 The tiger and the lion belong to the same vein. The tiger is regarded as a symbol of power and strength. It is very distinctive around the world and in different cultures. In Europe, Asia and the Middle East, it is often related to the power of the king.
 In the 15th century, the Duke of Venice, Agostino Barbarigo, commissioned the construction of an iconic San Marco Campanile in Piazza San Marco, with a San Marco Winged Lion and a legendary bronze statue striking the clock once every hour. Since the bell tower first timed, it has been an amazing memorial tower.

 For the Athenian watch, the idea of ​​adding moving figures or animals to the watch came from the famous bell ringers on the clock tower. The bell tower was erected by the sparkling canal, which became the source of inspiration for the San Marco series of Athens watches and other timepieces.
 The ‘Double Tiger’ minute repeater is inspired by the early minute repeater. It uses a newly designed 18K rose gold case with a diameter of 43 mm and a black onyx dial. The classic watch design retains a sense of the times and reflects the trend. Trend, the action figure on the dial perfectly reflects the retro trend and modern design.

One of the tigers will slap the front paws with the sound of the spring. The minute repeater is equipped with a rare self-winding movement, and the ‘Double Tiger’ minute repeater will cross the hour and announce itself when necessary. When the self-sounding function is activated, the tiger will tap the front paw several times accordingly.

When the S hand points to the hourglass, the function will stop when the bell sounds. Conversely, if the pointer points to a small dot, the self-timer will start. The anti-reflective sapphire crystal case back provides excellent protection for the movement, and the see-through case back admires its complex and charming movement. In addition, the watch is water-resistant to 30 meters.

At the end of the 1980s, Athens clocks had combined time clocks with elaborate activity figures to become one of the early manufacturers of revival clock technology. Today, Athens watches are still one of the few watchmaking brands in the world to use time dolls to make timepieces. The minute repeater and single repeater watches cannot be produced mechanically, making them outstanding examples of high-end watches. .
