fritz Meyer. At first, Meyer and employees concentrated on manufacturing cylinder escapements, in 1904 Meyer began assembling watches. In 1905 Meyer joined forces with fellow watchmaker Johann Studeli to form the company Meyer and Studeli.
By 1923, production grew to one million units. The top quality Jeweled lever escapement watches were sold under the brand 'Roamer', cylinder and later pin-lever watches were sold under the brands Medana and Meda. In 1932 the company started its own dial production line. In 1945, a representative office opened in New York City and in 1952 Meyer and Studeli officially changed its name to Roamer Watch Co. SA. In 1955, Roamer patented the Anfibio watertight watch case, which proved to be a commercial success. The company launched its first quartz movement in 1972.
In 2003, Roamer returned to manufacturing of mechanical watches. Currently, it remains an independent watchmaking company, selling its products to over 70 countries. Roamer Watch Co. is a member of Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry FH. (Wikipedia)
