Breguet: Sound check of the gongs in a minute repeater

Since 2003, Breguet has had four major expansions of its Vallee de Joux workshops. In its newest wing, Breguet has organized its watchmakers into specialty groups, including one dedicated to minute repeaters.


Minute repeaters are particulary demanding to assemble as they call upon not only supreme watchmaking skills but also artistic talent to tune the sound. This video explains what watchmakers have to do to get the perfect-sounding minute repeaters.

  • A truly beautiful watch. The following is brief example of a Breguet repeater in fiction.

    Patrick O’Brian wrote a wonderful series of novels about a British naval officer, Capt. Aubrey, and his friend, Dr. Maturin, naval surgeon and intelligence agent. The novels take place during the Napoleonic Wars Dr. Maturin carries a Breguet repeater. And he is as dangerous as James Bond wearing a Rolex or an Omega.
    Capt. Aubrey always carried two Arnold chronometers along with the standard British issue.
    If any of you enjoy Naval intrigue and battles O’Brian is a great story teller.
