We asked Mr Barat whether his team was required to make special considerations when building a minute repeater on the dial side. Mr Barat explains that the minute repeater mechanism is always located on the dial. The gong and hammer are on the bottom. The gongs are placed around the entire movement of a minute repeater. To put the gongs on the opposite side, we must place them above the baseplate (attached directly onto the case like the World Time Minute Repeater reference). 5531].

"It wasn't too much. It was more an animation for my group than a true challenge," says Mr Barat, beaming with pride.

"But the case is exactly the same," said Barat.
We asked Mr Barat, if the placement of the gongs on the dial-side posed any acoustic challenges with the 5303. He said that there were no differences in the recordings made of the 5303, which took place in special acoustic chambers. We asked if adjustments were needed to make sure that there would be no acoustic difference due to the new positioning of the gongs, hammers and other instruments. In response, Mr Barat said that his team had some experience with minute repeaters. There are some tricks we use to get good harmonics. But that's a secret.
