LeBeau-Courally is launching its first watch collection in the UK.
The Belgian luxury goods house can trace its history back to 1865, when it started life as a specialist in bespoke collectors’ hunting arms with unique engravings.
To this day, everything the company makes has to be fully handmade in Lebeau-Courally’s in-house ateliers.
In 2015, the maison purchased the IMH manufacture d’horlogerie in Le Locle early 2015, and began working towards the production of exclusive timepieces with a unique aesthetic language and high end complications.
The Lebeau-Courally manufacture in Le Locle unites a team of watchmaking experts with traditional skills including enamelling by hand and engraving.
Its first watch, revealed as a prototype in March 2015, was the Phase de Lune, which then went into production using the LC0040 movement.
The production version of the 2016 Phase de Lune was launched earlier this year at Baselworld and more recently presented at SalonQP in London, signalling an intention to find partners in the UK.
Prices range from CHF 12,600 for a steel edition to CHF 35,100 for the piece in white gold.
A distinctive element of the design is the Lebeau-Courally’s traditional clé de fusil, referring to the adorned lock on its hand crafted hunting arms, which can also be found on the Phase de Lune’s watch case at 8 o’ clock.
