The colour red, symbolizing action, passion and strength, infuses the new dial of Perrelet’s two latest Turbine XL models with the powerful intensity associated with the dynamic principle of this collection.
In creating the first Turbine, the Perrelet engineers and designers devised a concept based on a sophisticated aesthetic featuring energetic, sporty lines. They drew inspiration from aeronautics in dreaming up an essentially visual rather than technical interpretation of Perrelet’s patented Double Rotor.
The latter is transformed into a turbine fitted with 12 titanium blades and which, when set into motion, provides tantalizing glimpses of the spectacular red and black under-dial. The hour-markers on the black inner bezel ring accentuate the optical effect and contribute to the mesmeric fascination of this model.
This imposingly virile timepiece radiates undeniable strength with its 48 mm case available in an all black PVD-coated stainless steel version or a two-tone variation with titanium case middle and black PVD-coated bezel and caseback. A rubber strap with a pin buckle complements the challenger-style spirit of this watch, while the compact nature of its design is highlighted by the discreet crown merging seamlessly into the case.
Admirably reflecting both the horological expertise and the artistic skills cultivated by Perrelet, the Turbine XL is driven by the self-winding P-331 movement with a 42-hour power reserve. This fine mechanism entirely developed and produced in-house at the brand’s production sites may be admired through a transparent sapphire caseback.
