Video: Sound-Checking the Gongs in a Breguet Minute Repeater

Since 2003, Breguet has instituted four major expansions of its Vallée de Joux workshops. In its newest wing, Breguet has organized its watchmakers into specialty groups, including one dedicated solely to 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. This video explains what watchmakers have to do to get perfect-sounding chimes for the brand’s minute repeaters.
