Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie
In developing the Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie, Jaeger‑LeCoultre completely rethought the principle of the minute repeater. Indicating the time thanks to the crystal clear tones of a Westminster chime, this exceptional model comprising over 1472 parts is one of the most complex watches ever made in the entire history of horology.

The Infernal Tower
The whole repeating mechanism is located in a single, three-tiered tower of 5.15 millimeters height and dubbed the ‘Infernal Tower’ by the watchmakers due to its complex construction. The different levels are made up of the minute snail, three quarter snails (one for each quarter in an hour), the hour snail and their corresponding cams. By this novel arrangement, the watchmakers for the first time were able to eliminate the need for a so-called ‘surprise piece’ which prevents chiming watches from chiming the last quarter hour in minutes instead of the new hour.
