Perrelet - Creative Genius
With its impressive watchmaking heritage spanning over 240 years of history, Swiss watchmaker Perrelet is renowned today for its timepieces with ‘animated’ dials. Characterized by the iconic Double Rotor and Turbine models, these fascinating timepieces were developed in honor of founder Abraham Louis Perrelet, the precursor of the first self-winding movement. As heirs of the grand watchmaking master, every model in Perrelet’s collection bears an automatic manufacture movement.
Guided by creativity and a determination to innovate in watchmaking, the technical team at Perrelet presented the first automatic movement with a Double Rotor in 1995. Requiring five years of R&D, the Double Rotor has become the flagship style of the brand.
The new “First Class Double Rotor Black Edition” is the latest model in the First Class line. Entirely designed and produced in Perrelet’s manufacture, it benefits from patented Double Rotor technology with a double oscillating mass that allows the automatic mechanism to accumulate energy from the two rotors. The first oscillating mass is placed under the caliber, while the second is visible on the dial allowing the owner to observe the energy supply to the movement.
Perrelet’s latest creation, with its view of the harmonious ‘dance’ of wheels and gears inside the beating heart of the watch, was conceived for aficionados and collectors who appreciate fine mechanics.
The “First Class Double Rotor Black Edition” is presented in a steel case with a 42mm diameter and treated, for the first time in this line, with black PVD. The case is water-resistant to 50m/5ATM. The lines of the case are fluid with rounded, bevelled lugs decorated with a vertical satin-brush finish and a contrasting polished bezel. The middle case is decorated with a combination of polished and brushed grooves as is the crown, which is personalized with an engraved Perrelet logo
Perrelet celebrates the first decade of its innovative Turbine technology and breathes life into a second generation of models decked out with mesmerizing turbines on board. The look is still sporty but its silhouette is more refined adding a touch of contemporary sophistication that is more in touch with today’s aesthetics.
“TURBINE EVO” is housed in a new sporty-chic case with a newly designed automatic movement. For the first time in its ten-year history, all the movements which equip this collection are covered by the COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) certification, testifying high precision in timekeeping after having undergone a series of tests. Additionally, another added value in comparison to the past, the new Turbine EVO comes with an integrated metal bracelet.
The stainless steel case of the “TURBINE EVO”, also available with a black PVD or a 4N rose gold PVD coating, measures 44mm in diameter and has a thickness of 13.82mm. Entirely revamped for a more refined aesthetic appeal, the case features new lugs, a flatter and smoother bezel and a fluted case band. Perrelet.com.
