On the 44 mm-diameter Turbine model, the characteristic upper rotor sweeps over a 4N rose gold-coated subsidiary wheel. Its luminous rays shine brightly on the surface, as the turbine swings into action. The hands, Arabic numerals and hour-markers provide additional luminous accents at the heart of a black DLC-coated steel case. To set the finishing touch and heighten the contrasts, the lugs are crafted from solid gold, creating a striking connection with the precious crocodile leather strap.
The Turbine Black & Gold Special Edition is issued in a 77-piece limited series – a nod to the year 1777 which saw the founding of the Perrelet brand. Its automatic P-331 movement was developed on the Manufacture A10 base caliber. It beats at 28,800 vph and is endowed with a 42-hour power reserve. Its Côtes de Genève finishing may be admired through the sapphire crystal set into the caseback.
