    Minute repeater and grande sonnerie

    You probably know this beautiful complication available only on very expensive pocket watches ,but did you know that you can have it on your Iphone ?
    Yes an application is available on the App store .

    I am fascinated by those repeater watches ,I have my grand father's one : a quarter repeater ,circa 1890 .
    The minute repeater stays out of my budget .
    So I decided to develop the complication on my cell phone , and here it is . It is called "grande sonnerie and minute repeater "

    Well, I'd stick to the mechanical ones from ca. 1890. Especially as I have no instrument to operate the computerised one.....

    Any movement picture of the one you showed us?
