Godfather Musical Complication
Chiming mechanisms represent some of the most complicated and challenging mechanisms in haute horlogerie. The Opera Godfather brings the rarest type of audible complications to front: that of a musical box, engineered into the strict constraints of a wristwatch and designed to play the iconic theme music of The Godfather, recreated into this purely mechanical format in official partnership with Paramount Pictures.
A single press on the pusher situated at the 10 o'clock position of the case - crafted from 18K Rose Gold or Grade 5 Titanium - initiates the chiming mechanism and sets over 600 components into motion. A pair of uniquely crafted drums begin to rotate at a finely calculated tempo, brushing their 36 teeth against a pair of combs to evoke a total of 120 notes of the original movie track.
In unison with the 30-second operation of the chiming function, the entire movement and dial assembly of the Opera Godfather performs a rotation of 120°, a singular feat that serves as a testament to the powerful engineering that lives inside the JCFM04 caliber.
