Catalogue Note

Accompanied by a presentation case, outer card box and a Blancpain letter dated 14th May, 1987.

The minute repetition mechanism developed in early pocket watches is a fine and rare complication found in wristwatches. Using the slide the watch will chime, on demand, first the hours, then the quarters and finally the minutes. Two small polished steel hammers within the case resonate a high and low pitch chime to facilitate the audible time indication.
