Sponsor a book about Enicar

Post by koimaster » March 6th 2019, 9:39am

Time for a change: a book about the lost watch brand Enicar

A book about a forgotten Swiss watch brand that combines photography, storytelling, history, graphic design and cool 'n funky watches.

Founder Artiste Racine established the company 'Racine Watch Co.' in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland in 1914, when he ingeniously reversed the spelling of his own last name to become the timeless brand 'Enicar'. The name has since been recognized as a symbol of quality.

It will surely be as comprehensive as a Bazinga! review.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

Bump! :mrgreen:

The guy is dead serious about the book. A couple of members on German uhrforum.de are actually in touch with him (have been so for quite a while).

Btw, I did receive the book early in January - he got if off press just before Christmas, but didn't manage to ship all anymore.
It is very well made, and - to me - worth the money. I also received an early copy of Enicar's "in-house" magazine, which is quite interesting, and since I am not a true collector, quite super-fluous.
