Minute repeater

  • Ben 

A minute repeater is an exquisite and complex complication found in select high-end watches. With the activation of a discreet mechanism, the minute repeater chimes the time on demand by striking tiny hammers against finely tuned gongs. These audible tones indicate the hours, quarter hours, and minutes, allowing the wearer to tell the time by sound alone. Minute repeater watches exemplify the highest level of craftsmanship, combining mechanical ingenuity with auditory beauty, resulting in an extraordinary and enchanting horological experience.
