My son, who shares my interest in watches, just sent me a picture of a watch he picked up. He was wondering what I knew about it. My answer was "very little" but I would post something and try to find out. It is a manual wind and says "Swiss". Here is the picture. He said it runs well. Thanks

Thanks Dan. Yes the dial did look a little too good. He said he paid $50 so even with the refinished dial he did ok. Thanks for the link. Will check it out.

Dan, what do you think about the hour and minute hand? I’m thinking they don’t match (looking at where they attach) and wondering if I’m correct. Thanks.

Mike
You are correct. The minute hand is "alpha", the hour hand is "dauphine". The seconds hand is too short. If any of them are correct, it would probably be the minute hand.

I'm looking for a nice Enicar but it's hard to find an all original one without breaking the bank.

Not true at all! I've been collecting Enicar for years, and there are many, many great Enicars still to be had for reasonable prices. But, it depends on what you're looking for. If you want a NOS Sherpa Super Dive for less than $1,000...those days are long gone. But, you can find really cool, single crown Seapearls or Sherpas (full on EPSA super compressors) for less than $500, sometimes for as little as $100 if you're lucky. But...know what you're buying (like with any vintage watches). Most of what you see on eBay is garbage, franken watches. Once you learn what to look for, you'll be surprised what you'll find.
