Enicar Dress Watch 1965c


The Enicar brand was established in 1854 by Artiste Racine who named it by spelling his name backwards.

I know little about Enicar history or its products before the sixties but a special time existed for it in the sixties and seventies when they developed there own movements and focused on sports watches.

Having said that, this as nowhere near a sports watch but a very slim, elegant dress watch. 

I date this in the mid sixties when a dress watch had no seals, usually no date and often not shock protected.

This watch would leak at the mention of moisture but does have the incabloc shock absorbers.

It is very slim, sits beautifully on the wrist and the in house, gold plated AR1140 (AR for  Artiste Racine) movement is efficient and attractive


About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
