A very pretty engraved case, beautiful dial, and original engraved watch band make this vintage Enicar ladies’ watch a great example of 1920’s wrist watches. The case bezel is engraved top and sides. The case is made by Gotham and Chrome plated. White metals were very popular at the time.
Case measures 1″ wide not including the crown by 1 3/16″ across the wire lugs. Bracelet band fits wrists up to 7 1/2″, it adjusts by clasping one end on to the opposite side of the band. Releases by pinching the clasp on its width. Very ingenious design!
Silver dial has toning, very legible, angled Arabic numbers in true Art Deco fashion. Center is engraved in a starburst or flower pattern. It has some toning, likely it is Sterling Silver. All numbers are present.
Crystal is in very good condition, a small line at 7 o’clock to the side, not the face. Does not impede reading.
The manual movement requires winding. Swiss made 6 jewels, 2 adjustments. Movement is also marked Enicar and Alprosawco.
This Enicar watch is about 100 years old, runs and keeps usable time but it has not been fully restored. We cannot guarantee it will continue to run. It can be worn with no issues. Some darkening on the dial (probably Silver) and loss on the plating on the back of the case.
