Breguet: Jeff Kingston Explains the Tuning Process of Minute Repeaters

Since 2003 Breguet has had four major expansions of its Vallee de Joux workshops. We will move our cameras to the adjacent work benches, those for minute repeaters. Minute repeaters are particularly demanding to assemble as they call upon not only supreme watchmaking skills but artistic talent to tune the sound. In the video we will watch key steps in the tuning process of one of Breguet’s minute repeaters including delicate adjustments to the sounding gongs, which incidentally were also invented by A.L. Breguet.
