Comparing Leroy and Some of the Top Names in Watchmaking – Part One

Exceptional watchmaker Leroy is one of the most notable, incredible houses of horology craftsmanship in the industry. Its creations have been admired by generations of luxury watch collectors.

Beyond its own collector following, Leroy is distinguished among some of the very top names in watchmaking. Over the next several weeks, we plan to feature Leroy as a brand and watchmaker alongside some of these other marvelous brands in the luxury timepiece industry.

Laurent Ferrier
Like Leroy, Laurent Ferrier Geneve has an extreme commitment to practicing excellence in their craft of traditional watchmaking. But although the beauty, precision, and simplicity of Laurent Ferrier watches is exceptional, their workmanship does not carry the centuries of timepiece craftsmanship that Leroy has right to boast. This rich experience in traditional watchmaking, coupled with decades of precise innovation set Leroy apart in the world of timepiece design and craftsmanship.

Greubel Forsey 
There is no question that watchmaker Greubel Forsey has a special flair for innovation. They made their debut as a brand with their unique Double Tourbillon 30° – an astounding piece of workmanship and art, not to mention technical progress for the future of luxury timepieces. In addition to leading the world in the design and quality of tourbillon chronometry, Leroy has decades of experience crafting and innovating their workmanship on tourbillon chronometry.

F.P. Journe
From 1982, when F.P. Journe released its first pocket watch with tourbillon, to 2000, when the brand released their Sonnerie Souveraine line, they have been making their mark in the esteemed company of luxury timepieces. While the more than 30 years of F.P. Journe history provides an excellent foundation for watchmaking prowess, Leroy’s 200-plus years of experience and learned focus in craft and workmanship far surpass this younger house of horology.

Experience is a key to what sets a watchmaker apart in the world of horology, and almost none can surpass the more than 200 years of experience that goes into Leroy’s watchmaking skill. Browse our growing selection of exceptional Leroy timepieces.
