    Enicar Sherpa: Vintage in Budapest





    I found this Enicar Sherpa last month at a street market in Budapest. I left with 5 vintage Swiss pieces, some of which cost less than a beer in Norway! I was with a friend who had never owned a mechanical watch before, and he ended up getting a vintage Seamaster.

    The seller was an experienced watchmaker, who had quite a few stories to share from a lifetime in the industry over drinks later in the day. He still does watch sales and repair as a day job.

    Beats the heck out of eBay...

    Excellent find. I think I must visit Budapest one day.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Really nice! I'll have to visit Budapest sometime soon, if that is representative of the potential treasures found in the flea markets!

    The Sunday market between Király and Dob utca, parallel to Holló ut. Look for György.
