    Mechanical hour "beep" ?

    Ok, so on one end we have digital watches like G-Shocks that can beep on every full hour (like: beep beep). And then we have complicated mechanical watches with integrated bell that goes all nuts depending on what time it is (so if it's 6 it will ring the bell 6 times). Does anyone make a mechanical watch that only makes single or double "beep" on every full hour?

    The thing is, i'd quite fancy the full hour "beep" with mechanical watch, but not the long annoying ringing. Just a simple "dong" or "dong dong" and that's it. Is there any such thing?
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.

    I only know of Grande and Petite Sonneries, which include the quarter hour too, and are expensive...

    If it would be nice if you don't strictly need the whole orchestral stuff going on every 15 minutes. But same sound with only 2 tones for every full hour would be nice. Something they could even stuff into more affordable mechanical watches...
