Swiss luxury watch brand Perrelet expands its popular Turbine collection and welcomes the “Turbine Camo” model, a limited series of just 100 pieces.
Perrelet Turbine Camouflage, always tuned into the latest trends and tastes of watchmaking enthusiasts on the hunt for exclusive pieces, has endowed this latest model with a fresh, modern and dynamic style.
The unique design and strong personality of the new “Turbine Camo” fuses the playful nature of the Turbine that spins with the slightest movement of the wrist, with military colours. Crafted entirely in Perrelet’s ateliers, the camouflage gives the watch a tough, virile personality.The new “Turbine Camo” has a round case 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 44mm case is crafted in steel treated with black PVD to make it more resistant to scratches.
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.As the ten blades of the turbine complete their rotations, a sub-dial decorated with military camouflage in light green, olive green, beige and brown tones materialises from below the dial. The black flange of the dial is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and bears the hour indications with a mix of white Arabic numerals and indices.
The minutes scale also features white Arabic numerals at 5-minute intervals. The numerals (13-24) on the minutes scale mean that night-time hour readings are also possible endowing the watch with extra functionality.To ensure optimal legibility, the Arabic numerals, indices and hour and minute hands are covered in Super-LumiNova while the red central seconds hand adds a bright note of colour.
The “Turbine Camo” 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.The timepiece comes with a rubber strap decorated with the same camouflage pattern as the dial. It is attached to the wrist with a black PVD-coated steel pin buckle and embellished with the brand logo.
Perrelet Turbine, the prestigious Swiss watchmaking house whose roots date back to 1777, is renowned for its unique representation of the automatic movement thanks to its patented Double Rotor and Turbine technology. Once again, Perrelet surprises watch enthusiasts with new interpretations of its “Turbine Pilot”, a collection inspired by the world of aviation.
