Catalogue Note

This exceptional piece is first musical wristwatch to chime in passing and on demand, it features a 20-tooth comb and plays two tunes, Shubert's “Serenade” and Tchaikovsky's “The Lake of Swans”.
It is inspired by the 18th century models produced by Antoine Favre while using today's most cutting-edge technologies. This micro mechanical marvel comprises 454 parts, two barrels (one devoted to timing precision and the other to the musical complication). As its name implies, with each passing hour or at the wearer's request, it plays music.
The mechanism is driven by a regulator that is visible through an aperture in the dial. This exceptional timepiece is truly one of a kind.
