Perrelet Turbine XL Watch - High-Tech Innovation and Brilliant Design

Nov 03, 2010
Passion and hard work lie behind every Perrelet creation. In its constant pursuit of originality and excellence, the brand never ceases to explore new horizons.

The story began in 1777, when Abraham-Louis Perrelet signaled a revolution by completing his invention of the automatic movement. In 1995, the brand patented its exclusive module, the Double Rotor.

Incorporated in the manufactory-made self-winding caliber P-181, two rotors can be admired on the dial and on the movement sides. This very mechanism served as a basis for the Turbine - the Perrelet iconic model.

Now, the brand is proud to introduce its novel Turbine XL watch. To please all tastes, the model is featured in three different versions. The eye-catcher of all executions is a long centralized seconds hand, dressed in red, orange or green.

The company is pleased to delight the public with A1050/1 and A1050/2 variations, which demonstrate a sporty appearance. Each version employs a generously-sized 50 mm case with a thickness equal to 14.30 mm. Its middle part is crafted from titanium, while a bezel and a rear side are rendered in DLC-treated stainless steel. Both front and back sides of the new Perrelet watches are fitted with anti-reflective sapphire crystals. The water-resistance of these items is assured down to 5 ATM.

The reference A1050/1 comes equipped with a black dial. It is completed with white luminous numerals and indices. Also black, the display of the reference A1050/2 reveals orange numerals and indices, just as well treated with a luminous compound. Both dials strike the eye with 12 blades of the turbine, finely honed and trimmed at an angle. Each timekeeper indicates hours, minutes and seconds.

Animating these functions is the brands proprietary self-winding Double Rotor P-181 caliber movement. Embellished with 21 rubies, the mechanism runs at the rate of 28, 800 vibrations per hour and offers a 40-hour power reserve.

The final touch is provided by a natural black rubber strap, closed with a titanium clasp.

Setting the next two interpretations apart is a material, employed in the manufacturing of its cases. Both timepieces - A1051/1 and A1051/3 - are sculptured in just DLC-treated stainless steel.

The A1051/1 version shows off a black dial, equipped with white luminous numerals and indices. Performed in the same color, the display of the A1051/3 watch features green luminous numerals and indices.

Fitting each of these models is a natural black rubber strap, securely fastened to the wrist with a DLC-treated stainless steel clasp.
The audience is also offered an opportunity to enjoy one more version of the new Turbine XL watch - A3027/1.

Strictly limited to 77 pieces, the model boasts the same key characteristics as the pieces described above. However, a middle part of its lavishly-sized 50 mm case is constructed from 18 carats rose gold. A bezel and a case-back, meanwhile, are manufactured from DLC-treated stainless steel.

Housed in the case is a black dial, marked with black numerals and white luminous indices.

This new Perrelet watch is mounted on a natural black rubber strap, finalized by a DLC-treated stainless steel clasp. Each model presented successfully blends high-tech innovation and brilliant design in perfect proportions.
