Early LeRoy Stemwind Repeater
Very fine and very rare slim French 18K gold early stemwind quarter repeater
by Le Roy & Fils circa 1845.
Substantial engine turned case (edge wear) with repeat slide in the band.
First quality 32 jewel movement winding in only one direction. With wolf's
tooth winding and counterpoised lever. White enamel dial ( 1 clean hairline) with
blued steel Breguet hands.
This is a rare example of an early first quality stemwind repeater by one of the most
famous of makers.
When activated, this watch chimes the time using different bright chime tones to
designate the hours and quarter hours.

NOTE: The small circles or shadows in some of our photos
are reflections of the camera lens. Since this watch is much smaller than in the
enlarged photos, a tiny blemish or imperfection that you could not see when looking
at the actual watch can appear very large in the photos.
