DETAILS

The Enicar Sherpa Graph 300 is well known for being worn by racing driver Jim Clark who sported a few different examples over the years. This example is the Mark III from the 1960s and remains in excellent original condition. The large stainless steel case measures 40mm with EPSA compressor bajonet back featuring the Sherpa 300 pearl logo embossed. The case has some scratches and does not show signs of recent polishing. The case back has some light wear however importantly the serial number (94xxx) and reference number (7072-02-01) are still visible. The original black dial with contrasting grey registers is in excellent condition with very small signs of age. The original tritium luminous shows a nice patina and matches with the original “paddle” type hands. It also features the original red lollipop chronograph hand and metallic grey tachymetre inner bezel. The serial number 94xxx fits into the known batch for the Mark III. This example has the original large chronograph pushers and original Enicar anti-slip crown. The original Valjoux 72 manual wind movement signed Enicar is clean and is in very good working order. These quality movement were shared by a number of watch companies at the time, most notably Rolex for the Cosmograph Daytona.

Overall this is an excellent example of a sought after model by collectors due to its design, large case, quality movement and motor racing history.
