Répétition minutes Grande et Petite sonnerie

Philippe Dufour has produced an authentic masterpiece, unveiling the entire mechanism of his grand and small strike minute repeater. The bezel can even be lifted to admire the screws underneath adorned with hand-enamelled and hand-engraved indications. With a nod to modernity and clarity, the hands are of a different colour than the movement while the hour-circle, with its hour markers and Arabic numerals, has been applied directly to the crystal. The height of refinement, the exclusive buckle has been fashioned, piece by piece, by the watchmaker himself.
