Enicar Seapearl 600
Early 1950’s stainless steel EPSA pre-supercompressor case diving watch from Enicar. A similar watch with Sherpa on the dial was used by a Swiss expedition in Everest while these Seapearl 600 were adopted by the US Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) after some tests involving big stars such as the Rolex Submariner 6538 and the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Milspec 1. Funny enough the Rolex didn’t pass the tests and the Enicar was much lighter, wearable and less expensive than the Blancpain. (Enicar 25$, Blancpain 50$, Rolex 90$ – please give me a time machine!)
The watch is in great conditions for its age. The glossy black dial is almost faultless which is quite rare with these watches. There are just some tiny signs of rust on the hands and the back case shows signs of wear. The watch comes with a vintage Swiss Tropic strap and… the true unicorn box!
