The Enicar Sherpa Graph was first launched in 1960, and was adopted by the likes of both Stirling Moss and Jim Clark, within the Formula One racing community as their watch of choice. It was highly regarded both for its sporty looks, and reliable functionality.
Jim Clark in particular was known to own several different versions of this watch and for presenting them to his team to celebrate particular car racing milestones. Jim Clark won the Formula One world championships in 1963 and 1965. He died in a Formula 2 accident in 1968. By the time of his death, he had won 25 Grand Prix races, more than any other driver at the time.
The motor sports aspect, combined with the rising popularity of steel vintage chronographs, makes this very rare watch, a great potential investment piece and a fantastic watch on the wrist.
