I had the chance of wearing on my wrist the wonderful skeletonized minute repeater, albeit for a few moments only. I heard several times too. It is a wonderful peice, amazingly executed... Pictures do not make it justice.
I have one bad comment though: you really need to strain to hear it properly. I was used to my pocket watch repeater, and the wristwatch really doesn't come close in terms of sound amplification (I had been todl that before, but didnt' imagine the difference). Not enough metals around for good resonance I think. The sound was very clear though.
This was in London and teh watch cost 290,000 UK pounds.... (around $550,000...).
It was really an something I never thought I'd have the chance to experience.... :-) Great start of the New Year!!
