Own a watch from the brand favored by such notable figures as Napoleon, Winston Churchill, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Leroy watches like this Marine Automatic Deck Chronometer in 18K Rose Gold are a rare collaboration between French and Swiss designers. Look closely at the dial; it reveals a stunning Guilloche pattern of intersecting and overlapping spirals that highlight one of the longest watch production processes in the industry.
This piece is part of the same collection provided to the French Navy beginning in 1835 and only ending in the late 1980s. The face features a central chronograph which indicates hours, minutes, and seconds – complete with 30 minute and 12 hour counters and a simple date mechanism.
Leroy has an annual production of 100-150 pieces. Very small and exclusive brand, and each piece is crafted to perfection
using the best materials and techniques. Finishing is superb and comparable to the very best of the independent watch houses such as Laurent Ferrier, Phillippe Dufour, Guy Ellia, Christophe Claret, FP Journe.
