Vintage Ernest Borel Ladies Bracelet Wrist Watch

Regular price $ 65.00 Sale

This vintage Ernest Borel ladies bracelet wrist watch is in relatively good condition with some minor tiny black dots on the band, which is due to some type of corrosion however, it is not very noticeable. The face measures 7/8 inches long by 7/16 inches wide. The dial is blue with silver tone accents. It is a little difficult to read because of the small dial size but it seems to run well. The bracelet is quite small measuring approximately 6-1/4 inches at the maximum. It would fit a more petite wrist. I have a relatively small wrist and it is tight on me. It is marked "plaque or g 10", which means 10 microns of gold plating and " Fond ACIEP Inoxydable" with the numbers "0101333-666580". I think the watch dates circa 1960s-70s.

In 1859 Jules Borel, a Swiss watch maker and his brother-in-law, Paul Courvoisier formed the Borel & Courvoisier watch company in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Borel watches have met the highest standards in watchmaking. Ernest Borel, the son of Jules, took over the company in 1894. Borel watches are still made today with the same craftsmanship and beauty.
