Perrelet takes its name from the Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Perrelet who invented the first version of the automatic self-winding movement in 1777.
More recently, the Bienne-based manufacture introduced and patented the Double Rotor, where the traditional rotor is accompanied by another rotor that is permanently visible in the dial centre.
Finally, in 2009, Perrelet introduced the Turbine, where the upper rotor is replaced by a large 12-blade wheel freely rotating around the entire dial in time with wrist movements and offering fascinating optical effects.
The latest addition to Perrelet’s Turbine collection is a chronograph version - the Turbine Chrono - which adds the new function while respecting the aesthetic codes of the collection.
Thanks to the transparency of the chronograph counter, the signature rotor of the Turbine watches remains perfectly visible. The date is displayed in the aperture at 6 o’clock.
The Turbine Chrono reference A174/2 has a 47 mm stainless steel case with a DLC-coated bezel ring. The turbine is made of titanium.
Four other versions are available as described in the picture below.
The masculine case of the Perrelet Turbine Chrono houses the double-rotor P-361 movement, visible through a sapphire crystal caseback.
