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 watch, Perrelet has consistently cultivated an avant-garde spirit teamed with complete mastery 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 present and future tenses.
Perrelet masters all facets of the watchmaking art. Capable of developing all parts composing its movements, the brand is distinguished by a singular unique approach combining industrial efficiency with artisan-style workmanship. It thereby offers the most demanding horological enthusiasts a guarantee of peerless originality and quality. In its quest for perfection, Perrelet integrates the ingenious expertise and manual skills of its watchmakers under a single roof and even produces its own escapements - including the balance spring, an extremely rare token of competence stemming from ten years of research and development. Dozens of complementary watchmaking professions serve to enhance innovation - the cornerstone of the brand and its enduring promise to Fine Watchmaking enthusiasts.
