How does a Minute Repeater work?

Update November 2022: Esquire Magazine ceased to exist in The Netherlands and the entire website has been removed – Unfortunately we can no longer link you to the Esquire article.

If you want an answer to that question, please click on the photo above and read our article in the ‘Big Watch Book’ of Esquire magazine from last December. Here we try to explain in a somewhat simple way, without getting too technical, how a Minute Repeater complication inside a wristwatch exactly works and operates. This is also a nice article if you want to know more about the operation of a Perpetual Calendar or a Tourbillon complication, explained by other colleagues from the watch universe.
