My (latest) grail arrived yesterday.  36mm, auto, steel and gold, just what I wanted since I sold the 35mm quartz one I used to have

:inlove:

I know this watch divides opinion but not in this house

Morning,

It’ll be this steel-cased Enicar today with its 17j AR 171 sporting a tarnished crown wheel.

The clasp of what is almost certainly an Indian knock-off of a Bonklip bracelet is stamped as "Wandayke", trademarked and marketed in Bombay by The Swiss Trading Co in the '40s and '50s, whenever else. Not entirely sure how I ended up with one on an Enicar, but I suspect that this watch may have enjoyed an Indian holiday at some stage of its life.

Regards.

Had this over a year, it's jolly comfortable, but I would not go so far as to say you forget you are wearing it ...

And remember to take it off before you step on the scales, or you won't see the benefit of your portion reduction strategy!

Im pleased to say this as regulated down to -30 seconds in 24 hours. Strange thing being that at dead centre it was running crazy fast. So i regulated right over to the negative which resulted in a loss of 5 minutes in 24 hours. I worked a tiny amount forward over 2 days and the weird thing is, its now only 2 marks over to minus on the regulated....ill see how it goes on. Presumably tightening the hair spring over 2 days and its held tension hence the move back towards centre?...

I think you maybe correct, it looks like they did the dial while it was there. :biggrin:

I like the artwork on the dial - have you ever tried that on mesh/ milanese? I think it would work, maybe :yes:

Been on the wrist for a wee while now, A bit boring that I haven't changed it considering the amount I can choose from, but, it's a great watch to have in 'residency'
