The family of minute repeating calibers, featuring double-long, so-called ‘cathedral’ gongs, was launched by Parmigiani Fleurier in 2011. The immediate impetus for this development was the early 19th century Perrin Frères pocket watch with a wandering hours complication that Parmigiani Fleurier restored for the Edouard and Maurice Sandoz Foundation’s collection of timepieces. The unusual and very resonant minute repeater gongs of this pocket watch, which were made of decorated blued steel shaped as a snake, inspired Michel Parmigiani to use a similar technique in a wristwatch movement. Modern wristwatches with a minute repeater and a sealed case always face the problem of insufficient sonority of the chime. Double-length gongs are one promising way to solve this problem. It is also useful to create a larger internal volume inside the watch case, which contributes to the resonance of the sound.
