Enjoy L.Leroy Osmior Skeleton Tourbillon Regulator Watch

Dec 06, 2011
The house of L.Leroy delivers its new Osmior Skeleton Tourbillon Regulator mens watch. The name Osmior stems from that of an old metal alloy, which consists mostly of gold. It was a natural choice for the brands traditional collection since this material was regularly used by its craftsmen for manufacturing of cases for highly complicated watches.

The new L.Leroy watch is delivered in a 41mm 18-carat pink gold case. Its thickness is 10.50 mm. The front side of the case is protected by a sapphire crystal, inlaid with double-sided scratch-resistant multi-layered glare-proofed coating. The sapphire glass is also used for its engraved open back part. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 50 meters.

The new L.Leroy Osmior Skeleton Tourbillon Regulator watch shows off a pink gold dial with laser openwork, bevelled by hand. It ensures hours, minutes and seconds. The basic functions are joined by tourbillon and regulator complications.

The model is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, developed for L.Leroy by its sister company MHVJ in la Vallee de Joux. It was entirely cut and skeletonized by hand by Christophe Shaffo at La Brevine, Switzerland. The caliber was assembled, finished and regulated by Les Ateliers L.Leroy SAS in Besancon, France.

Paved with 23 jewels, the mechanism runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a 53-hour power reserve. The movement incorporates an open-work central oscillating weight in 22 carat gold as well as a flying tourbillon.

The tourbillon carriage is cut out and bevelled by hand. It is also embossed with the L.Leroy double L logo. The movement is officially certified as a chronometer by Besancon National Observatory and therefore bears a La Tete de Vipere (snakes head) mark.

The new L.Leroy watch is coupled with a genuine hand-sewn alligator leather strap. It joins to an 18-carat pink gold buckle. The model is offered in a limited edition of 7 individually numbered pieces.
