?Crystal Gong?
In order to achieve a crystal-clear sound in a massive platinum case, JLC?s ingenious watchmakers attached the ?Antoine Le-Coultre?s? gong heel to the front sapphire crystal. As a result, the sound emitted upon activating the minute repeating functions is of pure and distinct acoustic quality.
