Perrelet has announced the Turbine Skeleton, a new timepiece that showcases the inner workings of its movement. It will combine Perrelet’s technical knowledge, which dates back more than 200 years, with a contemporary design.
The Turbine Skeleton will feature a skeleton movement with a turbine, a new take on the ‘Turbine’ brand from Perrelet. The design plays on transparency effects, highlighting the in-house calibre P-381 movement, through cut-out effects.
The 44 mm case will be available in stainless steel with black PVD coating, or fitted with a rose gold (18 carats, 4N) bezel. The inner bezel ring features luminescent Arabic numerals and hour-markers. The hour and minute hands are coated in Super-LumiNova, whilst the red seconds hand provides a contrast against the background.
As with prior additions to Perrelet’s Turbine brand, the Turbine Skeleton’s aluminium turbine is mounted directly on the under-dial, thus not obstructing the view. As it spins at full speed, the architecture of the movement is revealed through each opening.
Each timepiece in the Turbine Skeleton collection is fitted with either black bi-material calfskin leather with a polyurethane core or black rubber.
Perellet appears to be aiming to cater to both watchmaking connoisseurs and design lovers with the Turbine Skeleton.
