WatchTime New York 2022 will be returning to Midtown Manhattan’s Gotham Hall from October 21-23 for its seventh annual iteration. Over the course of the weekend, a diverse selection of more than 30 participating watch brands will display their most sought-after releases from the past year, bringing together industry professionals, experts, and enthusiasts together under one roof for one of the biggest watch events of the year.
Joining the impressive lineup of brands at this year’s show is French watchmaker L. Leroy, which will give attendees the opportunity to see the new Tourbillon Régulateur Squelette Art Déco, live and in-person. The exquisite watch is a piece unique, with it serving as a nod to vintage Art Deco styles, all while joining together a tourbillon with the traditional art of skeletonization.
The case of the uncommon timepiece is crafted in 18K gold and measures 41mm in diameter with a thickness of 10.50mm. Channeling Art Deco influences, the sides of the case are superimposed, each engraved triangle utilizing a vintage-inspired angularity and working in tandem with the design of the skeletonized dial. A luxurious polishing its applied throughout, with thoughtful touches of grained finishing adding some contrast on the case sides.
On the dial, the aforementioned skeleton pattern channels more Art Deco influences, with it revealing the heart of the watch and showcasing L. Leroy’s incredible watchmaking abilities. At the 12 o’clock, the watch’s namesake tourbillon is at work within a cage, while below it the main time display is presented in the traditional regulator fashion. Notably, the time-indicating sub-dial is decorated with 12 numeric indices to measure the hour while the minutes are indicated by a long, blued central hand.
Powering the unique timepiece is the caliber LL512, an automatic winding tourbillon mechanism capable of a 52 hour power reserve. Due to the skeletonization of the dial, the movement serves as the main focal point of the watch, with it visible both on the face-side as well as via an exhibition caseback. On either side, the precise finishing of the movement shines clearly, with each component of the mechanism being hand carved, an art that is uncommonly practiced in the world of horology.
The L. Leroy Tourbillon Régulateur Squelette Art Déco is a piece unique, with pricing available upon inquiry.
