Perrelet Goes Commando

Perrelet Goes Commando

We are huge admirers of Perrelet, a brand with a prestigious history, given that Abraham-Louis Perrelet is credited with inventing the ‘self-winding’ mechanism in 1770. Fast-forward 250-years and Perrelet are still going strong.

Perrelet continues to surprise with its countless interpretations of its iconic Turbine timepiece. First patented in 2009, the Turbine has become the signature timepiece of the brand. Perrelet expands its Turbine collection with the ‘Turbine Camo’ model, a limited series of just 100 pieces. 

The unique design and strong personality of the new watch fuses the playful nature of the Turbine, that spins with the slightest movement of the wrist, with military colours. ‘Camo’ or Camouflagea specific colouration or pattern that blends in with the surroundings for concealment. 

The new ‘Turbine Camo’ has a round 44mm steel case (treated with black PVD), with the typical vertical grooves on the sides of the case, an integrated crown at 3 o’clock and water-resistance of 50 meters. The same black PVD coating is used on the ten blades of the turbine. The blades are made from aluminum, a lightweight material that is combined with five tungsten counterweights to allow the blades to spin with great speed and return to their original point of departure. 

The watch is powered by the Perrelet P-331 automatic manufacture calibre with a 42-hour power reserve. The case back is sealed with six screws with a transparent porthole to admire the refined finishes on the bridges and its open-worked oscillating weight personalised with the logo of the House.
