A COSC-certified chronometer, the Manero Minute Repeater Symphony contains three patented peripheral elements within its in-house MR3000 movement: the winding system, the tourbillon and the regulator for the minute-repeater mechanism, which strikes two hammers on two gongs. Together, these innovations form the horological symphony that gives the watch its name. Cut-outs on the dial side expose the two hammers, while a window at 6 o’Clock showcases the regulator — peripherally mounted on ceramic ball bearings — that controls the speed of the repeater chimes. A protective mechanism built into the movement prevents inadvertent misuse: at 9 o’clock, a blue dot indicates when the crown is pulled out, while a music note lets the wearer know that the minute-repeater function is activated. Crowning it all, the tourbillon, which carries the small seconds display, sits proudly at 12 o’clock.
