Perrelet Watchmaking Passion
Perrelet is a watchmaking front-runner and influencer. Right from its origins, almost 250 years ago, the brand was considered a pioneer and a pillar of Haute Horlogerie. As the inventor of the automatic or self-winding watch, Perrelet has consistently cultivated an avant-garde spirit teamed with complete mastery of the elaboration of its timepieces. The brand is driven by a passion for precision and rigorous technical discipline, infused with a hint of difference and singularity. Its watches embody a new modernity in a spirit of sportiness and excellence. While the brand faithfully perpetuates the watchmaking heritage of its legendary founder, Abraham-Louis Perrelet, it naturally expresses its intense passion for horology in both present and future tenses.
For Perrelet, fine watchmaking is a universe of both hand and mind, in which creativity is expressed through rigorous execution, and in which preserving a tradition means continuing and innovating. A universe built on daring inventions, perpetuated through the ages and expressed in prestigious watchmaking creations.
A fascinating interpretation of the "double rotor" concept, the Turbine has rapidly become the iconic Perrelet model. The collection is the ultimate embodiment of creativity and naturally appeals to fans of innovative horology. Turbine timepieces offer a range of optical and visual effects that are unique in the watchmaking world, thanks to the ingenious combination of a free-spinning propeller-type upper rotor, rotating at full speed in step with wrist movements, and an under-dial on which designers can give free rein to their imagination. Building on a unique, emblematic and instantly recognizable design, the Turbine collection takes on a variety of faces in both masculine and feminine versions.
With the First Class Double Rotor Skeleton watch, Perrelet combines the horological traditions embodied in its innovative Double Rotor created 20 years ago with its expertise in the art of skeleton working. Thanks to this ingenious association, the openworked dial enables the eye to wander leisurely through the intricate depths of the mechanism, lulled by the natural rhythm of the second rotor. Perrelet is a full-fledged Manufacture that has opted to equip this model with Caliber P-481.
