Complication vs compilation

Shouldn’t it be compilation and not complication???

No
back in the old days when clocks were mechanical and you wanted a chime on the hour that required a different mechanism and that was a complication for the clock maker to solve.

A really complication clock might have different number of chimes for each hour, a coo-coo bird or gnome spinning. :slight_smile:

That is why they are called complications for time pieces even in electronic watches.
