Enicar - mystery website?

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia »

As many of you will know, I'm fond of Enicars and have a couple of old ones. Digging around a while ago I found this website

It dates from 2005, is in English, French and (I think) Chinese. There appear to be a lot of new watches there - I especially like the lovely blue Ocean Pearl Automatic (Collections tab)

But...I can't find them for sale anywhere! I think I read somewhere that the brand name was bought by a company in China, but the dial definitely says Swiss Made.

Anyone got any ideas about this, please?

There's a customer service tab so you could try e-mailing them for ADs, can't hurt. :thumbup:

Cheers, I noticed that - might be worth a go, but a bit wary as the site appears to be 7 years old and there is no address or anything!

A little know fact.

Enicar was created when Artiste Racine (Racine Watch Co.) spelled his name backwards.

Indeed, the old ones are lovely, but I can't work out why their so-called official website has new, modern designs that appear not to exist!

No distributers? new web site is since 2005 - googled enica watches 2005 and someone on the time tech talk managed to buy one as it was put up for sale so they might be available in America perhaps:
