Julien Le Roy was one of the most outstanding clock- and watchmakers of his time and certainly played a decisive part in establishing the leading role French clockmaking had in the 18th century. His inventions and improvements were of such extreme importance that most watchmakers adopted them promptly for their own pieces.
