What time is it in snow-covered Manhattan when you wake up in the heat of Cape Town? What time is it in Moscow, Tokyo, Shanghai, Paris…? The question is now redundant. Or rather, the answer is now simple.
Perrelet is launching the Turbine GMT, a watch with a traveller’s soul equipped with a dual time-zone function.
The hand indicating the second time zone is adjusted using the crown, as are the hour hands, to ensure user-friendly functionality.
Steel was the obvious choice for this sporty, contemporary watch. Beneath a sapphire crystal, the generous 44 mm diameter case houses the famous bladed dial of the Turbine collection. An original 3D effect transports you to the very heart of the watch, where a turbine in blue or black anodized aluminum reveals, with each movement of the wrist, an under-dial decorated with Côtes de Genève and delicately engraved with a map of the world. The sapphire crystal dial features a series of Arabic numerals and applied hour-markers.
The watch is driven by the automatic Manufacture P-401 calibre, which can be admired through the transparent case back and provides a power reserve of 42 hours. The Turbine GMT is available in four versions: classic black or on-trend Pacific blue, with either a matching rubber strap or an alligator strap.
