Perrelet is a Swiss watch brand, associated with Abraham-Louis Perrelet who in the 18th century invented a pocket watch mechanism that today can be found in wristwatches. Perrelet as a watch brand was acquired by Miguel Rodriguez (Festina Group) and since then has begun promoting its timepieces with a marketing campaign that draws a line from the the 18th century heritage to modern timepieces. Among the more popular Perrelet men's watches are the Perrelet Double Rotor, Perrelet Class-T, Perrelet Chronograph, Perrelet Classic. The Perrelet women's watches collection includes Perrelet Double Rotor ladies, Perrelet Classic ladies. Perrelet watches for sale and Perrelet watches prices can be found at certified retailers. The Perrelet Turbine watch, Perrelet Seacraft and Perrelet First Class are included in our watch database among many other similar timepieces, all with Perrelet watches prices.
