    A few months ago, I became enamored with this brand with an interesting history, and some beautiful vintage watches. I'm a 'rookie' when it comes to this brand, and I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to see what other Ω-F members have...

    Here's the group shot of mine:

    I took my 100 Fathom to the watchmaker today to open her up, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it's a very early one: September of 1955 :thumbsup:, same month as the first known advertisement for these (according to a self-proclaimed expert on eBay):

    My SeaPearl 600, with a more patinated, similar dial, is from December 1957:

    This one has a much cleaner (and prettier!) movement, but they both are due a service!

    Not sure. Would need to get to the bank and pull them out for a look.

    One lonely Enicar resides here. Came from Belgium. A good serviceable watch that is comfortable to wear on this shark strap. Ought to wear it more often.

    Quick question: What's the difference between the dice and the divette?

    It's subtle, I know, but clear when you see them side by side. :thumbsup:

    It's a miserable day in Dundee, so I thought I'd cheer myself up by taking a couple of photos for this thread.

    My Enicar Sherpa Super Dive says hello. Suspect mine still has its original crystal on it which has become quite spiderwebbed over time . . . i personally think it is beautiful. Love the angular lugs too. In it's beat up state, it's still easily one of the favourite watches I own.
