WNS-MCTY-3016 - Roamer - Starburst Exploding Dial - 17J - Dial Close Up View

Case: The round shaped silver toned metal case measures 31 mm across (33 mm including the crown) and 40 mm (lug to lug.)  It is 9 mm thick.  The dome shaped crown is located at the 3 o'clock position and marked "RW".  The back of the screw down case is marked Stainless Steel Back, Antimagnetic, Waterproof, Roamer, Swiss Made, Brevete, 305 467 305 776 and 307 382 308 491.

Dial: The most predominant feature of this watch is the gorgeous exploding starburst design!  It starts in the center and "explodes" to the edge of the dial.  It really plays tricks on your eyes when viewed from different angles or viewed at different levels of light.  It has a textured (thin lines) design in the sections that are in between the hour markers, and a smooth surface in the sections that run through the hour markers.  There is also a gold colored ring that runs around the entire outer rim of the dial.

It also has a seconds/minutes scale that runs between the hour markers. The hour makers at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions are a very moddish style form of Arabic numerals.  The other hour markers are in the form of a small triangle and located at the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 o'clock positions.

The straight dauphine-style hour and minutes hands are gold in color with a sharp central angle.  And the dauphine-style sweep seconds hand is gold in color and has a very neat and eye catching red arrow tip on it. 

The crystal has a slight curvature on the surface and angular sides and is raised 3MM above the case at its center. 

It is marked Roamer, 17 Jewels below the 12 o'clock position, and  Super Shock above the 6 o'clock position, and Swiss Made below the 6 o'clock positionHigh Quality Roamer Swiss Made 17 Jewels Mechanical Wind.17 Jewel Mechanical Wind Enicar Movement.

Strap: Brand new 16 mm snake skin front and genuine leather padded and sewn which is medium brown in color.  Made by IW with a gold tone buckle.  The total length is 9".

Comments: Here is a unique fifties wristwatch featuring a super exploding starburst dial with mod-style Arabic numerals and a high quality Swiss mechanical wind movement. 

This watch is in excellent cosmetic and running condition, and is an absolutely beautiful timepiece. It keeps accurate time.
