Unlike most features in the watch that are traditional in nature, the repeater provides it with a modern look. It is an innovation on the part of Breguet and is named a ‘gong-spring’ repeater. The new design helps the repeater to generate a much better effect. When you watch the repeater in action, you can see the hammers striking the gongs towards the right side of the watch.
