The Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Symphonia Grande Sonnerie 1860 is the first grand sonnerie of Vacheron
Grande sonnerie is French for ‘big strike’. It is a watch complication that combines a quarter striking mechanism with a repeater. So it strikes the time in hours and quarters each quarter, and on demand (repeater function). A petite sonnerie does not have a repeater function.
