Amytis. This name with age-old overtones is inspired by the history of the hanging gardens of Babylon, built by Nebuchadnezzar to remind his wife, Amytis of Media, of the forest-covered mountains of her native land. With this new collection, Perrelet thereby pays tribute to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and doubtless the most beautiful Queen of Babylon.
The Diamond Flower Amytis collection is equipped with a movement automatically wound via an oscillating weight, the Double Rotor P-181-H, patented by Perrelet and entirely produced within its Manufacture. It affords the opportunity of observing two rotors: one on the dial side - which depicts flower petals swaying in time with wrist movements and creating a suspended effect in reference to the hanging gardens of Babylon - and the other on the movement side. Their synchronized coordination drives the barrel and ensures more efficient winding.
Three models are offered, featuring a stainless steel 36.5 mm-diameter stainless steel case fitted with a see-through sapphire crystal caseback. The models with a black or white mother-of-pearl dial and matching alligator leather strap are enhanced by an openworked Double Rotor shaped like flower petals and partially set with diamonds. Another even more precious version is distinguished by a diamond-set bezel framing a white and anthracite dial, while the Double Rotor is adorned with petals and enhanced by white mother-of-pearl and diamonds.
