Dear CT readers,
I have this Enicar Sherpa Guide 600 GMT for sale. No other reason for selling than making space in the watchbox to fund other pieces.
I will shamelessly pillage The 'Dink and steal their descrption:
The Enicar Sherpa Guide represents a quintessential tool watch, with its large compressor case and unusual world-timer display. The Enicar Sherpa Guide is much more than a GMT watch; calling it a world-timer would be more accurate. It does have a GMT hand and a 24-hour inner rotating bezel but both are complemented by an external rotating bezel with a red ring that allows its wearer to select the city of reference. As such, all timezones can be tracked at a glance. Furthermore, the screw-back waterproof case offers reassurance for future travels, rain or shine.
It's a watch that has a LOT of presence, it's big, it's heavy, and the association red/grey/black is pretty cool if you ask me. The black Bezel is nicely ghosting, but everything is still readable. The night/day black/white inner bezel provides some nice contrast to the set, while the slate grey dial with the applied Saturn logo is the highlight of the watch!
This automatic watch was purchased from Indonesia 2years ago on this very forum, and, frankly, it was a total wreck... I had my watchmaking friend who works for one of the Holy Trinity houses spend a lot of spare time on it (no receipt for reasons you can imagine), and now it runs solid, litterally within a dozen seconds a day now. I have not had watertightness done however, just to be clear!
Both bezels turn very freely, which is something you need to watch out if you truly need the GMT function. It is sold with a signed BoR bracelet which has been heavily used and has a couple of broken links which are furtunately hidden in the clasp. It can comfortably accomodate wrists up to 17.5cm, but not much more. It is incredibly confortable, thanks to the slop in pretty much every part of its assembly. On an oyster strap, this would be considered stretch, but here it's a comfort feature :D The brown JPM for DB strap is not part of the sale.
Case size: 43mm
Crystal: Plexi, it has some scratches and some "surface cracks" - not sure how to describe them otherwise.
Crowns: I believe original, both signed
Lug width: 22mm
I am asking 990EUR including shipping from Switzerland to Western Europe, paid by wire, net to me (more on that last point below). If you are in other parts of the world, let's talk. If you are in the Lemanic area, then I’d be glad to give you a discount, meet you in person, hand it over to you, and the beer is on me. I can also meet you at GVA airport. I am primarily looking for cash, no trades atm please.
I have mostly cell phone pics, please let me know if you need other pics and I will do my best to fulfill your requirements:
I only sell to bring some new pieces (actually, one big one...) to my collection. I am not motivated by profit and so I have no reason to embellish or over describe, but I am not bothered by an uplift. I have (mostly) bought and sold (a few - actually, one… and one trade too!) watches on the various vintage boards (mostly OF). I am not a watch dealer, I make my money elsewhere, watches are my pleasure, but I’m not a philanthropist either. I am not in the offended by offers, as long as you aren't desperetely lowballing me.
I have done my best to provide as much info as I could. I will not take returns for this watch unless you consider it is grossly misrepresented and you are willing to have a discussion about it all, openly, on omegaforums, i.e. not by PM but into the limelight, as I value my fellow OF members opinions. I am opinionated, but not stubborn :)
Payment by Bank Transfer only. Paypal are a bunch of thieves. I am asking for a "net to me" amount not because I can't man up, but because depending on where the thing ships to and where payment is made from, the extras to handle this all can amount to a chunky amount of cash, which, compared to the value of this piece, can be ridiculously significant. Were I selling a $150K daytona, I wouldn't bother, but on a ~1KEUR watch, it does make a difference. Face to face delivery is always welcome in the Lemanic area ater payment, and I will discount accordingly :)
Thank you CT for the space! :)
