Perrelet Turbine Diver

I love how Perrelet incorporates a submarine’s propeller into the dial. It really boosts the dive watch feel.   The Turbine Diver comes in black or blue, with yellow or white trim.   It is powered by the Perrelet P-331 automatic double-rotor movement, a Soprod movement (exclusive to Perrelet).  Prices for the watch will be $6,550, or $7,200 for the DLC-finished case (significantly more scratch resistant).

Press Release:

The rounded contours of the 11-blade upper rotor subtly evoke a submarine propeller. Spinning freely above the SuperLuminova-coated surface, it creates the illusion of an entirely luminescent dial that naturally gains intensity at night or in the darkness prevailing at great depths. Dive times are measured by a rotating inner bezel ring on which the average 20-minute duration stands out clearly thanks to a play on colors and volumes. it is controlled by user friendly crown at 10 o’clock equipped with a locking system.

47.5mm steel case (DLC-coating optional), automatic mechanical Perrelet movement (double-rotor), internal rotating bezel

The Arabic numerals, the main hour-markers as well as the subtly black-rimmed hour and minutes hands are also coated in Superluminova, thus enabling them to stand out against the background when it is lit up by the effect of the turbine in motion. The strong personality of the Turbine Diver is accentuated by a 47.5 mm-diameter case water-resistant to 300 meters and designed especially for this model. The fluted caseband is distinguished by four “paws” straddling the bezel, and the integrated winding crown is offset at 4 o’clock symmetrically opposite its counterpart controlling the rotating bezel. The sapphire crystal set into the screw-in caseback provides an admirable view of the automatic P-331 movement developed on the basis of the new Manufacture-made Alternance 10 caliber with its Côtes de Genève motif. The Turbine Diver line is being launched in monochrome (steel) or two-tone (steel/black DLC-coated steel) cases framing a variety of colorful dials.
