    Signed book cover by Ariste Racine

    Enicar was founded in 1913 by Ariste Racine Sr. I will meet his grandson, also named Ariste Racine, in April for a new interview and a photoshoot by Maarten Coolen. Mister Racine worked in the Lengnau factory from 1969 till 1984 and already made an important contribution to the book in September last year by sharing his knowledge and anecdotes. He will hand sign 10 beautiful prints of the book cover (25 x 25). A print will be added to the book, that is included in this reward. And last but not least: a gorgeous print of the photoshoot with Ariste Racine is also in the package. This is the ultimate Enicar fan reward!

    Includes:
    • The Enicar Book, brand new and smoking hot
    • Hand signed print of the book cover by Ariste Racine
    • A print from the Ariste Racine photoshoot, made by Maarten Coolen

    Your own Enicar photoshoot on location

    The awesome photographers Geertjan Cornelissen and Nancy Ostermann from Verse Beeldwaren will do a professional photo series that can match the quality of the photoshoots for the Enicar sales manager, the church and the American war cemetery. Depending on the Enicar you want to star in the pictorial, the creative team (that includes author Martijn) will discuss the possibilities with you to make something unique, just for you. You will be the model in the photos. Imagine having a custom made Enicar advertising photo in your living room, that stars you and your favourite watch, in a period specific setting that you decide... This is a unique opportunity!

    Due to the cost of transportation, this reward is only available for backers from Europe. If traveling costs (by car, train or plane) and a modest hotel room for 3 persons exceeds €600, the extra costs will be charged to the backer of this reward.
