Child­hood dreams

Per­relet brings back dreams of the Old West with its Tur­bine Sher­iff

Virtuozity - - Watch News -

With its Tur­bine Sher­iff watch ex­clu­sively cre­ated for the Only Watch char­ity auc­tion, Per­relet is invit­ing watch afi­ciona­dos to re­live their child­hood dreams of want­ing to be an Old West sher­iff.

For all those who enjoy in­dulging in a bit of nostal­gia, Per­relet has cre­ated a one-of-a-kind Tur­bine Sher­iff watch. It stands out with its 48mm-di­am­e­ter pink gold case mid­dle cre­at­ing a strik­ing con­trast with the black Pvd-coated bezel and al­li­ga­tor leather strap. The ex­hi­bi­tion back pro­vides a chance to view its in-house me­chan­i­cal self-wind­ing move­ment: Per­relet Cal­iber P-331.

The orig­i­nal­ity of the watch lies in the dial, on which the cus­tom­ary blades of Per­relet’s iconic Tur­bine model have been re­placed by a black gold-tipped sher­iff’s star. As it turns, the lat­ter re­veals a hu­moris­tic in­scrip­tion on the un­der-dial in ref­er­ence to the great western movies.

This time­piece thereby pays a highly orig­i­nal trib­ute to the founder, Abra­ham-louis Per­relet, pioneer of the self-wind­ing move­ment in 1777, to whom the brand owes its in­no­va­tive char­ac­ter and its avant-garde spirit.

Only Watch unites around 40 renowned watch brands that each do­nate a oneof-a-kind cre­ation to the auc­tion on be­half of the Monaco As­so­ci­a­tion against Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy (AMM) cre­ated by par­ents of chil­dren af­fected by Duchenne mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy.

The sixth edi­tion of this bi­en­nial char­ity auc­tion will take place on Novem­ber 2015 in Geneva. Prior to that, the first leg of the col­lec­tion’s pro­mo­tional world tour was held at the Monaco Yacht Show.
