Enicar Sherpa Jet GMT Mk1 w/Military Provenance - *Unpolished*
- Unit price
This Enicar Sherpa Jet with mark 1 dial could potentially be one of the most exciting pieces of history we’ve shared to date. Not only does this early GMT remain in stunning condition, the Vietnam-era example, circa 1964, has ties to a U.S. pilot who owned it for much of his life.
As we can see from the beautiful clasp engraving, the pilot’s name sits under a set of naval aviator wings. While NAW can show a connection to the Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard, research from publicly available documentation shows that this particular Lieutenant Colonel served in the United States Marine Corps as a fighter pilot. He trained in Pensacola Florida, and served at duty stations all around the U.S., including Texas, Virginia, Kansas, Georgia and more. We also know he served at the Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, in Japan.
As watches were must-have pilot tools, it is only fitting that a GMT be used in operations nearly half the world away from Zulu time. The Enicar Sherpa Jet is not a piece we’ve seen much, if at all tying to military history, however and this is likely one of the few examples of that connection.
