New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Perrelet pursues its playful explorations on the possibilities afforded by its emblematic double-rotor watches, in their Turbine version. Through manga-style creations, it evokes the time-honoured art of erotic watches, which first emerged 200 years ago and were quickly nicknamed “conversation pieces” because of the lively discussions they aroused. These new themes are indeed worthy of the ancestral craftsmanship skills they embody, while remaining almost invisible for anyone unaware of the trick required to display them.
Specially designed for this special edition, one of four scenes displaying typical characters from Japanese cartoons fills the entire surface of the dial, beneath the characteristic 12-blade wheel of the Turbine collection – and can theoretically be viewed only in parts, unless… the wheel is moving at great speed. To get the magic going, it has to be kickstarted with a few powerful gesticulations. Otherwise, it remains a closely guarded secret. Created in black and white, with a touch of red, the original paintings are inspired by hentai, a well-known Manga genre for adults.
The special Turbine Erotic series consists of eight 88-piece limited series, with 44mm diameter cases in titanium or DLC-coated steel for each dial option.
