And I wonder if they will use the same techniques and innovation in future minute repeaters too

Whoever put the numerals like that should be arrested!

What time should we meet for dinner? How about 80,30 a quarter to 60?

Agreed. Number layout is horrible.

Would never buy a watch that embodies such a dumb design decision.

The dial reflects a design element of the Devialet speaker . . .

I think it's a cool look. I like having Arabic numerals but agree they need to be oriented differently and, perhaps, drop the "0." My neck doesn't twist in the way the numerals require M4 ...

It’s the exact same design! 😳

Is it a good thing to have such a loud MR?

I'm not so sure... When I think of a minute repeater, I think of delicate, crystalline, beautiful chimes ...not sheer volume (even if still beautiful)

To be heard, indeed. [nt]
