Ernest Borel “Cocktail Clearview” men's Retro Modern design wristwatch in yellow rolled gold plate, circa 1960.
Ernest Borel introduced its cocktail watch in the 1950s in both ladies' and men's models. Most featured a mesmerizing rotating dial disk, and this one also has cut-out numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9. This example is in excellent condition with only a few specks of brassing. This model has a clearview caseback with a plastic crystal so the movement can be viewed. Underside of lugs show wear. The case measures 41mm long and 32mm wide. Original dials are very good. Acrylic crystals are excellent. This watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Ernest Borel manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
