Immerse yourself for just a moment in your childhood memories and travel back in time. You are in hot pursuit of the bad guy, equipped with your popgun and proudly wearing a sheriff’s badge on your chest. With its Turbine Sheriff watch exclusively created for the Only Watch charity auction, this is precisely the fond memory that Perrelet invites you to relive.
For all those who enjoy indulging in a bit of nostalgia, Perrelet has created a one-of-a-kind Turbine Sheriff watch. It stands out with its 48mm-diameter pink gold case middle creating a striking contrast with the black PVD-coated bezel and alligator leather strap. The exhibition back provides a chance to view its in-house mechanical self-winding movement: Perrelet Caliber P-331.
The standout originality of the watch lies in the dial, on which the customary blades of Perrelet’s iconic Turbine model have been replaced by a black gold-tipped sheriff’s star. As it turns, the latter reveals a humoristic inscription on the under-dial in reference to the great American Western movies.
This timepiece thereby pays a highly original tribute to the founder, Abraham-Louis Perrelet, pioneer of the self-winding movement in 1777, to whom the brand owes its innovative character and its avant-garde spirit.
“Only Watch” unites around 40 renowned watch brands that each donate a one-of-a-kind creation to the auction on behalf of the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy (AMM) created by parents of children affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The 6th edition of this biennial charity auction will take place on November 2015 in Geneva.
Prior to that, the first leg of the collection’s promotional world tour will be held at the heart of the flagship Monaco Yacht Show from September 23rd to 26th and then followed by an itinerary including stop-overs in Europe, the United States and Asia.
