Swiss watch manufacture Perrelet expands its emblematic Turbine collection with the new “Chrono Sport”, a model which celebrates the world of football.
Its unique Turbine technology, first developed by the manufacturer in 2009, and quickly recognized as icon of the brand, took a step forward with its first Turbine chronograph in 2013. In 2017, the Manufacture is unveiling a 77-piece limited edition new version of the Turbine Chrono, the “Chrono Sport”, with a more modern and contemporary look. At Perrelet, the “7” is a recurring number with an emotional resonance for the company as a reminder of 1777, the year the company was founded.
The Turbine Chrono offers an interesting innovation in the design of the chronograph. Perrelet’s technicians and designers have succeeded in bringing together an astounding new aesthetics while ensuring excellent legibility of the chronographic functions, all without obscuring the distinctive identity of this collection.
The black PVD steel case, with its generous 47mm diameter, shows the typical fluted case band, a signature feature of the Turbine collections and includes a tachymetric scale on its bezel. A second version, also only available as a limited edition of 77 pieces, offers more discrete grey details (ref. A1079/2) instead of the bright red ones. Both models are equipped with the P-361 automatic movement offering a 42-hour power reserve and a water resistance to 5 ATM.
The Turbine Chrono Sport comes with a bi-material strap in black nylon with rubber lining and red or grey stitching, depending on the version. The folding black PVD steel buckle is decorated with the Perrelet logo.
