The melody, comprised of 4 notes in 5 arrangements, also known as the Cambridge Quarters, was written in 1793 and first used in the clock tower of St Mary the Great University Church, Cambridge, England. Of course after this, during the the 19th Century, their adoption for use in Big Ben at the Palace of Westminster gained the melody global renown.
It is clear then that to allow a watch of this scale the ability to chime so complex an arrangement would have required on the most skilled craftsmen in its construction.
