In 1888, in Soleure France Fritz Meyer with a team of six employees, created the Meyer company making cylinder escapements. By 1897 the Meyer company was assembling complete watches and developed their first calibre, naming it "38" in honour of Meyer's 38th birthday.

By 1905 Meyer teamed up with watchmaker Johann Studeli and growing to 300 employees 3 years later.

In 1917 "MST" purchased another watch company, "LTG" L. Tieche-Gammeter.

The two companies collaborated and Roamer would become the registered trade-marker brand name. Between the 20's to 50's the company shift into an almost self-sufficient manufacture making the parts inhouse.

By 2010, Roamer was asserting itself as one of the most excellent Swiss watch brands in the medium price range.
