Ernest Borel 160th Anniversary Jules Borel Collection Limited Edition

To mark its 160th anniversary, Swiss watchmaker Ernest Borel uses the occasion of Baselworld 2016 to exclusively unveil a collection of 10 automatic movement watches for both men and women: The 160th ANNIVERSARY JULES BOREL COLLECTION.

Among its new creations, Ernest Borel has designed a new and essential timepiece in homage to the founder of the house, a true work of watchmaking art released in a limited edition, with 888 pieces available worldwide. An allusion to Chinese culture, the figure "8" is associated with happiness, wealth and eternity.

Supplied in a leather and wood presentation case, this prestigious model epitomises the very essence of a craft know-how that has been recognised since 1856. It meets every criterion of perfection established by Jules Borel, the  creator of superlative watches, a subtle balance between tradition and contemporary design, yet exuding a true timelessness.
Enhanced by the rose gold that surrounds the 12 diamonds on its dial and embellishes the hands and bezel, this piece of rare beauty features a Swiss automatic movement with complication enclosing the hour, minute, second, date, day and power reserve functions. The choice of a strap in brown alligator and folding clasp also adds true elegance to this limited edition.

Water-resistant to 50 metres, this commemorative watch is a synthesis between past and present and will delight lovers of beautiful objects, sensitive to the heritage and traditional values of Swiss watchmaking.
