The Voice Of Time A Brief Comment On Breguet’s Classic Complex 7637 Three Questions Watch

In today’s watch industry, I believe that the three questions are the most fascinated by many watch fans. It can also be said that they are the most fascinated by the sound of time. Because of its super complicated structure and high price, I have played it. There are not many friends on the minute repeater. There are even fewer people who really own a minute repeater watch. Today, the watch house will introduce a Breguet minute repeater watch to everyone to learn more about the minute repeater. The official model of the watch is 7637BB / 12 / 9ZU.

At the end of the 17th century, the watchmaking industry leaders scrambled to create acoustic timepieces to let the wearer know the time in the dark. Around 1680, the first spring-loaded watch was finally released. Breguet’s 7637BB / 12 / 9ZU minute repeater watch not only has a minute repeater device, but also has a 24-hour day and night indicator at the three o’clock position of the watch.

 

The invention of the three-question question, in addition to the saying that ‘Europe aristocrats woke up at night to know the time but did not want to light candles’, the industry has also been circulating the idea that the three-question meter was originally invented for the blind. In short, under the clever hands of a talented watchmaker, the minute repeater chronograph watch came into being. As a mature technology, the mechanical structure of the minute repeater and timepiece for 150 years is basically fixed, without major changes and innovations. This can be found in the royal watch and the minute watch of the court of the late Qing Dynasty in China and the pocket watch of the Vacheron Constantin minute question more than 100 years ago.

 

This watch itself has many characteristics of Breguet, such as the distinctive features of Breguet, such as the coin decoration on the side of the watch case and straight lugs. The watch is made of 18K white gold, low-key luxury, 42 mm diameter design, worn on the wrist fool generously. Of course, this one is not willing to wear it on the wrist every day.

 

The strap of the watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap, sewn with black silk, soft and comfortable to wear. The buckle is a folding buckle in 18K white gold.

 

The minute hand on the side of the watch, when you push the handle, you will find that it is not so easy to push, you need to give it a little power. Because you are already winding the entire sounding mechanism during the push. If it is not full, some of the questionnaires only report incomplete time, and some simply do not report.

 

The watch face is also full of Breguet style, Paris shoe studs dial, blue steel Breguet pointer design, hidden signature and so on. Not only did Mr. Louis Breguet invent the tourbillon, but he also changed the three-in-one device, replacing the early bell with a steel leaf spring. The gong is installed around the movement, saving a lot of space.

 

The watch uses a sapphire crystal glass bottom design. We can observe the movement of the movement through the sapphire crystal glass. The watch movement is not only finely polished, but also engraved, which is beautiful. The precise operation of the gears is also visible.

 

The structure of the minute repeater is developed from the functions of Hours (One Question) and Time and Time (Two Questions). It is a very complicated system in the sound function of clocks, which is also the reason why it is expensive. . The most common minute repeater requires at least two ring gongs and two small hammers. A small hammer hit the gong to make a sound. The bass (produced by the thicker gong) represents the current hour, the high and low combined sounds represent the quarter clock, and the remaining minutes are reported by the treble (from the thinner gong), and finally the purpose of representing time by sound is achieved.

 
Summary: Today, the minute repeater still holds the supreme position in the ranks of complex watches. No matter from the sale price or the auction price, it remains strong. However, the price of antique minute repeater pocket watches is not particularly high, and the gap between them is very large. Today’s watches are much smaller than pocket watches, so the minute repeater device is more detailed, including the original design, polishing, assembly, and testing. It’s more difficult to wait, so the price is naturally a lot more expensive.
