Mustang Roamer Automatic Watch. Says Mustang, Indianoplis, but that’s the brand name. It’s Swiss Made and waterproof.
It has several Swiss Patent numbers written on the back. They are for an improved waterproof case design.
The clasp is broken. And it needs internal repair. I don’t know if it’s battery operated or not.
There seems to be some controversy over who invented the watch. “Peter Henlein (or Henle or Hele) is erroneously credited with inventing the mainspring around 1511” (A non-encyclopediac entry in wikipedia). What I want to know is who invented time?
Roamer watches has a fine collection of vintage mustangs.
Status: Find out if worth repairing. Or more accurately, set a deadline for finding out if worth repairing. Otherwise it could rest in watch purgatory for decades.

I lay awake last night thinking about writing a post for this Alt-title stuff. That’s as far as I got.
