Leroy Mens Replica has a relevant space in the history of replica watchmaking and chronometry. Its origins date back to 1713 when master replica watchmaker Julien Le Roy joined the select circle of the Corporation des Horlogers parisiens. Marie-Antoinette, Proust, Matisse, Napoleon, Queen Victoria, Roosevelt, Chopin, Nobel, Bugatti, aviation pioneers Charles Lindbergh and Santos-Dumont are just some of the illustrious owners of a replica watch manufactured by Leroy. During its history, Leroy won a record 384 gold medals in chronometry competitions.
This year, at Baselworld 2015, Leroy offered a preview of two exciting new timepieces, the Chronomètre Observatoire and the Chronomètre à Tourbillon. There was lot of buzz about them and we are glad to finally share with our readers official pictures, technical specifications and pricing of the new Leroy Chronomètre Observatoire. The Chronomètre à Tourbillon will be covered as soon as we will receive full details.
The Chronomètre Observatoire is a timepiece that will be received with enthusiasm by collectors and connoisseurs which appreciate traditional Replica Watch In Discount watchmaking techniques.
The refined solid 925 silver dial is captivating with its precious hand-guilloché “barleycorn” motifs inspired by 19th century Leroy pocket replica watches and the applied Arabic numerals made of gold and delicately cabochonné (hand-polished and domed). The openworked steel hands are based on an exclusive Leroy design.
A small subdial at 6 o’clock shows the passing of the seconds by means of a “duplex” jump (thus named in tribute to Pierre Le Roy and his Duplex escapement) consisting in a short jump followed by a longer one.
At 9 o’clock, a lozenge-shaped aperture – small enough not to disturb the aesthetic balance of the dial – reveals the disc providing the 98-hour power-reserve indication. From 0 to 60 hours, the disc remains the same colour as the dial, while from 60 to 80 hours, it switches to white; beyond 80 hours it appears in red to signal that the autonomy is nearly at the end.
The dials come in a choice of five colours: opaline silver-toned, Leroy blue, Leroy champagne, rosé champagne and slate grey. The hour-markers match the colour of the gold case, while blue, rhodiumed or black gold hands may be selected according to the customer’s personal preferences.
The classic round case is available in two sizes (38 mm and 40 mm with a thickness of 9.7 mm and 10.50 mm respectively) and three versions: palladium-coated (non rhodiumed) white gold, red gold and a two-tone variation.
The case is composed of three parts: a satin-brushed bezel, a circular saint-brushed case middle and polished gadroons. The glareproofed sapphire crystal case-back enables the owner to admire the movement and its hand-crafted finishes.
The new Leroy Chronomètre Observatoire is equipped with the new-generation hand-wound L200 movement entirely developed and built in the Leroy Manufacture in Le Sentier which features an escapement with direct impulse on the balance (1 impulse/1 oscillation) that transmits constant energy to the regulating organ and ensures excellent rating precision.
