Dubai, India (PressExposure) September 25, 2012 -- Lined up on the starting grid are a series of new watches from the Turbine Racing collection. There are two teams on the track: the Turbine, equipped with a 44 mm-diameter case, and the 50 mm Turbine XL.
Colour takes pole position, with bold shades vividly expresÂ¬sing the sporting spirit of Perrelet's most iconic timepie-ces. Red, yellow, blue and white, inspired by the gleaming bodywork of racing cars, take over the rubber straps. The chromatic impact is accentuated by the additional colour accent on the inner bezel ring on which the hours are indicaÂ¬ted by luminescent Arabic numerals. Further nuances are provided by the fan-shaped line pattern adorning the dial, beneath the 12-blade turbine. The passing of time is indiÂ¬cated by luminescent hour and minute hands, as well as a central second's hand.
When the turbine swings into action, the original effect produced on the dial immediately generates an emotional reaction, as the mechanical technology of the double rotor continues to surprise observers by its great simplicity.
The Turbine Racing collection by Perrelet features DLC-treated steel cases in red, blue and yellow versions, while the incomparable design is naturally further enhanced by the pure gleam of steel in the stunning white variations all of which are available in either, 44 or 50 mm diameter. -End-
