The Perrelet engineers and designers drew inspiration from aeronautics in dreaming up an essentially visual rather than technical interpretation of Perrelet’s patented Double Rotor. The latter is transformed into a turbine fitted with 12 titanium blades and which, when set into motion, provides tantalizing glimpses of the spectacular red and black under-dial. The hour-markers on the black inner bezel ring accentuate the optical effect and contribute to the mesmeric fascination of this model.
The Turbine XL is driven by the self-winding P-331 movement with a 42-hour power reserve. This mechanism entirely developed and produced in-house at the brand’s production sites may be admired through a transparent sapphire caseback.
The timepiece has a 48 mm case available in an all black PVD-coated stainless steel version or a two-tone variation with titanium case middle and black PVD-coated bezel and caseback. A rubber strap with a pin buckle complements the Turbine XL Red.
