    I thought I needed a dress watch.... These seems to be very good value, and they can be found in excellent condition.

    Mini-Dives, I only really like them a little bit

    I also got mine from Italy recently and there was one more on offer at the same time in what appeared to be NOS condition. Maybe someone must have found a stach of unsold ones....

    Mini-Dives, I only really like them a little bit

    They are really cute and with a lot of attitude... it would be interessting to know how popular they where in the day since there are e.g. the two ones to the right that you have, and the one I got that are virtually unused...

    Planet trouble

    Been there done that😬......I think the bracelet is the best thing on mine...I think of it as part of learning... Before that I was not aware that fake parts was really an issue with a relatively obscure brand such as Enicar.

    WRUW today?

    My recent find. A rare JDM (Japan domestic market) only Seiko 7017-6050. This is actually a relative to the Enicar Mantagraph. The moment is basically the same hi-beat with fly-back, but without the subdials..

    Early Aqua Graph at Christies auction

    That red ring was a really bad design anyway. I broke mine on my Jetgraph back when I was a kid. I think it got stuck in a sweater when I should put it on over my head.....

    Watch sightings and stories

    In my experience people are not so different. If a person has an interessting watch they most certainly are interested in watches themselves and really apreciate when someone notice. Once you get them going it can be hard to stop them... it is good for the situation if your watch is interessting...

    What other vintage brands do you collect?

    I have no idea about the origin of the display caseback, but I think this is a good feature for this particular watch,

    Underappreciated Enicar Models

    I totally agree with you. I like it since I also have a weak spot for vintage Seikos. Interesstingly this movement was made at the other Seiko site, Daini, set up independently from the Suwa site, where e.g the more well known 6139, 6138 was made. They set up the other to be an internal...

    Watch sightings and stories

    I feel it could be usefull with thread like this after I saw this watch this week. I was at an aerospace congress in Stockholm and happen to engage in a conversation with a (very) old but young at heart airline pilot. I could not help but noticing that he had something interessting on his wrist...

    What other vintage brands do you collect?

    I feel I always have been technology oriented and the japaneese did the same leep past the Europeans in watches, as they did with motorcycles, cars and cameras in the seventies. When it comes to watches I have aquired recently some automatic chronographs From Seiko and Citizen. I think they are...

    What other vintage brands do you collect?

    I have not got more active into the watch collection until this year, but always had a lingering intersst that I got from my dad who had connections with the watchmaker school where I grew up. He was somewhat of a collector but with great moderation, and he had his Omega Speedmaster for most of...
