With the new limited edition "Turbine Rooster" timepiece, Swiss luxury watch maker Perrelet pays tribute to the Chinese New Year that begins on 28 January 2017 under the sign of the Rooster.
The major highlight of this new timepiece is the turbine with its 12 anodised aluminium blades, finely decorated with the twelve signs of the Chinese horoscope. These are engraved - in matching tones - either figuratively or in Chinese characters. 2017 is the year of the Rooster, and the Rooster stands out in a brilliant red on the 6 o’clock blade.
The rotation of the Turbine reveals a red sub-dial livened up by the Rooster Zodiac sign in Chinese characters, made out of 5N rose gold PVD with a profile outlined in black.
Produced in a limited edition of 100 timepieces, the individual serial number is engraved on the case-back of each Turbine Rooster. The watch comes with a black rubber bracelet and a steel folding clasp with black PVD coating and Perrelet logo.
