Historical Significance: The world famous Scottish Formula 1 racer Jim Clark famously wore an Enicar Sherpa Graph 300 as did his counterpart Stirling Moss. Jim won two F1 world GP championships and 25 grand prix races, more than anyone else at the time. He is also the only racer in history to have won both the F1 championship and the Indy 500 in the same year. This accomplished farmer / racer is argued to be the best of his time and certainly one of the all time great racers ever. The movement of this chronograph, the valjoux 72 is also shared with the Paul Newman Daytona.
