Project Description

Enicar Sherpa Guide 600 £SOLD

Wow! Look at the worn bezel on that Enicar, Sherpa Guide 600 MkII, I hear you shout.

Yes, it is worn smooth around its bezel edge, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. Nothing shouts Originality, like a well-worn bezel.

However, once you get past looking at that bezel, you soon realise, the watch is in super condition overall; the hands, the face, the case and although battered, a working “double” bezel. What’s not to like!

This is an MKII version, so no longer has the crescent moon 24h hand, instead, it sports a thin 24-hour hand, tipped in yellow. The baton hands, with lume cut into their ends, are complemented by another MKII feature, a second hand with a round lollipop dot.

Looking at the inner rotating 24h bezel, adjusted using the top crown, it is the rarer Black and White version, although it has a yellowing patina. Black and Yellow inner bezels are far more common.

The “T-Swiss” dial is in great condition with minimal foxing. The Tritium rectangular index markers and Tritium dots at 6, 9 and 12 are all intact. However, they have lost the will to glow, long ago. The date wheel is the correct “Red on White” too.

Both crowns are original, both having a hashed background to the Enicar Pearl logo.

The early Mark II Sherpa Guide 600 had a Sea Pearl oyster back engraved 146/001 referring to the AR1146 movement. Later models (and this one is), feature a fluted Enicar Sherpa 600 case back engraved 148.35.01.

Finally, this is another watch previously owned by our Watch Maker, so the Enicar 1146 movement is ticking away as it should, having been serviced in August 2020.

There you have it – a beaten up bezel, but a beautiful watch!
