Ar mai fi multe de adaugat despre ceasurile Ernest Borel.
O sa mai adaug informatii in urmatoarele zile/ saptamani.
Cum insa in ultima perioada m-am axat pe ceasurile cu regulator Incastar de la Ernest Borel, o sa fac o prezentare detaliata a acestora, dar si a altor ceasuri Ernest Borel aflate in colectia personala.
… deci … articol in lucru!
Inca nu am avut ragazul necesar documentarii si scrierii articolului despre “Incastar”, dar citind un articol interesant (Philadelphia Exhibition 1876, SWITZERLAND. Report Presented To The Federal High Council on The Horology Industry, de E Favre-Perret http://www.watkinsr.id.au/Favre.pdf) am descoperit o referinta interesanta Borel –> Patek:
“Our colleague, Professor Watson, did not remember to which watches the bulletins of rate of which he took note applied, and we must raise this doubt: which of the following watches were used by him as points of comparison in his table II, thus:
H-L Matile, n° 10,607, is a repeater watch, sounding the hours, quarters and minutes, independent seconds, chronograph, indicating the phases of the moon, the months and the days.
H-L Matile, n° 10,661, is a watch with independent seconds, fifth of second, chronograph with two split seconds hands.
Jacot brothers, n° 199,315, is a chronograph with minute and second counters.
Jacot brothers, n° 199,310, is a chronograph with two split seconds hands.
Jacot brothers, n° 199,312, is a 5 minute and quarter repeater.
Messrs Borel & Courvoisier count among them several chronographs and complicated watches.
Messrs Ekegren and Patek, Philippe & Co, of Geneva, are in the same class.”
