At Baselworld 2013, Perrelet added to its flagship Turbine collection of double-rotor timepieces with the line’s first tourbillon watch — in this case, cleverly spelled “Turbillon.” The new watch is among the 60+ new watches covered in our September-October issue, on sale August 27. Click here for a video showing the Turbillon and its spinning rotor blades in action.
The Perrelet Turbillon ($75,500) solves the main problem posed by its dial-side turbine rotor — that its “blades” would cover up the tableau of the tourbillon at 12 o’clock — by crafting the blades from transparent sapphire.
