Iv'e often admired images of members vintage watches and clocks on this forum, but been too lazy to Google search details of them.
I'm starting a thread that lets you tell us why a particular watch you own or have owned deserves RESPECT
To save pages of long detailed forensic descriptions of everything you have ever read about your watch or clock this thread requires the following.
1. Pics - so we all know what your talking about
2. No more than 10 smallish bullet points of info ( First man to land on the surface of the sun wearing this cool beauty - etc. etc. )
Bored already ? This will put you to sleep
I'll get it started with
THE ENICAR SHERPA GRAPH 300
||Click this bar to view the original image of 1024x759px.
* A late 50's -1960's watch manufactured by Enicar, a Swiss maker selling quality ' regular ' watches worldwide but better known to the Asian market.
* Top of the line were the SHERPA models, named strangely enough after Sherpa's who guided Enicar wearing climbers on successful expeditions.
* Enicar sponsored Jim Clark - Possibly the Worlds greatest ever racing driver. Contemporary images would appear to show him wearing a Sherpa Graph.
* Much admired for the distinctive beautiful reverse panda dial - The dials changed slightly during the production life of this watch.
* Highly regarded gilt Valjoux 72 movement - Similar movement to the much vaunted Rolex Daytona.
* Big and durable 40 mm without the crown case.
* Triple register chronograph
* Highly regarded EPSA Super Compressor divers case with Enicar divers cross hatched crowns. Brevet 314962 Enicar bayonet fit
* Still not 'silly money' for good examples
Cosying up to it's Sherpa Super Divette brother
