This Special Edition from Perrelet elegantly reveals the emblem of its motherland, with the dial decorated with the Swiss flag. With this new addition Perrelet pays homage to its rich heritage both in terms of its history and its watchmaking expertise.
The 12-blade turbine rotating freely over the dial plays with optical effects to suggest a white cross floating above the Swiss-red background. The Turbine Helvetia proudly celebrates Switzerland as the realm of prestige watchmaking. In 2012, the brand designed its own Swiss made calibre, the exclusive Alternance 10 (A10) which was designed in-house. This innovative movement is used to power all of the timepieces from the Turbine collection.
The Turbine Helvetia honours this calibre with two elegant cases, one in black DLC-coated steel and the other in diamond-set steel, nestled on straps in matching colours that have been superbly crafted from crocodile skin. Red top-stitching discreetly echoes the colour of the dial. The movement, visible through the sapphire crystal case back, is decorated with traditional Côtes de Genève.
The Turbine Helvetia Special Edition is available in two refined, standard-bearing models: a men's version featuring a black 44-millimetre diameter case, and a deliberately feminine version with a diameter of 38 millimetres and a bezel set with 60 diamonds.
