I'm putting my Enicar Sherpa Super-Dive MkIII up for sale to feed the Kickstarter campaign I'm running to get the Enicar book funded. The Enicar book is a passion project for me. The title of the book is ‘Time for a change: Discovering vintage Enicar’. This book will be a combination of storytelling, interviews, design, marketing- and watch brand history, watch technology and photography. For the photography, my photographers and I ‘recreated’ set pieces from 1979, 1971, 1968, 1944 and even 1918!
The watch for sale features in one of these photoshoots and is therefor documented for all Enicar fans in the world. What makes this watch so special, is the text on the dial. It says 'Super Quartz' in stead of 'Automatic'. On my Enicar weblog www.enicar.org I've written a post on the origin of this dial and what it - in my opinion - means. I have never seen a dial like this in all my years of collecting.
- the watch is in great condition, running strong
- all functions (rotating inner bezel, day-date) are 100% in order
- AR1167 movement, in house built by Enicar
- 42mm EPSA super compressor watch case
- original bracelet and 22mm white Tropic strap included
I have also put the watch on the Kickstarter campaign page as a reward with the Enicar book and 2 A2 prints of the photoshoot included. You can see it / buy it there: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/enicarbook/time-for-a-change-a-book-about-the-lost-watch-bran?ref=user_menu
If you just want to buy the watch, you can contact me by e-mail. The price is €2500 + shipping, preferably by wire. The revenues will go directly into the book funding campaign.
This offer will be available till April 1th, because that is the day the Kickstarter campaign will end. The Enicar book can only be made if the funding is 100%.
