Kern Aarau Suisse "Bolar Bol" 55mm f/2.2 Alpa reflex prototype :

Unique !!! This lens was found in Alpa factory stock in Swiss. If i refer to my books, Kern serial numbers 5000 was made in 1925. So we can suppose this lens was made around 1920, a history piece originally made for cine 35mm cameras. This one is very particular because it was adapted with an Alpa reflex brass mount. Surely to make tests before production. This lens surely has been in famous Bolsky hands !!! No chance to see an other like this one.

External = A :   Coorect condition for a hundred years cine lens. Please look carefully at pictures.

Mecanic = A : Iris is perfectly working. Focus is not operating because it is not achieved.

Optic = B+ : Good condition, a little cleaning and it will be excellent. There two spots on front element (photos) totally invisible on my samples (Sony A7R IV). A very little fog on bright condition, no fungus. You will find samples on my professionnal facebook "Som Berthiot".
