Louis Bolle Nelson Automatic Multi-Function Stainless Steel/Silver White-Black Dial
This handsome Louis Bolle timepiece is built with incredible attention to
detail, to say the least. Radiating guilloche detail provides a bewitching
backdrop for the three inner circles to rest. Slowly ticking away below is a
beautiful flywheel that is as exposed as the incredible Pearlage finish upon the
mechanisms on the other side. The round, stainless steel case features not only
a dual satin and polished finish but also an overall texture that is incredibly
smooth to the touch. Holding this beauty in place on your wrist is a thick,
stainless steel bracelet with wide folding buckle... matching perfectly with
the 'Nelson's already regal appearance.

No ordinary rustic farming environment was the 1730 birthplace of Jean-Louis
Bolle. Farming was an ongoing enterprise to be sure, but within a stone's throw
of where Bolle had breathed his first breath, and no doubt furrowed his share of
fields, he also apprenticed for three years learning the art and craft he would
master ahead of his peers. These peers happened to be family in the form of
cousins and friends he'd known most of his life. At his own cost, and with tools
he provided himself, Bolle would excel in a place described as a mechanical
workshop, a place whose door he had run past without a thought hundreds of times
as a boy, the interior of which was described as a "laboratory of experimental
physics" where he worked as a young man.
From humble beginnings, success built upon success, from chambered
apprenticeship to international renown. Jean-Louis Bolle was a watchmaker of
honest craftsmanship. And so today, we proudly offer these timepieces inspired
by the spirit of this master watchmaker, an individual whose heart and soul grew
from the furrows and terraces of Alpine farmland. His was an influence that runs
humbly and quietly through all time. We now measure time with these pieces of
technology harvested from the seeds of his artistry.

** The Louis Bolle Comparative Retail Ticket Price range ($1655-$2050) comes from contrasting this watch with similar products offered by major watch retailers. In this instance, "similar" product means comparable watch design, functionality, finish, and accurate component fit. With regard to watch components in particular, similar products will have comparable quality dials, casings, crystals, bracelets and movements to the watch models in this collection. In the instance of the Louis Bolle watch in this listing, major watch retailers have offered similar product at Retail Ticket Prices ranging from $1655 to $2050.
The Watch Industry calculates MSRP/Compare at Value as a multiple of the watch's wholesale selling price, sometimes referred to as Keystone pricing. Underlying product design and component quality, distribution method, advertising strategies (both direct and cooperative), sales commissions and target gross margin combine to affect wholesale price calculations.
Watches marketed via traditional business models might require a double, triple, or even higher Keystone pricing strategy to reach the targeted ticket price. This would then allow for retailers to offer incremental discounts to stimulate sales without dramatically affecting a brand's retail price image.
The majority of our Louis Bolle watch auctions start at $1.00 with no reserves. The market force of competitive bidding sets your price. Our goal is for you to win an amazing Louis Bolle watch and for us to gain a satisfied and repeat auction participant. It's a win-win situation. Good luck.
