Even if many of the Enicar models is associated with diving and other extreme adventure sports the brand has also been a big part of the racing culture. Already back in 1958 Enicar was marketing their watches to be watches for racers. Then, with the driver Stirling Moss in the frontier during the 1960s Enicar introduces a Sherpa Graph which was based on a Valjoux 72-movement. Stirig Moss expressed his feelings towards the new Enicar model with the words: “The Enicar Sherpa is definitely the watch I always wanted!” About this time another racing driver enters the Enicar saga; Gerhard Mitter.
Gerhard Mitter was born in august 1935 in Schönlinde in the former Czechoslovakia but his family soon moved and re-rooted in Germany. In his teens Mitter started to race with motorbikes and became very successful. After five years he took up Formel junior-racing in which he soon became the most successful racer in Germany with 40 wins and several records. Even more remarkable was that this highly reputable driver also was a co-constructor and had worked to build up many of the cars he drove.
