Enicar is a brand that remains somewhat under the radar to a large segment of watch collectors (let alone the non-horologically inclined). At the same time prices have rocketed in the last few years as enthusiasts in the know and loyal Enicar fans scoop up various desirable pieces.
The appeal is quickly clear when one studies Enicar, with a rich history involving Formula 1 racing, Everest expeditions, and watches built with unique in-house movements and spectacular vintage styling. One particularly fascinating model (and one of our favourites) is the Sherpa Jet, a two crown pilot watch with a brilliant inner rotating bezel and colourful GMT hand.
As more discover Enicar's bountiful offerings of vintage goodness, expect these watches to continue to rise in price and prominence.
