This design is placed on the face of Rotonde de Cartier’s three-question double mysterious tourbillon watch, which is full of mystery. The minute repeater mechanism is set at 6 o’clock, and its delicate hammer is clearly visible, emphasizing the iconic style of the high-end watchmaking graphics card.

When the minute repeater function is activated, the inertia flywheel at 7 o’clock starts to run quietly, ensuring that the sound of the hour repeater is clear and pure, without any noise.
The tone can bring out the unique charm of the minute repeater, which depends on the shape and material of the movement’s tone spring. The 9407 MC calibre is equipped with a square steel reed of hardened stainless steel, which can perform eight overtones.
The sound length is the duration of the sound, which depends on the accuracy with which the hammer hits the gong. The square gong can control the striking range of the hammer more accurately. This structure ensures the consistency of each hit, and the inertial flywheel is responsible for adjusting the speed of the hammer, so that the time signal sounds stable and pleasant.
