Enicar Chronograph - Valjoux 92

This c. 1960 Enicar Chronograph was in rough shape when it came to me for service and repair. The crystal was lost at some point and the hands and dial had suffered as a result. I sent the dial out for refinishing and, while the refinisher did not perfectly replicate the original dial (they rarely do), the result was a dramatic improvement. I replaced the luminous paint in the hour and minute hands to match the refinished luminous hour numerals. I also stripped and repainted the red chronograph hand. The Valjoux 92 movement was in good mechanical order and responded well to cleaning, proper lubrication, and a new alloy mainspring. I also serviced the pushers, fit a new rubber case back gasket, and new plastic crystal with silver reflector. The restoration transformed a vintage watch that was one step from someone's parts bin into a timepiece which is again suitable for regular wear.
