HAM­MER TIME

Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time - - Spotlight -

This year, Pan­erai launches its most com­pli­cated time­piece yet, the 1940 Minute Re­peater Car­il­lon Tour­bil­lon GMT PAM600. A mouth­ful by name, the time­piece is equally com­plex: the minute re­peater func­tion has been cal­i­brated to em­u­late the melody of a bell, only pos­si­ble by adding an ad­di­tional ham­mer and gong to the con­ven­tional twoham­mer and two-gong con­struc­tion. Un­like the more con­ven­tional minute re­peater, this one chimes the tens in­stead of the quar­ters. More­over, by sim­ply push­ing the crown, you can choose whether the time­piece chimes the home time or lo­cal time (de­noted by an in­di­ca­tor at 3 o’clock). Pan­erai has also added a tour­bil­lon to the mix and has skele­tonised the en­tire move­ment.
