The name Turbillon stands for a Tur(bine) with a (tour)billon: a sensational and aristocratic world première. A crystal veil offers the admiring gaze a chance to plunge into the innovative heart of a prestigious movement.
The Turbine, a successful collection that lends unique character to Perrelet’s iconic Double Rotor, is one of the brand’s most sophisticated collections in terms of its horological content. The distinctive wheel spinning freely above the dial appears in a transparent version affording unobstructed views, as this evolution of the initial concept opens up whole new vistas.
The Turbillon debuts a refined turbine carved out of noble sapphire. The transparent blades discreetly enliven the dial and unexpected reveal the brand-new tourbillon from Perrelet. The prestigious mechanism incorporates an innovative escapement with an oxidized silicon wheel and lever, at the heart of an exclusive self-winding movement developed by the sister company in the Vallée de Joux. Observers may admire its hand-crafted finishing including a delicate Côtes de Genève motif adorning the base-plate and bridges revealed through the back of the watch.
Caliber P-371 displays the hours and minutes in the center and the hands are fixed to the heart of a circle forming a lucky “figure 8” with the circumference of the tourbillon carriage visible at 12 o’clock. Around it, the black dial is enhanced by a raised structure available in two versions and echoing the blades of the turbine. The case adopts a new 46-millimeter diameter and features reinforced triple lug attachments. Perrelet offers three variations – black DLC-coated steel and natural steel, all-black, or two-tone black DLC-coated steel and pink gold – all fitted with black rubber straps.
