Errors in Judgment: 1970s Birks Enicar Watch

1970s Birks Watch

As much as I brag about finding a Rolex in a $10 in a bag of broken watches, for every deal, I’ve probably spent $50 on duds. For example, I picked up this admittedly cool looking Birks watch for $4 on the weekend. I thought it was working because the second hand moved when I was testing it to see if it wound up at all. That was, unfortunately, the first and last time it ticked. And even though Birks is a high-end jeweller and it has an Enicar movement, I doubt that it’s worth the cost of having it serviced (unless I get one of the guys at the St. Lawrence market to do it for less than $10). Grrrr.
