Case, movement, crown(s), and dial signed


With its 40 mm case and twin crown layout, the Sherpa Super jet is the big brother to the 36 mm Sherpa Jet. This, like the latter, features a bi-directional inner GMT bezel, which rotates using the upper of the two crowns (the lower, similarly signed crown sets the time and provides initial winding if required)

Both the dial and bezel are in extraordinarily well preserved condition, with little to no imperfections to remark of - just a superbly warm patina acquired over its 60 odd year life - the white of the GMT has mellowed to a generous creamy tone, the black still with ample depth

The strong and thick lugs retain their shape, framing the 20 mm lug gap nicely - and to top it off, the watch comes with its original signed Enicar beads of rice bracelet

"Rare" is thrown around a lot in the watch community, and whilst it is not impossible to find examples of the Sherpa Super Jet, we wager a bet that it is a very event indeed to find such a fine example, bracelet included - don't miss out on this "rare" opportunity
