Breguet unveils the Tradition Repetition Minutes Tourbillon 7087

If you thought acoustics didn’t have much to do with watch-making then Swiss watch manufacturer Breguet, is set to prove you wrong. After several years of research, the brand has become the first ever company to develop a timepiece around a predetermined sound. The Tradition Répétition Minutes Tourbillon 7087 features “an exceptionally pure sound and unprecedented tone” and will hit the market by the end of this year.

Breguet’s engineers used specially developed sound generators for experimenting with over 200,000 combinations of frequencies which were then classified into categories based on psychoacoustic criteria. After a careful listening, a sound was chosen that best met the development objectives. This sound formed the foundation for the development and construction of the model.
