    Minute repeater

    Minute repeater

    The minute repeater chimes out the time in hours, quarters and minutes. The highly complex strike train is operated by an eye-catching repeating slide and chimes out the time in crystal-clear tones: the hours on the lower-pitched of the two gongs, followed by a double strike on both gongs for the quarters and finally a single strike on the higher-pitched gong for the minutes. Each gong is individually handmade and then carefully tuned for pitch and tonal purity. The all-or-nothing-piece slide, as it is known, ensures that the mechanism will never chime out an incomplete – and thus incorrect – series of acoustic tones even if the repeating slide is released too early.
