The Turbine takes flight
Consistently guided by a spirit of innovation, Perrelet is now rising to a new challenge with the launch of the brand’s new Turbine Pilot collection, a tribute to the world of aviation which, like that of fine watchmaking, features a blend of technical knowhow, passion, precision and audacity.
The new Turbine Pilot collection by Perrelet associates the Turbine concept with that of the circular aviation slide rule: a new technical and stylistic exercise for a truly unique aviator watch.
At the heart of the collection beats the mechanical automatic P-311 caliber entirely developed and produced in-house at the brand’s production sites.
The four models in the collection assert a unique character marrying power and elegance. The stainless steel cases display a generous 48 mm-diameter featuring the Perrelet’s distinctive fluted pattern. Ensuring a resolutely masculine and sporty look, some models come in steel cases with a black PVD coating, a treatment ensuring excellent protection and enhancing the refined aesthetics of the watch.
The bidirectional rotating dial ring is activated via a crown at 3 o’clock, while the time is set with an integrated crown at 9 o’clock.
The luminescent white hour-markers and four Arabic numerals meticulously applied on the sapphire dial, above the Turbine, make a striking contrast with the yellow and black background: a combination of typical aviation colors that is further intensified when the Turbine is in action. The clever layered arrangement of the elements gives this collection a distinctive three-dimensional look. To ensure optimal readability, the dial and the spiral at the dial center are luminescent white.
The straps chosen for this collection are in black rubber or calf leather. The latter are ingeniously constructed in a manner guaranteeing an optimal fit and absolute comfort. To perfect the overall harmony of the Turbine Pilot, the pin buckles bear the same finishes as the cases.
