1 in stock

From the 1960’s, the time that Ernest Borel was a member of Synchron SA and issued many sport watches, a lovely 20ATM automatic steel diving watch that has been professionally restored and fully serviced by Localtime.

The stainless steel case has not been polished, houses an automatic 17j Synchron Cal. 55 with date at 6h and measures in at 36mm or 38.50mm including the synchron-logoed crown at 3h. The beautiful black tritium dial, new plexi, lume, applied indices, bezel and hands are stunning. It is wearing a new black Tropic-style silicone rubber strap that I also sell separately in my store. I have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots I took just for fun, to allow you to enjoy the lovely details of this fine timepiece.

As with all the watches we handle inhouse, the listed buy-it-now price includes a 6-month written warranty from the time of purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information you might need.

EXTRA! Check out our Localtime FKM Tropical straps. They are listed separately in the store under Accessories & Straps and you can also see them in the last photo here.

Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I mention what has been changed (if anything) on the watch and I include a written warranty with my listed price.

Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches (leather, canvas, suede, rubber) are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
