Ernest Borel 155th Anniversary Limited Skeleton Collection

Founded in Switzerland in 1856, Ernest Borel is celebrating this year its 155th anniversary. Always focusing on “romantic moments” and adhering to a philosophy of “pursuing constant perfection”, the brand has won numerous Swiss and International honors as far back as 1861; amongst others, a first prize in 1866 in the Neuchâtel Observatory chronometric competition, Switzerland’s most demanding test of timepiece products; the Certificate of Award in Philadelphia USA in 1876; the Gold medal in Paris France in 1878; the Grand Prix Award in Greece in 1937. Shortly before celebrating its centenary, two first prizes for wristwatch-chronometers were granted by the Neuchâtel Observatory.

In 2011, the brand is to launch the 155th Anniversary Limited Skeleton Collection to commemorate its achievements over the past 155 years and perpetuate them. This rare timepiece is assembled with a 2892 skeleton automatic movement, customized and delicately carved with Louis XIV decorations.
