The watch is equipped with the Jaeger-LeCoultre 950 self-winding movement, which perfectly combines the two top factors that affect the quality of the bell sound-strong volume and beautiful sound. The harmonious blending of the above two has plagued the best watchmakers of all generations. They have always believed that the two cannot be obtained at the same time, and there must be a choice.

  The Jaeger-LeCoultre R & D team has taken a unique approach and designed a distinctive new gong structure to obtain the ideal bell sound. The common minute repeater gongs are usually placed on top of overlapping coils, and the design of the MasterGrandeTraditionRépétitionMinutesPerpétuelle subtle traditional watch series subverts the tradition, re-designing the gongs in thickness and space in a way never seen before. The bases of the two gongs are welded together, surrounding the edge of the movement in the same direction, suddenly arching over the movement, spanning the entire thickness of the movement, and then separating, respectively, surrounding the other side of the movement, and Stop before the ends touch each other.

  The gong is an element that forms sound vibration. Therefore, the Jaeger-LeCoultre 950 movement saves the most space for it, in order to strengthen the sound transmission ability.

Based on the principle of acoustics, people will subconsciously put weaker sound sources and resonance bodies together (for example, placing a personal music player on a glass plate to achieve expansion. Sound effects).

  Jaeger-LeCoultre’s unique innovative sounding design, such as square cross-section gongs and articulated Trebuchet balance hammers, can ensure that the strength of the struck gongs is maximized, and the interference caused by hammer rebound is minimized.

  The bass spring is spiral from the spring bottom to the spring top. Although the shape is irregular, it makes the sound transmission flow in one direction. When it vibrates, it produces harmonious overtones, making the bass full and balanced.

  The treble reed changes direction, and the main body can be folded back, just like the fork of a tuning fork. This is intended to strengthen the vibration of the gong body, create a more pure tone, and make the treble clear and pleasant.
