A watch that chimes the time when a slide or button on the watch case is pushed. One type of repeater, called a minute repeater, can chime the time to the latest minute. It has two sounding springs that produce chiming sounds corresponding to, in order, the hour, quarter-hour and minute. Other types of repeaters will chime the time only to the latest quarter-hour, 1/8-hour (7 1/2-minute), or 5 minutes.
