The watch brand for true royalties…
It is with great excitement and pride that we are offering this ultra-high-end small production boutique brand Leroy. Crafting watches only in precious metal, Leroy has a very Small annual production of 100 pieces a year, often sold directly to private clients through high-end dealers. The brand has never been discounted.
Similar to the brand Guy Ellia, Leroy has the DNA of Swiss high-watch-making and French tradition and design, with a final product that rivals the very very best of Swiss products.
From the very first glance, the Grand Osmoir is a stunner. In classic 18K yellow gold with solid silver guilloche dial, with the date at 12’O clock (timeless look since the first Leroy watch was made in the 1700s), it’s definitely the type of watch that will appeal to sophisticated connoisseur who like understated elegance and luxury. The versatile 38.5mm case, subtly different hand shapes, the guilloche pattern, the luxurious Indian ink numerals, all contribute to the overall appearance in harmony, while none stands out by itself.
Turning the watch over, it is really the movement that is a pleasure to examine for connoisseurs. The movement is among one of the most beautiful automatic movements ever made, with an amazing amount of of visual depth, with a background of perlage. Usually movements with this level of beautiful finishing tend to be manual-winding movements, as the creator does not want the rotor to obstruct the view. In this case, Leroy has employed the art of guilloche typically used on dial, on the gold rotor as well. It has done a fantastic job mixing dramatically exposed components and intricately guilloche’d rotor, to create a visual feast!
With the ultra small production at the high-end level, unfortunately most people can’t have the opportunity to even look at a Leroy watch, but I recommend everybody to seek it out, should the opportunity ever arise. They are, in my opinion, one of the finest watch manufactures on the planet, and could represent an incredibly strong brand in the years to come, not unlike A. Lange & Sohne, Guy Ellia, Laurent Ferrier, or FP Journe. In a world of watch snobs, Leroy is good as gold.
Leroy only makes watch in precious metal, never in steel.
