Perrelet continues its whimsical designs with the Turbine double-rotor
watches. A beautiful tribute to the yesteryears art of erotica watches.
Novices will be caught unawares by the crafty workmanship that makes the
design visible to only those aware of the trick required to display the
titillating images. If not the graphics remain a mystery behind lock
and key. Four exquisite designs are featured on the dial from
Japanese inspired cartoons laid beneath the 12-blade Turbine wheel
typical of the Turbine Collections. The designs are hidden from view and
magic can only be viewed after kick starting the wheel with a few
powerful shakes. The cumulative effect is like watching the iridescent
image of an old stag movie.
Perrelet’s foray into this niche is focused on a very specific genre known as hentai, a kind of Japanese Manga aimed at adults only. Manga style is deeply linked with Japanese based comics and anime. Anime is typically characterized by stylized colourful art and often adult themes which have been used by Perrelet beautifully in this collection. A very racy design created in black and white, with just a hint of red. Perrelet Turbine Erotic is not for the easily offended, "nor safe for work”, but definitely a conversation starter for that night out in town. The spinning Turbine rotor makes for a sensational appealing visual effect.
The round shaped case, 44 mm in diameter, made of either a black Diamond like Carbon treated with stainless steel or a titanium one with a thickness of 12.50 MM. Polished finished bezel & satin add the finishing touches to the case. Numerals in Arabic, a red second hand and a blackened hour and minutes hand with luminous fill make up the dial. Anti-glare sapphire crystals fixed at the front and back finish the look.
Equipped with Perrelet Caliber P-181 automatic movement, beating at 28,800 vph it has a power reserve of approximately 40 hours. Black rubber with folding clasps of DLC-coated steel make for the straps. The timepieces are water resistant up to 50M. Each of the four variations is limited to 88 timepieces.
Price – USD 6,150.
