So first of, HELLO! I am new here and was excited to find a cool watch forum. While I have been fascinated by wrist watches my entire life, its only recently that I have really gotten into them and considered myself starting a "collection".
One of the watches that I have is a Enicar Sherpa Graph 300. I am looking into having it restored. I didnt really know what I had until a few months back. I have owned the watch for about 18 years. Its basically sat in a jewelry box. My grandfather had purchased it new here in the states sometime around the late 60's I think. He lost it in the early 80's. Turns out that I found it about 10 years later IN THE GROUND in the front of my house. I cleaned it off and then wound it up and it kept time perfect! Imagine that 10 years in the ground and started right back up. The original leather watch band was shot but at least the watch was in good shape.
So I have kept the watch safe ever since. It means a lot to me knowing it was my grandfathers watch. I have read the history on the Enicar watches and I think its pretty interesting.
So I guess my question to those here with alot more knowledge then I is this...what do you think this watch is worth? (not looking to sell, just curious). Also does anyone know anywhere in the NY (united states) area that can restore this watch?
The crystal could really be polished and the only issue with it is the 3 oclock marker is lose inside the watch as you can probably tell from the pictures.... But you can still read everything that was engraved into the back of the watch, all the numbers, etc.
Anyhow thank you for your time and I really appreciate all the feedback.
