    Seeking information on this Enicar

    Hello all,

    Wondering if there might be an Enicar expert out there who can tell me a bit about this watch - model, likely movement and approximate age would be wonderful.

    I inherited it from my father, and unfortunately I didn't even know it existed until after he was gone, so I never had a chance to ask him about it. It's currently with a watch repairer for a refurb, so he may be able to tell me a bit about it after having it open, but as that's 8 weeks away, I thought I'd try you fine folk.

    The caseback has been worn smooth, with the only text still readable being "automatic swiss" and "125/001". The mesh strap is not original.

    Thanks!

    1125 automatic caliber. Star Jewels indicates a 1145 though. Interesting. Perhaps a late production 1125 with the SJ treatment. Your watchmaker can probably tell you better after it is open.

    One other possibility is the watch was fitted with a later dial at some point. Given it was tour father's watch, the odds are a bit small on that. A known provenance...

    Also, Enicar crowns are on the bay.

    Lose the band and and go with a brown croc strap. Very elegant timepiece.

    Thanks very much for your reply.

    Agree about the strap - the watch is with a repairer at the moment, and he's told me that the strap was digging into the lugs and causing damage so I'm replacing it with some nice brown leather.

    Very nice! I love Enicar and this is a fine example. Hopefully you can get some pictures of the movement. Enjoy!

    Hi everyone. Just a followup post - the watch has been away with my watchmaker being serviced and refurbished, and I can report that it's an AR1145 movement but has no apparent serial numbers. It's now looking like new and ready to run for another 50 years.
