Vintage Stainless Steel Enicar Sherpa Graph Chronograph Ref. 07202-01

$13,895

Pre-owned Vintage Enicar 40mm Sherpa Graph Chronograph Black Dial, Leather Strap, Ref. 07202-01

Enicar had the famous racing car driver Stirling Moss introduce their new Sherpa Graph model in 1960.  However, it was the driver Jim Clark whose name is today associated with the model, as the Sherpa Graph was a favorite of his.  Based on the Valjoux 72 caliber, the 40mm stainless steel chronograph is the quintessential vintage chronograph.

There were variations in the dial, with this watch being a Mark IV variant that was introduced in 1966.  The Mark IV model had baton hands and a Sherpa 300 Seapearl case back. This watch has the word tachymetre and the scale goes to 300. The chronograph hand is the red lollipop dot that transitioned from earlier production watches but some Mark IVs included a red triangular tapered hand.  The Saturn logo is raised on the dial and also is on the hatched crown, as expected.  The black dial is largely unmarred, with a light scratch in the minute sub-register that is visible under magnification.  The tritium lume on the indexes is puffy and intact.  The dial appears clean and is quite attractive.  The stainless steel case with curved lugs make this a comfortable wearing watch and the lugs have clean, defined edges.  The case is free of major nicks and scratches, with only a few nicks from changing the straps by previous owners.  Overall, it is a clean and well maintained watch.

Description

Under the leadership of Ariste Racine, Jr., Enicar produced their own movements in a clean laboratory environment, which proved to be highly accurate.  Enicar continued innovating with the development of a water-resistant case with an unusual bayonet back that they christened the Seapearl.  With this reputation for ruggedness and accuracy, Enicar encouraged mountain climbing expeditions to carry their watches. Soon after their watches were seen in the Himalayas.  The Sherpa models were named for the famous guides with the same name.
