* Le Cheminant (meaning The Wanderer) was first established in 1847 at Wimpole Street, London by a John Le Cheminant who owned a jewellers shop at this address. At this time Le Cheminant was among several companies which supplied precision timepieces to the British Royal Navy. In 1909 and 1915 the Royal Navy bought chronometers that saw service on HMS Dido and HMS Titania respectively. The company was bought in 1957  and branches began appearing in cities such as Norwich, Leicester and Bristol. in 2007 the company was again bought and still operated in the manufacture and sale of watches albeit on a smaller scale. To date it is unsure if the company is still operating.

 

* This particular model can be dated to approximately the early 00s and features a golden dial with Arabic 12, 6 and 9 numerals with classic syringe shaped hands. The watch is powered by a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement visible through the glass case back and is housed within a polished, gold plated, 35mm case. The watch comes fitted to an attractive black leather strap.
