Points of Mention

This watch is sold as "Watch Only" meaning it comes with no original Enicar box or original Enicar paperwork. The watch comes paired with a 20mm beads of rice stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp. The watch is from Circa. 1969 and is in worn original condition but is overall very good, as you can see from the photographs. The watch comes with our 12-Months Non-Waterproof Warranty.

The Watch

Here we have a 1969 Enicar Jet Graph GMT Chronograph 072-02-02 A with a 40mm stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with chamfered-edged flanks and tapered lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 49mm and a case thickness of 14mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. Down the right side, we have short piston-style chronograph pushers and a signed crown in the centre with deep knurling for extra grip. The rotating stainless steel bezel has a black and silver 24-hour scale with large numerals printed silver and black, and a red rotating ring with an arrow point at 12 o’clock surrounding the domed crystal above a striking reverse panda dial with its black dial and white slightly recessed registers. A minute track is precisely executed with applied baton indexes and inner Tritium pips marking the hours, at 3 o’clock a recessed white 30-minute register with a red hand, at 6 o’clock a white 12-hour register with a black hand and finally, at 9 o’clock the continuous second register with a black hand each marked with black printed numerals. Baton-style hands have an infill of Tritium, and a red and black pattern GMT hand are complemented by a red tapered chronograph hand. At 12 o’clock we have the applied Enicar motif with “Jet Graph” underneath completing this vintage chronograph. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the Enicar clamshell embossed in the centre, inside a manually wound Valjoux Cal. 724, 17 jewels, beating at a leisurely 18,000 beats per hour. The watch comes paired with a 20mm beads of rice stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp.


Personal Note

It's not every day you get the opportunity to stock a wonderful vintage Enicar, especially one as rare as this Jet Graph GMT! The condition of this one is top class and a real collector's piece, I don't think this will stick around on the website long as the interest in Enicar grows and rightfully so! Don't hesitate to book an appointment to come to see this gem in person.


The Brand

In 1914 founder Ariste Racine reversed his last name to create the brand “Enicar”. Their headquarters was in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland. Producing high-quality timepieces, his readable pocket watches were commonly used by European soldiers and railway crews during WWI. A new factory was built in 1930 in Bienne, Switzerland. In 1951 Enicar designed the Sherpa jet watches, which were supplied to the US Air Force during WWII. After the war, the Sherpa Collection entered the Asian market offering both advanced complications used in aviation and mountaineering. The 1956 Swiss Expedition conquered the summit of Mount Everest, equipped with Enicar chronometers. A member of the team, Ernst Reiss, praised the watch for its exceptional precision in extreme weather conditions. In 2014 Enicar celebrated its 100th anniversary.
