There are only a few things I enjoy more than writing about Enicar. One of them is talking about the brand. So when I was invited a few weeks back by Fifth Wrist Radio to have a chat about the book, I didn’t have to think twice.
Fifth Wrist is a true watch community. Sharing knowledge and educating each other. Looking out for our fellow enthusiasts. On their podcast series ‘Independent Thinking’, hosts Roman (@TimesRomanAU) and Adam (@mediumwatch) and me had a 90 minutes conversation about the Enicar watch company, horological history, research, Kickstarter campaigns, Rolex adverts, avoiding lawyers, radium lume and just what it takes to write and publish a book on vintage watches as a labour of love.
Roman classifies himself as a horological history nerd, and collector of horological books, art and timepieces made by independent makers. He is a passionate defender of horological artisans, watchmakers, independent watch sellers, and is always keen to shine a spotlight on the amazing contributions the ‘indies’ make to the industry.
Adam is an American collector of watches and art, with a bias towards the Bauhaus. True to his handle, his collection revolves around modestly-sized watches from a wide range of both obscure and popular brands.
