    Vintage watches with thermometer

    Hello, I just got NOS condition Enicar thermograph from 1955. Rare and nice find no doubt. Do you have any watch similar to this one? As I have got througout the internet I found there were few watches with physical thermometere: Lip, Difor and Zurnik. Do you know any more?

    Now that's a useful complication! I wonder why it never caught in?

    Perfect for measuring the temperature under your shirt cuff.

    "In the late 1950's Enicar began supplying watches to mountain climbers and other sportsmen and adventurers as a marketing exercise. Enicar watches accompanied the Swiss expedition to the top of Lhotse and Everest in the Himalayas"... The official swiss expedition was in 1956, as there is officially 'Seapearl' model mentioned, I believe models with thermometer hadn't been done as a suit watches :) I haven't checked the accuracy yet, but I don't think it is precise after 60 years...

    there are few other vintage watches I mentioned in the first post:

    Great complication. Even if not terribly accurate, it's not something one sees very often.

    Presumably that's where it matters...

    Definitely not vintage but I just wanted to let a poster know that at least one company is still making them.
