Firstly introduced in 1956, the Enicar Sherpa is a beast designed and used to summit Mount Everest. This tool watch has it all, GMT function, worldtimer, sweeping seconds, big black dial and a supercompressor case to die for. It’s protected by a full stainless steel case measuring 43mm (not including crowns) and packs a 22mm suede strap to match its character. Both crowns, original, are signed by the recognisable Enicar logo. We date this piece circa 1965-1970.
It’s powered by the prestigious automatic caliber 166 with the date function at 3 o’clock and a 24h inner rotating bezel, operated with the crown located at 2 o’clock. The tritium lume this beast packs makes it highly legible in all the conditions possible, and it still glows!
On the back we can see the gorgeous oyster signature next to the incscription “Sherpa 600”. This, of course, is water-resistant, although we do not recommend exposing this watch to water, due to its age.
It’s just perfect for those who have larger wrists or those who just want to pack some serious heat on their wrists.
This is a piece that comes by once in a lifetime, grab it now or regret it for the rest of your life!
