ON RE­PEAT

Prestige (Singapore) - - AGENDA -

The prod­uct of four years of ex­ten­sive re­search and development, the Ra­diomir 1940 Minute Re­peater Carillon Tour­bil­lon GMT from Of­ficine Pan­erai is a work of horo­log­i­cal art. Fit­ted with three ham­mers in­stead of two, the red gold time­piece’s re­peater mech­a­nism al­lows for the com­bi­na­tion of three dif­fer­ent chimes (hence cre­at­ing a melody when ac­ti­vated). It sounds the hours, 10 min­utes (rather than the more com­mon quar­ter hours) and min­utes. In­ter­est­ingly, the re­peater func­tion can be ac­ti­vated for both the lo­cal time and se­cond time zone, which is in­di­cated via a cen­tral hand on the dial and a day and night in­di­ca­tor at three o’clock. The ticker’s skele­tonised P.2005/MR cal­i­bre also comes armed with a tour­bil­lon that makes one ro­ta­tion ev­ery 30 sec­onds, ef­fec­tively com­pen­sat­ing for any grav­i­ta­tional changes and in­creas­ing time­keep­ing ac­cu­racy.
