PERRELET’S TRYST WITH BOLLYWOOD
Perrelet: showcasing a stunning dialogue between gold and tradition
Glowing since the dawn of time on every precious treasure, gold finds its natural place on a Perrelet watch. Embodying the encounter between age-old legend and one of the most distinguished creative traditions in fine watchmaking, gold nobly enhances the four newcomers to the First Class and First Class Skeleton line.
Designed to appeal to the discerning eye of the connoisseur, including by its fluted profile, the 4N 18K pink gold case of these four new First Class and First Class Skeleton models measures 42.50 mm in diameter and 10.70 mm thick. These are perfect dimensions in which to house a Manufacture-made mechanical automatic Perrelet movement: the P-321 driving three hands and a date at 6 o’clock for the former category; and the P-381 skeleton version with three functions for the latter. Both express the centuries-old horological mastery cultivated by Perrelet and fired by the spirit of its legendary founder.
Perrelet’s inherent perfectionism is reflected in every part composing its elegant creations, starting with the incredible feat represented by the skeleton-working of the P-381 movement. The latter is thus transformed into an exquisite metallic lacework, notably featuring the extreme hollowing of the winding weight bearing the brand initial and visible through the see-through sapphire crystal caseback glareproofed on both sides.
Also protected by a sapphire crystal glarperoofed on both sides, the dial tells its own fascinating story. Whether through the subtle composition of the classic First Class models or the more daring approach manifested in the First Class Skeleton creations, it draws all eyes. On the First Class models, its raised, finely grained and guilloché texture comes in a choice of black or white versions, punctuated by baton-type hour-markers swept over by three hands. The First Class Skeleton models feature a large central opening revealing the intricate workings of the gleaming Perrelet movement.
To secure these exceptional creations to the wrist, Perrelet has chosen a supple black or brown alligator leather strap with a pin buckle also in 4N 18K rose gold. Through these First Class and First Class Skeleton models gracing the wrists of discerning individuals, aesthetes and collectors, gold continues to exercise its timeless fascination and to charm the gaze as much as the heart.
