    Help with identification vintage ENICAR watch needed

    Hi,
    I just found this nice piece in my grandfather´s stuff and I would like to identify what type or product line it was. If it is original as manufactured or "home made product"
    I tried to browse the Internet and I couldn´t find anything from Enicar that would at least resemble to this my heritage.
    Well, thanks in advance for any kind of help...

    Hi and welcome.

    I've not seen one like that either. Interesting.

    The back of the case has 'Staybrite' on it which I believe indicates that the steel was made in Sheffield, UK, at the Staybrite works of Firth-Vickers Archived Report - Firth Vickers Stainless Steels, Staybrite Works Sheffield, Nov '09 so it was likely made for the British market.

    Someone else may know more.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Very unusual, can't say if those lugs are original.

    I don't know the exact history of the 'staybrite' patent, but 'staybrite' steel cases are nice and can be found in Swiss watches made around the 1940's. The dial also looks like 1940's. Or maybe even 1930's.
