Resurrected only six year ago, when the brand was sold to Miguel Perrelet Moonphase Rodriguez of the Festina Group, Perrelet watch is doing its best to reestablish itself as a haute horlogerie watchmaker.
Of course, they still use third-party calibers to power their Perrelet watches. However, those are unique, built to specs jobs, and, truth be told, at this time their timepieces are the most elegant Perrelet Moonphase review and bright among the second-tier players.
The Perrelet Moonphase watch was introduced a year ago at Basel 2009 industry event. Unlike most moonphase watches that allot to the complication a pretty modest part of the dial, the Perrelet Moonphase watch does just the opposite: the huge white disk that represents the moon takes more real estate on the dial than an average moonphase subdial as a whole and it travels its path across the star-stricken sky from 9 to 3 o'clock.
In fact, the first thing that you notice while perrelet big central moonphase stealing a glance of the Perrelet Moonphase watch, is the complication, not the dial itself or even the hour and minute hands. Maybe, trying to partly to subdue the complication, Perrelet decided to present the 2010 model with new, much more energetic and aggressive-looking dial. While the first versions of the Perrelet Moonphase watch featured rather classic, almost Barocco-styled, faces, the new iteration of the timekeeper introduces a Perrelet Moonphase ladies completely reworked dial that looks very organic, almost like an extension of the brand's trademark case.
Just like the Chopard L.U.C Lunar Big Date chronometer watch, the Perrelet Moonphase watch's movement sports a moon-bearing disk with whole 135 teeth. The rotor is perfectly visible through a transparent display back of the Perrelet Moonphase watch, which is covered with an AR-treated mineral glass.
Well, while the antiglare coating is truly welcomed here, the Perrelet Moon phase watch brand that is positioned as a competitor for such ultra-premium names as Ulysse Nardin, Chronoswiss, Hublot, and Zenith should have spent a couple of dollars more and ordered a sapphire crystal, which is less prone to scratches and looks better in general. The Perrelet Moonphase watch is delivered in a 43.5 mm titanium case with its sapphire crystal slightly tinted to provide even more mesmerizing view at the slow progress of the moon disk across the night sky. The sporty timepiece also features a black rubber strap with a titanium deployment buckle.
