Ernest Borel - founded 1859
Ernest Borel was a watch manufacturer founded   in 1856 in Neuchatel, Switzerland & run by the Borel family until 1975 when the 'Quartz crisis' affected the entire Swiss watchmaking industry & Ernest Borel was sold to the Synchron Group which consists of Cyma and Doxa.c

Ernest Borel won the 1866 Neuchatel observatory timing accuracy competition., the "Premium Award" in Philadelphia, USA, and the only "Precious Premium Award" given to the Swiss watch and clock industry in Paris that year. 

Ernest Borel competed with brands such as Enicar, Oris, Titoni and Sandoz. The prices of their watches ranged from the low hundreds of USD up to the mid thousands of USD.

The Ernest Borel corporate logo of a dancing couple in 19th-century [1800] dress was intended to reflect elegance, tradition and an inspiration of romance. However, this traditional logo was seen as being old-fashioned by the 20th century [1900].

TODAY relatives of Ernest Borel continue to effect the watch industry in positive ways. Jules Borel and Otto Frei-Borel Watch Parts Companies are two of the largest and oldest watch parts companies in the USA!
