PEREN SOD (Son of the Dragon) Collection

After the successful funding of its first Kickstarter campaign, Transylvania based watch brand PEREN now announces its new collection, the Son of the Dragon. As the name suggests, this new collection is a tribute to the greatest Transylvanian Prince, Vlad Dracula, Son of the Dragon.
Just pre-launched on online crowd funding platform Kickstarter, the PEREN SOD collection offers luxurious yet accessible line of Swiss made watches.
Inspired from the Transylvanian tradition and mythology, and designed under the guidance of award winning Swiss designers, the PEREN SOD boasts some remarkable features that make this timepiece stands out from the crowd.
Highlighted with mesmerising red details, the double layered black metallic dial of the watch features two hemicycles at 12’o clock and 6’o clock with windows for both the date window as well as the moon-phase indicator. This unique design takes its inspiration from the medieval Transylvanian castles.
The center of the main dial boasts a bat shaped inner dial featuring horizontal line pattern inspired by the Transylvanian mythology. Here, we can see two small counters; one for small seconds and another for chronograph 30 minutes, and both have red hands. A central red hand functions as the chronograph 60 seconds hand. The dark gun PVD hour and minute hands at the centre of the main dial are also highlighted with red colour.
Apart from the basic timekeeping and chronograph functions, the PEREN SOD boasts a revolutionary moon-phase indicator at 6’o clock inspired by the astronomical phenomenon of Blood Moon and a date window at 12’o clock.
The SOD Logo is inspired by the same representation of a Dragon at the house where Vlad Dracula was born in the city of Sighisoara, Transylvania.
Crafted in surgical grade stainless steel and tested for water resistance up to 5 ATM, the 40mm diameter case of the PEREN SOD houses the Swiss Made ISA 8171 Movement. With its patented double rotor motor and central chronograph trotteuse with five steps per second, this movement operates similar to an automatic or mechanical movement, giving a smooth motion to the unique chronograph central hand with the counterweight logo harmoniously aligned with the Peren, Transylvania inscription.
The brand has recently pre-launched the Son of the Dragon collection through a Kickstarter campaign and by backing the project the customers can pre-order the timepiece of their choice. Kickstarter price starts from $299 CAD with an estimated delivery of the product on June 2016.
