Triple Jack Minute Repeater

Ulysse Nardin was one of the earliest manufactures to fuel the rebirth of the minute repeater. The minute repeater was made even more unique through the inclusion of animated figures called Jaquemarts on the dial, and to this day Ulysse Nardin remains the only manufacture in the world to use Jaquemarts on the dial of its minute repeaters. This is a limited edition of 50 pieces. Inside Information: Minute repeaters are complex to manufacture, but the real challenge lies in the sound quality. It is for this reason that each minute repeater must be individually tuned by a master watchmaker. The process can be arduous: The tone is often adjusted by removing a small amount of metal from the gongs, but each time this is done the movement must be recased since the sound can be properly tested only when the watch is complete.
