This rings especially true for the minute repeater, which symbolizes minimalist appearance at its finest. However, from a technical standpoint, this grand complication is deemed extremely demanding, for it doesn’t merely indicate time but adds an acoustic dimension, chiming the hours, quarters, and minutes when desired.

In the conception of a minute repeater, the work of an acoustician is also essential. They search for the perfect sound, as the mechanism is added to the watch.

In a soundproof chamber specially set up for this acoustic time indication, the specialist first seeks the resonance frequency of each sound.
