The famous double rotor, which Perrelet patented in 1995, is no longer reserved for men’s watches with the introduction of the Diamond Flower Amytis. Original, precious and enchanting, it puts Perrelet’s hallmark firmly on the women’s watch segment.

The Swiss watchmaker Perrelet stands out through the originality of its dial enlivened by the Double Rotor function patented in 1995 that has become a signature feature. This particular model now admirably embodies its expertise in highlighting both watchmaking techniques and artistic crafts.

Launched last year in black or white dial versions, the Double Rotor Amytis appears clothed in delicate shades such as ivory or blue. This watch with its 36.5 mm-diameter case is equipped with Manufacture Caliber P-181-H, an automatic Double Rotor movement. One of its twin oscillating weights is visible on the dial side, while the rotation of the perfectly synchronized rotors drives the barrels and ensures more efficient winding.

The dial-side oscillating weight is an authentic work of art involving several artisan-style skills. The finely crafted petals and leaves are expertly cut out, rhodium-plated, sandblasted and decorated with precious materials such as diamonds (16 totaling 0.067cts) and mother-of-pearl, thereby endowing this rotor – an important component of automatic movements – with great originality.
