The success of the Perrelet
Diamond Flower watch from last year has spurred a few new models for the 2010. The fun and beautiful watch is now in steel and ceramic, again with available diamonds. The best part of the watch is the flower segment on the dial that spins around the face when you move the watch. It is connected to the rotor on the rear of the automatic watch movement. In addition to looking cool, this system allows the movement to wind about 40% faster.
The new cases in ceramic are 40mm wide and supplemented by some new colors in the steel case. One such color is baby blue, and you can see an image of that when you click READ MORE below. Ceramic is a hot material, and it is available in black and white. The bezel treatment is interesting. You have diamonds, or a pattern of engraved Perrelet logos. There are diamonds on the dials of the models though, and the dial is a beautiful mother of pearl. Flowers being the theme of the watch, the hands, hour indicators, and segments on the dial all appear as leaves or petals. The watch is matched to a ceramic bracelet or unique textured rubber strap.
The Eve is a less expensive model. It is more straight forward in design with an easy to read dial, still in ceramic. No diamonds or mother of pearl here, just a good looking case that emphasizes the flower and feminine theme.
The Diamond Flower watches have a Perrelet P-181 automatic double rotor movement, while the Eve has a P-261 automatic movement. Both pretty impressive watches from a design and feature standpoint that will make any woman happy. Prices for the Eve watches are about $3,200, while the Diamond Flower Ceramic will range from about 4,650 - 8,400. Look for them soon.
