This poetic complication can be activated with the winding lever at 8’o clock. A bass note for the hours,a treble note for the minutes or two notes for the quarter hours, all is melody. The transparent openings of the mother-of-pearl dial embellished with a musical key offer a glimpse of the harmonious ballet of the hammers whilst the baguette diamond studded 18 carat white gold case lights up this exceptional timepiece.
