YouTube via HouseOfRam — April 15, 2010 — "The Perrelet watch collection for 2010, as shown at BaselWorld 2010. Their models include the Turbine, Double Rotor, Retrograde Hour, Moonphase, Split-Seconds Chronograph, Tourbillon and Repeater versions.
Abraham-Louis Perrelet, a Swiss watchmaker, invented a self-winding mechanism in 1770 for pocket watches.The Geneva Society of Arts reported in 1776 that fifteen minutes walking was necessary to wind the watch sufficiently for eight days. Perrelet is thus widely acknowledged as the inventor of the 'automatic' movement.
The factory claims to have been in continuous production since the late eighteenth century. The brand, acquired in 2004 by Miguel Rodriguez of the Festina Group, has recently (2007) appointed Marc Bernhardt as CEO of Perrelet, and under his direction the company has released a few highly regarded watches.
These include watches with retrograde, jumping hour, and double-rotor complications. In terms of pricing, Bernhardt has positioned Perrelet in the lower middle of the luxury market, with most of their recent releases priced between five and ten thousand (US) dollars. Their upper-range watches featuring costlier complications, such as tourbillons or minute-repeaters, typically retail in the thirty to forty thousand (US) dollar range.
