Perrelet Regulator Retrograde Watch - Intriguing and Exceptional

Oct 01, 2010
Perrelet has created the Regulator Retrograde watch inspired by reference clocks of the old days that were used by observatories, stations and watch workshops in particular. Called "regulators", the clocks showed hours and minutes with help of distinct dial segments. This dial structure was meant to regulate and control the advancing progress of the timepieces, facilitated time reading and provided the measurement of time with utmost precision.

The Perrelet Regulator Retrograde watch represents the brand’s avant-garde speciality, developed and produced by MHVJ (standing for Manufacture horlogere de la Vallee de Joux), a sister company. The timepiece is animated by an automatic movement - the P-221 calibre. You can drop a glance at the movement’s Perrelet finishes through the sapphire crystal case back.

Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 35-ruby movement gives an advantage of a 40-hour power reserve.

The face of the watch offers the top level of legibility, inherent to all Perrelet watches, along with a highly appealing nonconformist display.

The dial is divided into segments. Your glance will be caught by a window at 12 o’clock – it features the retrograde hours for a half-day (implying 12 one-hour zones). As for the minutes, they are shown on a 6 o’clock disc. The blued steel seconds hand in the center sweeps around the dial. The date hand is also found in the center.

The 42 mm case of the Perrelet watch is rendered in stainless steel or 18K pink gold and is 50-meter water-resistant. It is presented on a black alligator strap. The dial, either silvered white or black, is shielded by an anti-glare sapphire crystal.

There is also a titanium version of the Perrelet Regulator Retrograde watch with a slightly bigger 43.5 mm case that boasts 100-meter water-resistance and goes on a natural black rubber strap. It features a black and anthracite dial.
