Perrelet Creates Semi-Skeletonised Split-Seconds Chronograph

Oct 28, 2009
The limited series Split-Second Chronograph from Perrelet, released to pay tribute to the brand’s inventor Louis-Frederic Perrelet, was destined to become a massive hit. Currently, this exclusive complication has worthy successors, presented in three novel interpretations.

The newcomers to the brand’s collection stand out due to the layout of the sub-dials on glass discs. They will definitely enchant those watch enthusiasts, who prefer up-to-date, intriguing and exquisite models.

One of the variations of the impressive Perrelet Semi-Skeletonised Split-Seconds Chronograph is available in a clever blend of stainless steel and black ceramic. This remarkable duo of deep black ceramic and glacial surface of the polished and satin-finished steel definitely increases the visual appeal of the Rerrelet watch.

All black-treated models are sculptured in steel and feature the DLC-coating, which provides the surface with an extremely attractive dark overtone. The DLC-coating, that is “Diamond-Like Coating”, represents a carbon overlay, applied in the form of amorphous diamond, which assures a much higher resistance of the watch case. Its value constitutes 5500, measured on the Vickers scale.

One more interpretation, Perrelet’s collection has been enriched with, is offered as irresistible combination of pink gold with black ceramic. There could hardly be found a better way to emphasize the masculine character of the model.

The watch dials are also proposed in various combinations, which embrace painted Arabic numerals, luminescent indexes, as well as a special openwork feature, which allows a view to the semi-skeletonized mechanical Calibre P-241 movement.

The latter incorporates a fly-back mechanism, which permits the wearer to record successive intervals of elapsed time.

The functionality of the models also includes central hours and minutes, seconds and date on discs, as well as sweep seconds with an hours and minutes indicator on discs. Born from the dexterous fingers of Perellet outstanding specialists, the four printed mineral glass discs celebrate the union of complication and aesthetic refinement.

This transparent complication, protected by a sapphire glass both on the front and backsides of the watch, shows off enchanting details of the complex mechanism: rhodium-finished wheels and blued screws, a going barrel, along with delicately angled and embellished bridges.

Each of the interpretations of the Perrelet Semi-Skeletonised Split-Seconds Chronograph comes with a natural black rubber bracelet, marked with “Perrelet” logo and fitted with a deployment buckle.
