Perrelet presents the Turbine Yacht collection, a new watch line that will prove an excellent seagoing companion, combining Perrelet’s famous Turbine with a function stemming from the maritime world: the windrose. The Turbine Yacht, an evolved version of the Turbine Diver model, combines within a single watch the aesthetic and ornamental design codes of the most prestigious ships.
The 47 mm-diameter steel case of the Turbine Yacht, water-resistant to 300 meters, comes in several colors thanks to a black or bronze-toned PVD coating. The dial is enlivened by a titanium turbine featuring 11 blades reminiscent of a submarine propeller, rotating above a resolutely marine-themed décor of parallel lines evoking the teakwood decking of a yacht. The under-dial is further enhanced by a central metal applique. The Turbine Yacht will thus offer the possibility of keeping to the set course and following a given direction thanks to the integrated windrose function. Simply taking a few points of reference and orientation from the position of the sun will be enough to deduce the various cardinal directions.
The Turbine Diver collection comprises four models with a 47 mm-diameter steel case, water-resistant to 30 atmospheres, some of them bearing a black PVD coating. The inner rotating bezel ring serves to take easy immersion-time measurements and provides a highly legible display on a 20-minute segment by means of a play on colors and volumes. This function is controlled via a screw-locked crown at 10 o’clock that prevents inadvertent handling while diving. On the Diver line, the 11-blade titanium turbine spins freely over an under-dial coated with Superluminova, which glows and diffuses a vivid color in the underwater darkness. Superluminova also covers the Arabic numerals, the main hour-markers as well as the subtly black-rimmed hours and minutes hands.
The Turbine Yacht and Turbine Diver collections are driven by the exclusive P-331 caliber, entirely produced in the Perrelet workshops. This movement oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 42-hour power reserve.
