The indications of this solid gold perpetual calendar are in German. The months are shown at 12 o’clock, the days of the week at 3 o’clock and the date at 9. The moon phase is displayed at 6 o’clock and combined with a 24 hour indication. A small window at 1 o’clock shows the current year. Three small crowns in the case are for setting the alarm, the hands and the calendar.
The "Grand Réveil" features a proper, bronze striking movement, which has a marvellous, full sound despite its small size. The existence of the alarm in an automatic watch with perpetual calendar and moon phase display within such a small space is truly a masterpiece of watchmaking and fascinates collectors and lovers of the "Grande Horlogerie" alike.
