Aviation Inspiration with Perrelet
The Turbine model, icon of the brand, is the most dynamic interpretation of the Double Rotor technology, the identifying symbol of the Perrelet brand. Designed in 2009 in the heart of the Perrelet manufacture in Switzerland, this model continues to surprise watch-lovers who want an exclusive timekeeper on their wrist. An original design, a powerful personality, the lively colors used and a fun aspect have always characterised the Turbine collection, which wields a profound fascination over those who contemplate it!
The new Turbine Pilot, with a sporty look, finds its inspiration in the world of aeronautics, and was conceived to satisfy those who love to roam the skies. Just as in the cockpit of a plane, the Turbine Pilot is equipped with essential instruments for flight: the circular slide rule on the bi-directional inner rotating ring, adjustable thanks to the crown at 3 o’clock.
This new interpretation of the Turbine Pilot conserves all the features of professional aviation instruments, skillfully adding a new element: the turbine, independent from the movement, composed of 12 black anodized aluminum blades that rotate incredibly quickly at the slightest movement of the wrist, thanks to the tungsten counterweights under the blades.
In tribute to the blue of the sky, the hour, minute and second hands, as well as the raised indexes and the Arabic numerals 3, 6, 9, and 12 on the sapphire glass take on an intense luminescent electric blue. The minute circle has the same tone. The electric blue stripes contrast with the black under-dial, as does the spiral which decorates the central part of the turbine. www.Perrelet.com
