Parmigiani Fleurier PFH4392004100HA1441 description
The chime watch, one of the oldest interpretations of time dating from the 15th Century, has always challenged the laws of miniaturisation. Invented at a time when night lighting made reading the time far from easy, the minute repeater has undergone a number of changes. Today it is still regarded as one of the finest and most complex watchmaking complications that exist.
The Toric Quaestor features a minute repeater with cathedral chimes. The minute repeater sounds the hours, quarter-hours and minutes on 2 cathedral gongs. The movement is manual and is fitted with a device for disengaging time-setting while the chime is sounding.
