Perrelet- Turbine

Since its unveiling at Baselworld 2009, the Perrelet Turbine has been one of the most discussed, blogged-about and desired watches on the planet.

What has caused such a stir about the Perrelet Turbine is the 12 titanium blades that spin behind the masculine watch’s face. Yes, the face actually spins. Inspired by a fighter plane’s Turbine engine, Perrelet’s new watch features a creative double-rotor movement that allows the wearer to actually see the movement in motion right on his wrist. On top of one of the coolest, most eye-catching watch designs in recent memory, the Turbine is coming from a brand that is really poised to be a major player in the coming years.

Hidden inside a rather large 44mm case, the movement beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and features a standard power reserve of 42 hours.
At this time, the Perrelet Turbine collection is available in titanium (Ref: A5006/1 and A1047/1), DLC-coated titanium (Ref: A1047/2) and much more expensive 18kt rose gold version.
