As a minute repeater watch, the sound quality of the time signal is particularly important. The watchmaker found that among the various components of sound wave propagation, the propagation speed of the gong when vibrating must be faster than that of the gong itself. Most of the questionnaires are structures where two hammers strike their respective spring bars. If there are three or more hammer springs, a beautiful Zhongle questionnaire is formed, especially a four-hammer questionnaire that reports the quarter clock. There will be more rich timbre changes. Of course, there is another higher level of the questionnaire, which is the self-sounding watch. The difference from the questionnaire is that it can automatically report the time. Of course, a set of automatic timepiece clockwork must be added as a source of power. Automatic spring watch.
It is no coincidence that the big self-sounding function is regarded as the most challenging of all the complex functions in watchmaking. This function relies entirely on the coordination of sophisticated installations made by talented and experienced watchmakers from the highest quality materials. ‘Flexible and stable’ is the principle of the interaction between moving parts. The precision of the operation of the parts allows the watch to sound accurately and to produce unparalleled pure music. Generally speaking, the big self-sounding watch will have a big and small self-sounding conversion device, which are represented by GS and PS respectively. In addition, there is a ‘silent’ conversion device to control the corresponding function in an environment that is not suitable for self-sounding. Of course, if you want to know the correct time, you can also use the button or dial on the case to make the function of the timepiece. This question and answer format not only cleverly grasps the time from the auditory sense, but also shows the watchmaker’s ability to control complex machinery.
