Perrelet : Perpetual calendar/2009
Perrelet offers a remarkable Perpetual Calendar in 18ct pink gold.
The imposing 43.5mm case is notable for the elegance of its dynamic design, whose quality of finish extends equally to the embellishment of the movement. The Perrelet P-251 automatic movement with Perpetual Calendar, moonphase and Chronograph bears the signature of the brand. The oscillating weight, set with a glass, whose design is patented by Perrelet, enables one to see the angled bridges decorated with the "P".
The openwork black dial features a tinted glass with luminous indexes. A disc at 3 o’clock displays the phases of the moon. The counter at 6 o’clock indicates the days, at 9 o’clock the months and leap years, while at 12 o’clock the date is displayed as well as the small seconds hand.
The mechanism of the movement automatically takes into account the varying length of the months and the leap years. The functions associated with the chronograph are indicated by two small hands at 6 o’clock for the hours and at 9 o’clock for the minutes.
