Ariel Sexton is born in Vancouver (Canada) and raised in Costa Rica. Perrelet, a name bound up with the origins of the automatic movement, is founded on a proud horological tradition faithfully perpetuated since 1777. The Swiss-based Maison offers devotees of fine watchmaking a range of exclusively mechanical and impeccable finished timepieces. The Swiss watchmaker Perrelet stands out by the originality of its dials enlivened by the Double Rotor function patented in 1995 that has become a signature feature and which is proposed in different variation.
As watch enthusiast Ariel “Tarzan” Sexton discovered some years ago the Perrelet brand at Hossli Jewelers, a selected and prestigious retailers of Perrelet in Costa Rica. He was immediately fascinated by a Turbine model. He lives in the USA and chose a Turbine XL America, a watch issued in a special 777-piece limited edition. The Turbine collection’s signature 12-blade wheel rotates over a dial painted with the red and the white stripes of the American Flag. As a very good “friend” and aficionado of Perrelet, Ariel regularly keeps an eye on the new creations the Swiss manufacture unveils each year.
