The Roamer caliber MST 424 was produced in the 1950’s in Solothurn, Switzerland.

Roamer Watch Company was founded in 1888 and watches are still being made under the Roamer name. The letters MST come from the initials of the founders. They established the Meyer & Studeli movement factory in 1905 and by 1952 they were making watches fully in-house with the name Roamer. On the caliber above, the MST stamp is partially visible behind the balance wheel.

I really like the stars on the larger gear (not sure what that’s called). It’s a shame that modern movements don’t have nice decorations like that.

That is the ratchet wheel, on top of the main barrel. Nowadays, most movements have to be produced as fast and cheap as possible. No time and budget for fancy decorations 😉
Higher end watches do still have beautifully (in-house) finished movements, though.

Reminds me of the AS 1925/ 1926. Hmmm.
