Video: Jeff Kingston Explains the Tuning Process of a Breguet Minute Repeater

Since 2003, Breguet has instituted four major expansions of its Vallée de Joux workshops. In this exclusive video, we take our cameras to the work benches where Breguet watchmakers produce the brand’s exceptional minute repeaters. Minute repeaters are particularly demanding to assemble, as they call upon not only supreme watchmaking skills but artistic talent to tune the sound of the chimes. We will watch key steps in the tuning process for one of Breguet’s minute repeaters, including the delicate adjustments to the sounding gongs — which, incidentally, were also invented by brand founder Abraham-Louis Breguet.

    Excellent film, but IBG definitely needs to change the intro & exit music. Doesn’t match the subject matter, though it does sound a bit like the theme song from the old Gong Show :-)
