Brand History

FRITZ MEYER (1859-1926)

The story of ROAMER, the brand of high-quality Swiss watches, begins with the ideal of its pioneering founder, Fritz Meyer (1859-1926), to create a robust yet elegant watch, a precious accessory which everyone would love to own. With this goal, he sets up his own business in Solothurn, Switzerland – a workshop with six employees producing cylinder escapements for the watch industry.

SOLOTHURN ROAMER OFFICE 1895

Within only 7 years, the company grows to 60 employees and produces complete watches. In the same year the company develops its first own calibre and names it number 38 to commemorate the 38th birthday of the company’s founder.

THE BIG CHANGE 1905

The «MST» movements developed and constructed by Meyer and Stüdeli quickly acquire an excellent reputation for their high precision and reliability in and beyond Switzerland. The manufacture continues to grow and a spacious new factory to accommodate 300 workers opens its doors. ROAMER, the name of the most successful line, is registered as a trademark in Switzerland.

SOLEURE LAUNCH IN 1907

This year heralds one of the most significant milestones for the fledgling company: Fritz Meyer enters into a partnership with Johann Stüdeli, who is trained and experienced in the art and tradition of the watchmaker’s craft. This is the start of the legendary «MST» watch.

FURTHER GROWTH 1923

The watch production soars to one million units a year and the company begins to produce its own cases to control the overall quality and to reduce its dependency on external suppliers.

Swiss Producton

In 1940, The company now employs more than 1,200 people and starts to produce its own dials. An astute case providing excellent dust and water-resistance and simplifying servicing procedures is designed, developed and patented.

Birth of The Roamer Watch Brand

In 1952, the company name is changed to that of its most successful brand, becoming ROAMER Watch Co. SA, under which the famous timepieces have been sold ever since.

Love the watch!

I read a lot about FargoTime because they had such could deals that I thought they’re too good to be true. I felt comfortable based on the reviews and crossed my fingers when I made my order. My item was on backorder, and I became worried when I tried to reach their customer service without an answer. However, I managed to reach someone when I called their store. The guy who answered was very nice and told me they actually had the watch in store and would mail it immediately. Less than a week later (we are in the US), we got out Tissot. My husband has two other Tissot watches so we immediately could tell it was original. What a steal of a deal and what great customer service (when they eventually answered). Would highly recommend!

Gotta Love The Swiss!!

I just received my Tissot Supersport Quartz Chronograph from Fargo and it’s awesome. The 45mm face is massive (without looking clunky) and looks great on the wrist. The workmanship is precise which you would expect in a Swiss timepiece. Fargo did a great job in keeping me posted on shipping and the watch arrived two days ahead of schedule. I’ll definitely buy another watch from these folks!! Thanks Fargo!!

TISSOT SEASTAR 1000 Chronograph

Tissot watch quality is exceptional, the value and customer service excellent. I would definitely recommend Fargo Time and will purchase again in the future. Thanks

Definitely recommend!!

I was apprehensive since I had never heard of this company before, so I took a chance. Not only did I get an elegant but simple quartz watch (which I am normally against), but I was kept up to date on the progress, the shipping was fast and my watch arrived in great condition in it's own box. I am very happy with my purchase!💕

Loved the watch and got amazing discount! Very courteous staff and great customer experience. Highly recommended 👍

It Works

Well , I've only had the watch for a few hours. Cannot really give a decent review of the watch yet. Looks great , had to adjust the band. Took out 2 links (not as difficult as I thought) . The shipping was quick and needed a signature, which I like. So , Fargo Time , you have a new customer who will be looking for a deal in the future. Thank you
