About this item

The gilt-brass, so-called corniche case has bevelled glass panels on all sides so that the movement is entirely visible. It is surmounted by a shaped carrying handle. The white enamel dial has a Roman chapter ring, with Arabic five-minute and minute divisions. It is signed by the maker in the following manner:

LEROY.
A PARIS

The time is indicated by a pair of blued-steel Breguet hands. The spring-driven, eight-day movement is constructed between plates. It consists of going and striking trains, as well as alarm. The going train has English lever escapement with hairspring balance on a silvered platform. It can be adjusted by a regulator pin which can be seen through the window in the top and is accessible through the back door. The rack striking train indicates the hours fully and the quarter hours by a double stroke on two bells. In addition, there is a repeat button on the top front side, with which the hour and quarter-hour last struck can be repeated at all times. The back plate is inscribed in French to denote the various functions of the arbors.
