Large, stainless steel "Sherpa-Graph" chronograph wrist watch made by Enicar Watch Co. Watch is from the mid sixties.
I bought this watch as an addition to my Wakmann triple. I enjoy it, but want to keep my watch collection going in a different direction (Tudor Chronos, etc.)
Case 80%: Gasket appears to be in new condition. Case width (w/o crown or pushers): 40mm, length lug to lug is 49MM. Case has some superficial knicks, scuffs.
Stainless steel case with locking back has the following written upon it, “Enicar (and logo) Ultrasonic Brevet + 3149XX (serial number) Sherpa 072/001 Stainless Steel Incabloc Swiss.” Smack in the middle is written “Seapearl” and what appears to be an oyster with a pearl throwing off what appears to be sun rays.
Crown 100%: Crown appears to be authentic and in perfect condition.
Dial 100%: Black dial with black registers (30 minute register, 12 hour register and subsidiary seconds). Steel hour markers with luminous tips. Luminous hands. Outer, gray chapter with tachymetre scale. Dial marked with Enicar "planet" logo and signed, "Enicar - Sherpa-Graph". Dial has a wonderful aesthetic.
Movement 100%: High quality, gilt, 17 jewel, chronograph movement (Valjoux 72; same movement as used in Rolex Daytona chronograph). Movement signed, "Enicar" on the bridge and “72” and the Valjoux symbol. Incabloc shock system. Watch functions as designed.
Crystal 60%: Has scuffs and a chip. I would replace.
Hands 60%: They appear to have some age to them. To me, they are beautiful and reflect the proper look for a watch of this age. Don’t think the hands or indicators “glow” anymore.
Pushers 85%: These appear to be in very good to excellent shape.
Bracelet 50%: Bracelet is a period piece but is unsigned. I would upgrade to a Bros Dakota or something.
Email me for more photos, etc.
Asking $925obo or trade for something interesting.
