It activates the minute repeater

This once came in white gold, which is how I was shown it. It may still, but this is the only version on the website.



In white gold, it is the most perfect, most beautiful dress watch. If I have ever done anyone here a favor that you feel like returning, you may buy this for me.

I like that a lot but I like the hobnail patters on the white gold simple Calatrava Pateks a little more.
