The Watch
It's fair to say that the Sherpa line from Enicar was the line that really put Enicar on the map, with a fair few well known Models, the Enicar Super Dive, is probably the most sought after of them all.
It's quite well known that the Polish Military thought so much of these Watches that they issued them, whilst this one is a Civilian model, its to the exact same spec which they regarded so highly.
This Guy is a wonderful example, that Grey inner rotating Bezel looks supreme against the jet Black Dial with Tritium lume that has aged a wonderful almost Honey colour.
We've paired this with a Light Brown Hirsch Osiris Leather Strap to blend in with that wonderful lume.
We've priced this extremely fairly, one of this exact reference but with a poorer case, lume and overall condition sold at Sterling Vault Auctioneers on the 26th May for £3000 hammer to a online bidder which accrued 24% fees on top (£3720 total). This is yet another example as to how we are one of the fairest retailers out there.
It's a winner!
