Also referred to as the “Jim Clark”, the Enicar Sherpa Graph 300 was made famous by renowned British Formula 1 driver Jim Clark OBE, who was repeatedly photographed wearing the reference.

These chronograph watches were intended as technical instruments and were used as such in a range of specialised endeavours.
