Perrelet Automatic Tourbillon Titanium Watch
With what could be described as a very Jaquet Droz inspired dial layout, the face of this watch has an off-center dial with a large, nicely made tourbillon serving as the small seconds. No nonsense gold colored hour markers are both aggressive and classy, while the splash of carbon fiber tells you that this is a less sensitive watch. Inside the 42mm wide case with its sandwiched titanium and smooth gold bezel and back, an automatic Perrelet caliber P161 runs with a massive 110 hours of power reserve. Really nice to have that type of power life as well as automatic winding. Lastly, it is certified as a chronometer, something less than average for a tourbillon based timepiece.
While the watch looks effortlessly marketable, it is in a limited edition of just 20 pieces. This does sort of make sense since the market for ultra-expensive complex sport watches is still niche to say the least. A rubber strap, double anti reflective coating on the sapphire crystal and 50 meters of water resistance make this an all too tempting investment to get dirty.
