The movement is intricately hand engraved  – the dial plate and every barrel, pillar, the platform escapement and even the hammers are engraved.

The signed white enamel balloon dial is set into en engraved gilt mask. The main dial has Roman and Arabic numerals, above subsidiary day, alarm and calendar dials, and a rolling moon phase to the centre.

The clock has an eight day striking movement, with push button hour repeat.  The clock is housed in its original leather travel case bearing a plaque for Asprey, London. Sold with its gilt engraved key.

La Vallée’s roots are in Venice. The founder of the company was apprenticed to a workshop repairing clocks for noble Venetian families. He later moved to Como and in 1974 established an enterprise restoring and making antique-style clocks. La Vallée’s efforts were thus redirected to the creation of traditional luxury clocks, crafted from the finest materials. Today, the company focuses exclusively on the design and manufacture of bespoke timepieces suitable for elite collectors or galleries.
