A most enjoyable and informative thread...many thanks for posting. I've had the odd Enicar here and there but i don't own any at the moment.
Very interesting information. I did not know much about Gallet watches, but I did some research and this is what I found between the families.Crazyfist, thank you for the photos of your watchmaker and of the love for Enicar! You might know there is a connection between these folks and my vintage watch of choice, Gallet. Of course, not many have heard of Gallet, but one of their cousins was Jules Racine based in New York in the late 30's. He was the only US importer of Gallet for many years. It was another Racine cousin that became interested in the watch business but for unknown reasons, split entirely with the Gallet connection and formed Enicar, which is Racine backwards.
That is the information as I know it. I've seen variations on that story as well. Obviously, you have put a lot more research in this than I have, I would enjoy hearing your take on that, if you know anything regarding it.
Beautiful Enicar, and thanks for the link! I have faith that this thread will also grow with many pretty Enicar pictures.
