The Bell Hora model is reviving a practically forgotten complication – the “Sonnerie au passage”. Exactly on the hour, the watch produces a friendly chime, alerting the wearer to the passing of time without having to look at the dial. Different to church bells, the Bell Hora only strikes once and tells its wearer that a new hour has just begun, fully “en passant”. A pusher above the crown ensures that the hour does not ring for the happy owner if it is not desired, as the chime of the Bell Hora can be simply switched off. A black marking shows at a glance whether the watch is going to chime on the hour or remain silent.
