ENICAR SHERPA 600 BRUSSELS WORLD FAIR 1958 PRISTINE 40MM SUPERCOMPRESSOR AUTOEnicar
Sherpa For Brussels World's Fair
For auction is a truly amazing Enicar Sherpa Dive first run for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. In the 1950's, SCUBA diving was relatively new and Swiss watch manufacturers were adding dive watches to their repertoire. Enicar decided to introduce their Sherpa 600 Seapearl diver at Expo 58. This model has "Bruxelles 58" on the dial, as well as the fair's star logo. The dial has wider wedge markers to distinguish it from regular production models. The minute and hour hands have much wider lume. This watch is truly a time capsule, with an unpolished perfect case, a stunning gloss black dial and a mint condition bezel. The perfect 20mm Rally Tropic strap is original, as well, In watch collecting, we sometimes encounter something truly rare and special. This first run Enicar for the Brussels World's Fair is just such a piece. This is one of the true great watches to ever come out of EPSA; it was the progenitor of many important sports watches and is a real milestone in the history of watches.
