Enicar Sherpa Guide GMT 600 Super Compressor case

this watch is no longer available for sale


If you have been following the vintage watch market you know this brand is hot !

Enicar makes some fantastic looking pieces that can be had for a good deal. This Sherpa Guide is their GMT model featuring the in-house developed Enicar 166 movement. The outer bezel shows worldwide cities and the red index can be rotated 360° to keep track of any of the cities featured. Tracking a second timezone, the inner bezel is rotated with the crown at 2. These are often found faded and abused – used for their intended purpose I imagine. However, the condition of this all-original piece is quite literally astounding. At 44mm this is an easily wearable watch and it’s guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.
Vintage diver? Check. Bright colors? Check. Cushion case? Check. GMT complication? Check. Inner rotating bezel? Check.

Amazing condition, what a beautiful watch in original condition, even with original Enicar steel bracelet!
