    Enicar Automatic 25 jewel

    I'm after a little info on a watch I was given recently.

    On the face it has Enicar at the top and Automatic 25 Jewel at the bottom


    on the back it reads clockwise from the top
    Enicar
    ultrasonic
    incabloc
    swiss
    automatic
    stainless steel back

    and has the number 125/001 at the bottom


    It needs some repairs as the face has turned slightly so when I find someone to do that I'll get some pics of the internals as well.

    I was told that it was my great grandfathers watch, and so that would place it before 1952 however from what I have read it appears to be 1955 - 1963? Any info that people could provide that may help me confirm this would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers

    I'm not an Enicar expert but this watch looks very strange. I don't see how it can be wound with the dial so far askew. Wrong movement?
    I'd like to see pics of the movement, that's for sure.

    it seems to have automatic wind, hands move fine (the time can be adjusted no problems) and it seems to keep pretty good time despite being at an angle :)

    I'll see what I can do regarding a pic of the internals

    The movement does not appear to be the one for that dial, the crown is now at 4:30 and the date does not appear framed properly by the window.

    (I suppose the dial feet were cut off by persons unknown, for reasons unknown...)

    I don't think I would date this watch any earlier than the late 60s, early 70s.
    IMHO.
    The movement must be for a watch with the stem between 4 and 5.

    My first thoughts were: the winding stem has broken and the movement has rotated inside the case. Then I saw that the crown is still in place. Second reaction: both "feet" on the dial have broken off and the dial is spinning round on the movement. If so, it can be repaired - "Chronos" listed a recent case on a Tissot 1984 chronograph (Valjoux 7750) which cost 170 Euros. Just to give you an idea.....

    Almost certainly. this is not a difficult thing to repair. Today's technology allows for tiny sticky pads to anchor wayward dials and a decent watchmaker will know what to do. It shouldn't cost a lot either and an Enicar is a decent watch which is worth the trouble. Good luck.

    Well, if you're going to glue the dial to the movement, how are you going to get it off when the watch needs a service? Even if you use sticky pads that can be eased off, who is to say that they will not come off when you don't want them to (i.e. between services)? I would say that restoring the feet is the best option - and that can be managed but will have its price.
