The one that came out of left field

A revival of the awesome Enicar watches of the '60s. Even Ed Sheeran owns one.   (the brandname Enicar is now owned by a chinese company that only do fashion stuff) 

But the real Sherpa legacy is brought back to life by Sherpa Watches.  A true passion project from a german engineer that didn't cut any corners in bring back this piece down the most small details. Swiss made. A true super compressor , rated to 200m,  EPSA case, DLC coated . Kind of the perfect toolwatch that is sure to be a conversation starter.. now in my watchbox :)

Looks great. Congrats!

Cool!  I kind of wish they'd kept the old logo, though.

might have been part of what actually was "sold" off 

The new company "Sherpa Watches" doesn't have anything to do with the the Chinese that own the name "Enecar" that exists today. Not sure about the legal stuff but parts have all been recreated down to details based on patent free blueprints from the swiss archives ..

i still need to get to the bottom of all that info too :)

Looks sooo sick. Vintage Enicar Sherpa have been a grail of mine for awhile, but I just can not stand the fact I would not actually use it for its intended purpose. Please let us know how you like it! Btw love the channel and hope to see more content from you

thanks man.. well this wasn't a blind buy.. I had handled the watches before and I'm really impressed with the build quality . it IS and feels like a premium watch, without the vintage fragility.

I hope to be doing a video about this one soon!

Great dial! Look forward to seeing your photos as it gets more wrist time

Hell yes.

Good to see that design back again. Striking watch.

Hi Man thanks for the reply, my focus isn't so much on the movement.. yet Idk what they did but if you set those hands it feels like a sellita from a different planet. (in a good way) The mvmt wasn't the selling argument for me tbh,  i rotate watches a lot and being certified  or that extra second isn't what keeps me awake.

It's not just a cheap look alike they created, they re-introduces bayonet-compressor technology that was hidden for 60+ years and brings this technique to an even higher level using the best in the market insights and materials. They manufactured the  case and crown .  The vintage models still sell at high prices, and for me personally I feel more secure in that case  with something newer & more robust ( i haven't really dipped into vintage collecting yet)

I think the only thing that might be missing to "justify" this price to the masses is (advertorial) hype that surround some other brands/watches where ppl don't even think twice about spending that much. My 2 cents. But I understand your view on it too.
