    Enicar vintage or not?

    Hello to all!

    I'm interested in a vintage Enicar currently on the Bay. According to the pictures I have some doubts...

    First the case back: it's a "Star Ocean"" one, but the dial just says "17 Star Jewels". I'm not a connoisseur of the Enicar models: is it normal?

    Second the dial itself seems very very clean. I guess it's a redial, how do you guys think?

    Other than that, the movement looks like the original one but I attach it to confirm.

    Thanks for any feedback!

    Nicolas

    Bonus question: is someone able to date the watch? The S/N seems to be 110-00-01 but the picture is quite blurry so not 100% sure!

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, but why on earth, given the large number of vintage Enicar circulating in the market, would you be attracted to that one?

    Case and movement in poor condition, and mismatched hand-set and dial, even if the dial were original. (You would never see gold hands with steel hour markers.)

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    Hm, in this case I really would appreciate you point me to this large number of vintage Enicar circulating... My recent research on most French aftermarket places (leboncoin, amazon merchants, priceminister, eBay) showed less than 10 watches, most of which are in awful condition compared to the one mentioned above *or* selling for several hundreds euros, which is not my price range, all the most considering the few posts I read with WISers buying vintage Enicars in perfect condition for $5 or so...

    My friend, I'd pass without a doubt these models. You need patience.

    Hi Nicolas,

    I am not going to spend much time doing searches that anyone can easily do, but here are a couple of examples that are far superior to the ones that you have shown. I confined my quick search to Europe on eBay, but of course there are many other venues.

    Re: Enicar vintage or not?

    Thanks Tony. Very strange: your link in ebay.com says the watch ships from UK, which is fine for me, but the exact same article in ebay.fr says shipped from China and warns about import/VAT taxes, which frightened me and made me pass this specific watch when I saw it... I'll try to see why the location is different!
