Since it was established, Perrelet has produced nothing but mechanical watches. Abraham-Louis Perrelet and his grandson Louis-Frédéric changed the course of watchmaking with their respective inventions: the automatic movement and the split-seconds chronograph. The Double Rotor, introduced in 1995, remains a signature of the brand to this day. Perrelet continues to "do different" with original, out-of-the-box thinking and futuristic designs.
Birth of watchmaker Abraham-Louis Perrelet.
Invention of the Double Rotor: a dial-side rotor is synchronised with a second rotor under the movement.
The brand pursued its development under its new owner, the Festina group.
Launch of the Turbine collection in which the Double Rotor is redesigned as twelve titanium blades, inspired by gas turbine engines on planes.
