I like it has a Rolex Explorer/Orient Star look to it.
I've never felt like I truly belonged here and I believe it's time I move on.

Nice. I searched high/low for that black dial version. Once it arrived it was actually green (in the light). Finally gave up.

[quote="biglove"]Nice lume, NC.

Thanks Big. Citizen lume material is pretty darn good, but not as good as that Gorgeous Ball you have there.

Yup


But the bracelet is a pin and collar bitch to size.


Still spot on after 48 hours. First time I ever had that.

Interesting. My question is: Who is selling Roamer these days? Other than sellers on Amazon, I have no idea.

No clue. My Amazon seller was a nightmare to get my money back.
So your dial is actually black?

Yes, it is; depending on the light, it can give glimpses of blue or brown, but it's black.

Found it at a Costco, of all places, and they were giving it away, so I pounced.
