The automatic movement forms an integral part of Perrelet’s history as its founder, Abraham-Louis Perrelet, was the precursor in this type of winding mechanism. It comes as no surprise, then, to see the brand pay a permanent tribute to one of the great inventions in mechanical watchmaking. With blades that spin with the movements of the wrist, the Turbine has become a symbol of the brand. Endlessly fascinating, this namesake feature fulfils every watchmaker’s dream as it renders each model immediately recognisable. This year’s GMT version proposes a second time zone that is set by the crown. When the turbine dial is spinning at full speed, a transparency effect reveals a plate which is decorated with Côtes de Genève and engraved with a map of the world. The traveller’s ideal watch.
