The Perrelet name is renowned for the invention the automatic winding mechanism by Abraham Louis Perrelet and the split-second chronograph by his son Louis-Frederic. Abraham Louis Perrelet was a talented inventor and watchmaker who completed his final masterpiece at the ripe age of 96.
Louis-Frederic Perrelet was a watchmaker to three Kings of France and studied under Breguet. Their influence appears present in the company's current line, re-launched in 2005 with heavily decorated rotors, complex mechanisms and an impressive eye for detail...... Abraham-Louis Perrelet was the first to innovate the energy supply of a movement with the invention of the first automatic winding system based on the motion of the wearer. Thus, Energy and Motion are two key pillars of the brand.
They can be found for instance in the dynamic design of the Titanium collection or in the use of the exclusive Double Rotor winding system. This "energetic" spirit is especially evident in the Diamond Flower collection; here for the first time in traditional watchmaking, mechanical motion has been married with jewelry, thus creating the first truly symbiotic relationship of its kind. Today Perrelet is also synonymous with inventiveness, authenticity and quality.Positioning itself in the "smart luxury" sector, Perrelet largely favors extremely reliable base calibres upon which interesting and useful additional functions and complications are added. Due to its industrial base, the company is able to appeal and satisfy the expectations even of the most avid watch connoisseur.........

This particular model, Perrelet GMT 24 City World Timer A1023 in polished coined ribbing Stainless Steel tonneau case measuring 38x35mm diameter, has an excellent design and is very beautiful. I love the tonneau shaped case and the guilloche dial. I especially like the Roman numerals and the way they graduate in size around the center of the dial where the inner seconds "ring" begins. The dial is exceptionally well balanced. The precision work carried out on the dials offers owners clear legibility. Also, the large date display is very easy to see, and the GMT subdial design is simple and user-friendly, eliminating all possible confusion. A simple push of the button is all it takes to set of the scrolling of the main cities, representing the 24 time-zones of the world and their corresponding times.
