    Enicar Ultrasonic 17j gold dress winder



    I found this Enicar a year or so ago... and fell in love with it's clean lines.





    Clearly it does not qualify as the world's thinnest watch... But it is quite thin and makes a wonderful piece for work or social events.






    It has one of Enicar's own movements, the 982, which dates it to about 1960.





    But one of it's neatest features is the subsecond 'hand'... It's not a hand -- it is a DISK! I have never seen this before... neither had my watchmaker.






    This specific movement was serviced right after I acquired it and currently times out as follows:
    beat error <0.5ms
    Amplitude appx 190 degrees
    Rates: +/- sec/day
    DU +7
    DD +9
    CU -19
    CR -3
    CL -4
    CD +20

    Not bad for a watch almost as old as me

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Since your version of the Enicar 982 does not have shock protection I would say that it is older then 1960. I would date it to around 1950.

    It's a nice watch.

    The subsecond disc is new to me - and I want one.

    My kind of watch! Elegant, yet subdued. Take that Rolex and other bling watches.

    I got myself just the same watch, it was found in a box wich belong to a very old man, who died, it was very dirty and it had no bracelet on it. I cleaned it up and buy me a new orange leather bracelet en the watch somehow managed to be my today's favorite watch. It's very exact in time, less than 1 minute in 3 months! I am very pleased with this watch en will never sell it, but i would like to know the value of this watch. It is exact the same as on the pictures above.

    Hi there.

    We don't give valuations in this forum for a variety of reasons - there is a sticky explaining some of them. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/vin...les-67379.html and we suggest that you use ebay to get a rough idea of market value https://forums.watchuseek.com/f295/ho...ch-436469.html

    Sounds like you have a nice watch.

    Wow, at least 2 of them have survived! It is a very unique design. You should post some pics!

    I don't remember what I paid for mine and the records are on a PC which no longer boots... I need to get it back up and get the info onto something more enduring like paper! LOL I'm almost as cheap as Steve so it wasn't expensive, a couple of hundred at most. But that is still a lot of watch for the money. (Why do people buy new watches? I don't understand it... oh well, more watches for us in 10-20 years!)

    Yes when you have been bitten by the vintage bug new watches have nothing to offer anymore, and this watch is up there with the best of the best in my book. And You know what they say, the only thing wrong with it is that it's not mine...
