Description

Exceptional minute-repeating pocket watch produced by LEROY & FILS (paris).

The overall condition of this remarkable timepiece is nothing short of extraordinary. It’s truly captivating to witness a piece of such museum-worthy caliber that has withstood the test of time so well.

The pristine white enamel dial, adorned with Roman hour numerals and Arabic minute markers, remains untouched by any form of damage. Gilded ‘Fleur de lys’ hands grace the dial, complemented by a blued steel decentralized seconds hand.

The robust case boasts three substantial 18K yellow gold lids, each intricately engraved. The front lid showcases an elegant monogram, while the inside dust cover reads the Leroy signature, their workshop address, and a unique serial number.

The impeccably finished movement showcases wolf tooth winding gears, meticulously adjusted chatons, and a coveted Guillaume balance wheel. Both the movement and the minute-repeating function perform flawlessly.
