As early as the 1940s, Ernest Borel remarkably received chronometer certificates for a large amount of watches, soon becoming the second largest manufacturer of chronometers. Between 1945 and 1958, 4,172 timepieces obtained the “bulletin de marche” issued by the Swiss offices for the official verification of watch timing. A testament to this continuity, Ernest Borel was rewarded by becoming one of the top brands to receive COSC certification in 2009.
Today, the Officially Certified Braque Chronometer inherits the essence of the Braque Collection. In addition, each timepiece is specifically recognized via the official seal of the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), thus being the perfect combination of precision and art.
The new Ernest Borel collection is inspired by the cubist art movement and its initiator, the artist Georges Braque. This watch is proposed with a COSC Day-date self winding movement to pair with its design. The warm radiance of light suffusing the two tones case, hour-markers and bracelet instills this timepiece with a subtle blend of classicism and creativity. The guilloche motif in the dial centre creates a sense of space and depth, while the diamond hour-markers show a more impressionist vision. A cleverly executed interpretation of the geometry of shapes for a timepiece that is anything but ordinary. This model comes in 2 execution, stainless steel and two tones.
Each Braque Chronometer is accompanied by an individual certificate, indicating the serial number of the watch and attesting the COSC certification.
