    Another Alprosa by Enicar

    Today sees the arrival of an Alprosa - an Enicar brand. Allegedly serviced by a retired watchmaker - working nicely and keeping time.



    It has an Enicar movement - maybe the 412:



    And comes with a nice condition leather strap with Strealine patented deployment clasp. I showed another of these recently - but not in as nice condition.

    See https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/has...en-433416.html

    Unfortunately, the OP has edited his posts to ruin the thread somewhat.

    Anyway, its easy to adjust and very comfortable.





    My other Alprosa is here:

    I was watching that one and considered having a go for it, but my attention was diverted by a Marvin "flying dutchman". Glad I didn't compete with you.

    recently picked up this..........


    with a similar deployment system, but in this case I removed the strap and replaced it with a black pig skin style.

    That's nice. You have good taste. But the brand is not known to me - any information on ERY?

    How about a movement shot - and post your Marvin too.

    Very nice watches here guys. ERY is a new one on me as well. That clasp is quite an interesting find.


    I have also got one from this era with teardrop lugs coming. It is also a brand (not the new Indian brand ) that no one has any info on - TITAN. I'll post it here as it is thematically similar to Marrick's Alprosa. It cost me an outrageous $1 .

    I don't know - but they look like replacements to me. The seller assured me it was properly serviced 2 months ago.

    Actually, its the whole strap. There is a metal plate sewn into the 'buckle' end which has a clip poking through which can be moved along the holes in the clasp to alter the length. Its not like a modern deployment clasp which fits onto any old leather strap.

    I look forward to seeing your Titan!

    The hands are original, but I would be shocked if the lume is original. Nice pick-up, the movement looks like it is in great shape.

    Will try to take some pics tomorrow. The Marvin has a black textured dial which will be a sod to photo but I will try. The "Ery" is using an ETA 900, but I have come up with a big zilch regarding the name.
