Skeleton Chronograph

The skeleton chronograph by Perrelet reveals a sporting heart. However fast time races by, it can be stopped at a press and then continue running as smoothly as ever. The precision of the mechanical complication is matched by the elegance of a movement that hints at its inner machines while preserving its secrets.

This is a watch with a definite sense of both openness and pace. It times sports accomplishments in an entirely clear manner, displaying the complexity of its movement through the intricate mazes of its mechanical skeletonized movement.

Its automatic Calibre P-291 movement reveals instrumented sophistication, framed by a black or silver-toned dial on which the numerals mark off time in graded shades of black, white, blue or orange.

Four transferred mineral discs display the chronograph minutes and hours at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively, the date at 3 o’clock, and the seconds at 9 o’clock – while providing full views of the fascinating gear trains. The watch embodies a new generation of timepieces epitomizing creative boldness while remaining firmly rooted in the fundamental attributes of its brand, loyal to its horological pedigree.

This watch eloquently embodies the meaning of design prowess. The model asserts its strength on the wrist with a steel case featuring a black DLC treatment, creating a masculine aura that is reinforced by the sporty touch of the rubber strap.

The movement offers mechanical watchmaking enthusiasts a wealth of pleasurable features: a 46-hour power reserve during which the wearer may choose to admire the smooth operation of the autonomously running movement; water resistance to 10 ATM (100 meters) rendering it an ideal diving companion; and a chronograph function to keep track of life’s many precious moments. In short, this model conveys a distinctly different vision of sport – and indeed of watchmaking itself.
