    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    Just received my first Enicar, but I've done quite a bit of research and have some experience with vintage pieces. Here's mine that I won on an auction for less than $60 shipped (CONUS). They're definitely out there if you're patient and a little lucky.

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    I call Enicar "Little Omega" as they are really sought after and have a dedicate following so it's not easy to get ones hands on a good one for little money.

    I have a few in waiting and I'll see if I can get some time to service a nice one.

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    This one is on ebay.com but not on ebay.fr, the seller is based in China (but I know Enicar watches are not uncommon there) the description seems honest:

    Date of manufacture: Circa 1950's age,SWISS MADE

    Working:Runs

    Accuracy:Not tested,cleaning/service is recommended for the best performance

    Movement:17 Jewels Mechanical,Cal.1020,Manual Wind,signed

    Case:Stainless steel,Ref.No#100/92 EaS

    Dial & hands:Nice 100% original,professional refinished

    Crown:Nice 100% original,signed

    Crystal:Nice.refitted new aftermarket Acrylic

    Band:Nice.refitted new aftermarket,Leather,Brown

    Size:. Width(Without the crown). ----...33.5mm

    ........ Length(From lug to lug). .. ----.. 41.5mm

    Waterproof & Incabloc:Not tested
    ...but is it me or the new crystal seems to be a little too small for the case? I kinda see a gap on the left side?

    The stem is broken off and the date is also broken so some parts need to be sourced but the movement is working fine.

    Please forgive my stupidity, but I'm not entirely sure how one reconciles "100% original" with "professional (sic) refinished", an expression also much used by the Mumbai Maulers.

    Regards.

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    Enicar is one of those brands you really need to take your time with as they are so popular and so many watches are cobbeld together to make a fast buck. There are other not that expensive brands like Favre Leuba that are so faked that there are 9 fakes for every 1 real watch, if not more.

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    Thanks shum, I'll definitely follow your advice!

    I have subscribed to eBay alerts for "enicar", now I just wait and see...

    Also I think I'll favour the watches where several people bid, rather than the franken-watch direct purchases... Several bids should normally tell it's a more genuine watch I hope!

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    Looking at the very first watch in this thread, I was reminded of "Monty Python" whose films were made by the "Hand Made Films" Company*

    Hartmut Richter


    (* or in this case: Hand Made Dials!)
