If I may express a dissonant voice

The watch is of course goergeous. But I would have prefered to see actual moving images, instead of still pictures, beautiful they may be.

And for a Grande Sonnerie Westminster, hearing the sound of the gongs would have been a great thrill.

Still, thank you Harry for the nice show !

Best regards,

I am sorry to say that what you wrote on the Watch Rap forum is not quite exact>

and there is another (or a few others rather) watches, automatic for the movement as well as the chimes, Grand and Petite Sonnerie Carillon Big Ben, Tourbillon, power reserve (both) PLUS perpetual calendar:

The Gerald Genta Grand Complication wrist watch.

Then there is of course the Piguet/Muller/Gerber watch, which is however not automatic and does not have 4 gongs, but in addition to the above has a split second/fly back/jumping minute counter, a monthly equation, termometer, 4-years indication, 24 hours indication and more.

It is of course true that these watches are not or no longer on the market.

Thank you for the report. However, I have to admit that I would have preferred to hear the chimes instead of the wonderful music, which seems to be a derivate of a Bach piece.

Warm regards

Lord Arran

Thanks for the information

But the Daniel Roth is based on the same movement as the Gerald Genta Grande Complication Grande Sonnerie, both are now made in the same manufacture in Geneva. More accurately, it is the only serially made movement with those functions.

Holy smokes, it sounds like a harpsichord!

Just kidding. I like the music, though. >;^)

Beautifully done, Harry, I have heard several specimen of the Grand Sonnerie...

except for volume (so far, consistently too soft) the pitch, timbre, tone have been excellent to top of class.

Improve volume and resonance, and I'd give this model / calibre "Best of class"

Excellent work, DR!
