I'm putting my Enicar Sherpa Star Diver 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!
Here's the link to the Kickstarter campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/enicarbook/time-for-a-change-a-book-about-the-lost-watch-bran?ref=user_menu
The watch for sale is a Sherpa Star Diver with a huge rotating diver ring, in a mesmerizing black 'n red color pattern. It's a real eye catcher. The snowflake hands are typical for the period the watch was built, as it dates from 1969. The watch was completely overhauled by my watchmaker last December.
- the watch is in great condition, running strong
- all functions (rotating outer bezel, day-date) are 100% in order
- AR1167 movement, in house built by Enicar
- 40mm EPSA super compressor watch case
- screw crown
- flawless PVD case with hardly any trace of use
- 20mm black Tropic strap included (short version)
The price of this watch is €2750 + 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%.
Thanks for looking!
