Ernest Borel


"Cocktail Watch"






"Strobing" "Mystery Dial"


Like the psychedelic "Strobing" posters above, this timepiece was born in the 1960's.


The Ernest Borel Cocktail Watch featured a Mystery Dial disc that as it turned, it gave the illusion of having  a pulsing, or  "strobing" effect like the famous art-work & posters of the sixties. These are becoming increasingly difficult to find in all original condition that are in great cosmetic condition as well as great mechanical condition!!



100% All Original  & 4 time Borel Factory Signed & Hallmarked (2 x on dial, on movement, and on the crown)


Excellent condition 18 Karat Yellow Rolled Gold factory Square "Tank Style" case with all high polished case edges, sides & lugs. The top of the case features soft fine Florentine Matte finish with a high polished and black enamel inlaid bezel. The case back features a display back showing the high grade Swiss movement. The case is 26.55mm wide (not counting the stem or Bulova Hallmarked crown) by 35.75mm Lug to Lug. This is a great "unisex" timepiece that could be worn by either men or women.


This Classic vintage watch is powered by its All Original, Ernest Borel Hallmarked, Caliber 401, High Grade, 17 Jewel, Swiss built manual winding movement.


100% all original MINT condition Strobing Mystery Dial with both Borel AND Cocktail patented hallmarks.


This Classic timepiece currently has an original proper period piece Hadley yellow Gold Filled dress mesh bracelet, AND, a new black Crocodile grain strap.
