Le Locle town, lost in the mountainous part of Switzerland, gave the world two great Parrelets at once: a scientist, inventor, genial watchmaker Abraham-Louis, who created authentic Perrelet watches, as well as his grandson and the best pupil Louis-Frederic. Being only 20 years old in 1749 Abraham-Louis invented tools, which helped to reach a maximal accuracy while watch production. Experienced masters turned to him, a very young watch maker, for help and he shared his discoveries with them with pleasure. And they did are revolutionary: he invented a rotor and automatic oscillator – and all this was done at the time, when watches were wound with a key yet! The grandson of the renowned master made a unique luxurious Perrelet brand famous too. In 1815 Louis-Frederic Perrelet was awarded for the invention of the first astronomic watch. After this he was invited to be a court watchmaker and he did that, he has been successfully serving French kings for many years. Due to Louis’s talent the world has received a split-chronograph, which allows fixing and if necessary comparing 2 periods of time at the same time, it is successfully used in sports contests today as well.
In 1993 the company of genuine Perrelet watches gained a new lease of life – it was revived by Flavio Audemars, who set a task to produce only mechanic watches with automatic oscillator and only on the territory of their motherland – Switzerland. Now it is important to know for the person, who decided to buy original Perrelet watches, that there is a chapter in the statute of company that obliges release only a restricted number of exemplars of each collection and implement innovations in every new model. 1995 was a sign year for the brand: a system of double rotor was developed and implemented in Turbine watches. It supposes presence of one more rotor on the dial apart from a familiar rotor in the mechanism. Connected with an axis and wheel system rotors rotate simultaneously making an unsurpassed effect. Except for this, they stabilize a system of winding making it even more reliable. Revolutionary novelty was appreciated and they received a high title of the Watch of the Year. The company is proud of one more its know-how – exclusive design of the mechanisms entitled “Perrelet Gobelin”. The admirers of the brand are attracted with a wide spectrum of the price for Perrelet watches.
Given credit to the great discovery of the brand founders the company produced several limited series of golden split-chronographs, besides there isn’t any watch, where the décor of the dial has any repetitions being designed by hands. Seacraft collection will undoubtedly encourage the lovers of diving and adventures to buy wrist watches Parrelet for the best price, as these gorgeous steel watches with indices and hands covered with luminescent substance have a protected screwed oscillator, a huge sapphire glass (4 mm), toothed diver bezel and waterproofness up to 777 meters.
A real pearl of the brand was the watch created on the basics of Turbine line – a renowned Double Rotor Turbine, which was first represented in 2009 at BaselWorld. The theme of two rotors is performed here perfectly – at the easiest movement of the hand a decorative rotor begins to rotate with double titanium blades over colorful rays of the dial creating an incredibly impressive image. There is a surprising optical effect: the indices on the dial with the moving rotor become even more distinct and expressive. In 2012 a mechanism produced by the manufacture started to work in the model Peripheral Double Rotor, and in 2015 the last collection First Class Double Rotor Skeleton was created to honor the 20th anniversary of the double rotor. The company, which produces status wrist Parrelet watches, continues to please those ones, who like extravagance and revolutionary aesthetic findings and perfectly follows a renowned principle “traditions plus innovations”.
