When the Perrelet Turbine watch collection first came out more than 6 years ago, it was a hit. While there have been new models out each year, one of the most interesting ones is this new Perrelet Turbine Skeleton watch. The novel spinning dial themed on jet engine turbines hit a sweet spot with collectors looking for novel sport-style watches.
The case of Perrelet Turbine watch is 44m wide, which makes it a sort of mid-range sized Perrelet Turbine model. You have many of the traditional elements such as the PVD black-coated bezel and little "claws" on the bezel as well.
The case also has a sort of hidden crown at 3 o'clock. It isn't so much hidden, actually, as inset into the side of the case. The crown of the Perrelet Turbine watch has a small fold-out handle which you can use to manually wind the watch as well Perrelet Turbine watch as pull out the crown to adjust the time. The smooth, graceful lines of the Perrelet Turbine watch case have always been nice, and I feel that this timepiece collection still represents an appealing and distinctive look.
Of course, the main attraction is the dial, and what is special about the Perrelet Turbine watch is the "skeleton" part. Essentially, the dial has been removed and the mechanism can been seen through the spinning turbine blades. When spinning quickly, the visual effect is to see the movement easily, and when moving more slowly, the wearer can see a hint of the Perrelet Turbine poker movement operating between the other elements of the dial. Yes, the Perrelet Turbine watch concept is simple, but it is actually rather satisfying as well.
Despite the playful and busy nature of the Perrelet Turbine dial, Perrelet watch continues to ensure that legibility is something high on their priority list. The hands have wide sections of Perrelet Turbine xl luminant and the hour markers are incredibly bold given the overall theme of the dial. As you can see, the hour markers and hands exist on a plane over the spinning turbine blades, which is why legibility is so well maintained.
The Perrelet Turbine watch isn't a watch everyone needs, but it should be a watch that at least some people want. There is a huge amount of competition out there, and while the Perrelet Turbine collection along with these Perrelet Turbine watches Perrelet Turbine review have a tough fight, there is certainly room for them. In addition to this comfy leather strap there is, of course, a rubber strap option as well.
