    Nice buyers guide which specifically references this thread. I assume eBay's 'hns' is our 'hns-panama'?
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Who wants some Enicar Chrono facts and questions ? Not that it really matters because you're getting some anyway
    It's possibly already living somewhere in this thread but ----- here is an extract from the 1968 Chronosport catalogue.
    These people sold discounted sports chrono's by post in the UK.
















    Here's the Enicar offerings








    and here's the price list





    Here's the questions


    Sherpa Graph. 'This chrono has been the choice of more than one world motor racing champion'
    Well, we know about Jim Clark but who is, or were the others ?
    60's candidates would be Jackie Stewart, Denny Hulme, Phil Hill, Graham Hill and John Surtees. Does any one know who else wore the Sherpa ?

    The copy says that Sherpa Graph is waterproof to 160 ft , yet Aqua Graph to 325 ft. I can only think that Enicar would have provided
    them with such precise information. Yet they both use the same EPSA brevet 314962 super compressor case ?

    Sherpa Jet is the most expensive Enicar on offer and was pitched at a similar price to the Heuer Autavia GMT. What was in the spec of the Sherpa Jet
    to justify a higher price than a triple register chrono ?

    Great history! I really like reading these old ads.

    As for your last question, I think they meant Sherpa jet graph, which is chrono with 2nd time zone, it's the last watch on page 19.

    Anywhere to find a complete scan of this catalogue?
