The "tapestry" dial is awesome at close range.
He sold it has "handwound", but from the reference number as well as the movement it was clear that it is missing the automatic bridge and rotor, and settled the question why the dial says "automatic". And I happen to have spares here, so I will get that fixed easily. Alone selling the spare straps with the original Enicar buckles and print will re-imburse me with probably half of what I paid in total (despite these are 60ies quality, both leather and "tin buckles", not what one is used to these days.)
But the buckle mounted on the watch shown in the picture above is of a different kind, more solid:
These buckles do by now go for 30-40 a piece, if You are lucky to find one. Unfortunately some of those on the market have "unconventional size", so it is not straight forward to find a strap that fits. I have them mounted on a number of my Enicar, bought them early when the hype was not so bad yet.
