Hi  Gary Have a look on their web site enicar.com or the wiki page it gives the whole history. They were Swiss (, .Racine Family) but bow owned by the chinese    There is plenty of information out there. If we have a caliber number there is more to be had.

Hi

Weasol

I would put photos up but i bought the watch today. I have just tried to remove the back with all the usual suspects but it wont budge.

It was sold to me as just been serviced. So back should have screwed of easily.

IF i continue any more with it i may damage it .

So its going back to the seller for refund.

thanks anyway

Not sure what the "usual suspects" are but not having the correct tools does not seem a good reason to return an item.

The usual tools are adjustable watch repair wrench tool

a jaxa wrench

And the 3 claw wrench. 

After that I usually glue a wrench to it. 

Any other methods I'm willing to try. 

Regards

Gary

Hehe

Enicar had two type of caseback.. the bayonet type and a screw type.

The giveaway is a little triangle around the edge of the caseback. I believe this was supposed to line up with a reference on the case.. or maybe the crown.

Good job figuring it out, took me a while too!

Yes, a bench opener. With the proper dies it opens any tight watch, as none of the tools you mentioned places vertical pressure on the caseback, nor holds the case securely. A two handles Jaxa opener also is a step forward.
