The very nature of a skeleton timepiece lies in playing with transparency effects. That is precisely what Perrelet achieves by entirely skeletonizing its finely crafted in-house movement, Caliber P-381, featuring cut-out effects revealing its inner workings. The finely trimmed components and finishes add a final touch to the revamped movement.
Perrelet also uses these transparency effects in aesthetic terms, since they represent the main feature of the concept behind the Turbine collections. On this model, the aluminum turbine is directly mounted on the under-dial, itself openworked so as not to obstruct the view inside. When spinning at full speed, the movement’s ethereal architecture is revealed through each of its openings.
The 44 mm-diameter case of this new collection is available in steel with a black PVD coating, or fitted with a 4N pink gold bezel. The inner bezel ring ensures optimal readability thanks to luminescent Arabic numerals and hour-markers. The hour and minute hands are coated in Superluminova, while the red seconds hand stands out clearly against this backdrop. The timepieces in the Turbine Skeleton collection are fitted with innovative black bi-material straps: calfskin leather with a polyurethane core to guarantee ergonomics and a comfortable feel on the wrist; or black rubber for a resolutely sporty look.
