Five Minute Repeater striking on two gongsStriking mechanisms enjoyed their heyday in the 17th and 18th centuries. Over the past few years, this complication has been attracting more and more devotees. Simply pressing the push-piece triggers the striking mechanism on demand, sounding a low-pitched note for the hours and an alternating low and high-pitched note for five-minute intervals. This auditory subtlety is enhanced by visual aesthetics playing on the black of the guilloch? dial and strap, and the pink gold of the case and lugs.
