La Répétition

At the time it was invented, the major feature of this complication was that you didn’t need to light a candle to see the time. On request, this exceptional repeater mechanism chimed the hours and five minutes, offering a musical rendition of time. In a limited series, Claude Meylan has perpetuated this enchanting sound in a musical wristwatch, a magic and beauty that, in earlier times, was only offered by a pocket-watch. With the beauty of its movement, its technical precision, the quality of its striking-mechanism and its discreet case, this watch is an expression of true prowess.
