Other: This ultra-rare Enicar Sherpa World Time Automatic watch is truly a collector's dream!

As you can see, the original sticker is still in tact on the caseback. Keep in mind that this watch is now 60 years old... The 36mm stainless steel case wears incredibly well on the wrist and its vibrant rotating bezel allows the wearer to determine the current time in other major world cities at a quick glance (a useful feature for pilots and world-travelers alike). If you fancy rare and interesting pieces in only the best condition, this Enicar would make a perfect addition to any world-class collection.
