    1950's 37mm Champagne dial A-R1292

    Love those Imp engines! I have a ‘68 Lotus Europa S1 and a ‘69 Lotus Seven S3 myself but no matching watch straps. I do have a Heuer Rally Master in the Europa though.

    It would help if you could post a photo and of the front and back of the watch.

    Bezel Retaining Ring for Sherpa Guide 600 Mark II

    You could solder the ends but there is no need to. Many new ones are not.

    Bezel Retaining Ring for Sherpa Guide 600 Mark II

    0.5mm silver-steel jewelry wire and bend to shape. It's a fiddle but it works.

    NOS ones are out there but hard to find and snapped quickly when they do.

    Bezel Retaining Ring for Sherpa Guide 600 Mark II

    The red pointer ring shows up on ebay. There is an orange one up right now and a red one sold just last week. The retaining spring can be made up from suitable piano wire.

    Parts list for Sherpa 300 aqua graph 072-02-02

    There are no new parts, all are NOS. This means that plans of making it water proof again are a bad idea. Fix it up for careful, casual use. So, only change what you have to change. If the crown looks fine, reuse it. Same with the stem. Crystals can be polished and will look excellent...

    WTB: Enicar Super Dive 40mm

    I know some early ones (thin crowns) came with dauphine hands. I'd wait for someone more knowledgeable to chime in.

    WTB: Enicar Super Dive 40mm

    A later model (thick crowns) with dauphine hands? Are you sure they came from the factory that way?

    Thoughts on a Sherpa OPS Oddball?

    Take the back off and see if the movement has (3?) rubber rings being used as isolation mounts: https://www.youtube.com/@HorologyBiology/search?query=ops Again, AFAIK, that's an OPS only feature. If not, I'd say it is an Ultradive with an OPS dial.

    Thoughts on a Sherpa OPS Oddball?

    To my eye, you can see some of the remains of the coating on the crowns. Could be trick of the light though. If it's not there, it could be an ultra-dive with an OPS dial. One way to check would be to look inside and see if the movement is rubber isolated (see horology-B's repair video)...

    Early Jet Graph (black dial)

    Do you mean “seconds” hand for the chrono? Or, second hand as in “hour hand”?

    What Enicar (Seapearl?) model is this?

    Can't comment on the finish as the photos are not in HD. Never seen a Diver (compressor case) with no/zero/ziltch markings. No minute markings, no "Ultrasonic", etc. It looks like a "Sherpa" dial that has had all its finish removed.

    What Enicar (Seapearl?) model is this?

    It looks like a Sherpa (non-date) model. I agree with Slim that the dial has had its details (finish/paint/markings) removed. Might be able to find a replacement dial. They are very good watches with bayonet case back and excellent movements. I have several myself.

    Found an Enicar I really like, can you help me?

    Yes, looks legit to me. Well made watches but not particularly valuable. I'd say both you and the seller did fine.

    You do have quite a few holes free in the clasp which will shorten it up.

    Enicar 100-98

    Enicar made a LOT of watches. The ones the collectors are after are the tool watches (dive, chronograph, 24hr, etc) from the 50, 60s and 70s. All the other watches are well made and excellent timepieces but not particularly valuable.

    It's a gold-plated (20 microns), dress watch from the early 60s.
