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.
A fascinating interpretation of the “double rotor” concept, the Turbine has since 2009 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 their lucky users 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.
Loyal to its pioneering spirit and keen to express its horological expertise more powerfully than ever, Perrelet reinforced the Turbine collection in 2013 by associating for the first time a horological complication with the characteristic playful creativity of this line. This approach thus gave rise to the Turbine Chrono and Turbillon models. By taking on board the chronograph and the tourbillon, the Turbine model is paving the way for promising future developments. In 2014, Perrelet presented its new Turbine Pilot collection combining the turbine concept with that of the circular aviation slide rule: a new exercise in both technical and stylistic terms, for a truly unique aviator watch. In parallel, Perrelet launched the Turbine Skeleton, a model associating the turbine with a Manufacture-made skeleton movement that reveals its full charm when the turbine located above the dial spins freely and at full speed.
