Perrelet Turbine Carbon Racing

Having recently released the new Turbine Carbon line, including the Turbine Rainbow and Turbine Carbon Black Edition, Swiss luxury watch brand Perrelet presents the “Turbine Carbon Racing” model.

The sporty look of this watch is inspired by the exciting world of motor racing. It spotlights colours associated with the race track, like the chequered black and white flag waved at the end of the race or the red flag warning that the session is suspended or the racetrack curbs.

Presented in a round 44 mm case, the “Turbine Carbon Racing” features the new, wider style of vertical fluting on the case bands. The design of the flat bezel and the compact lugs correspond to the more contemporary aesthetic upgrades introduced on the Perrelet Turbine Evo line in 2019 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Turbine Technology.

Thanks to its ergonomics and innovative lightweight materials, the generous dimensions of the case adapt perfectly to the wrist.

Like any F1 car, weight reduction is essential, and the case middle is made of polycarbonate and carbon fibre. Carbon fibre is a robust but extremely light material, resistant to chemicals, temperature fluctuations and boasts excellent thermal insulation. On the other hand, the bezel and case back are made of stainless steel with a sleek black PVD coating.

The dial of the “Turbine Carbon Racing” is equipped with the signature 12-blade turbine that responds to the slightest movement of the wrist, spinning around the dial to reveal the matte black sub-dial. Made of black anodised aluminium with five counterweights that allow it to slow down and return to its resting position, the blades are decorated with a carbon fibre texture to match the case material.

A dynamic note of colour illuminating the dark dial is provided by the red and white chequerboard pattern printed on the minute flange and the hour ring. The mixed indices are applied to the dial and filled with Super-LumiNova.

In keeping with the racetrack-inspired red, white and black palette, the hour and minute hands emit a white glow in the dark, while the central seconds hand with its openworked counterweight is picked out in bright red.

Inside beats the second-generation Perrelet P-331-MH calibre. Manufactured by Soprod, which produces all Perrelet’s exclusive calibres, the movement boasts COSC and Chronofiable chronometry certification, guaranteeing the maximum reliability and precision of the movement powering this timepiece.

As with all Perrelet timepieces, the finishings of the movement are meticulously executed with perlage on the mainplate and an open-worked rhodium-plated oscillating weight with the Perrelet logo.

The new “Turbine Carbon Racing” comes with a waterproof leather strap with an embossed alligator print and a soft rubber lining. This timepiece is 100m / 10 ATM water-resistant.

The watch is delivered in a special ‘Tactical Box’, containing an additional black rubber strap and a special tool to mount the strap.
