In 1729 Abraham-Louis Perrelet was born in the Neuchatel mountain region of Switzerland. Passionately interested in watchmaking skills, he devoted himself from his adolescence onward to building a certain number of precision instruments. His impressive mastery of his art, his acknowledged competence and his creative genius are to make him one of the greatest ever exponents of the art of horology. In the 1770s and onward, he worked on developing a system that can pick up an initial impulse and keep it running indefinitely, the start of the automatic movement. He also developed the first pedometer and improves the train, pinions, wheels and escapement - and his unique winding mechanism.
Impelled by the dynamism of its pioneering spirit, Perrelet delivers distinctive pleasure to the owners of its rigorously mechanical, resolutely contemporary and absolutely innovative watches. The inventor of automatic winding in 1777, the House of Perrelet masters all the components of the mechanical movements made within the walls of its Manufacture.
For Perrelet, Fine Watchmaking is a universe of both hand and mind, in which creativity is expressed through rigorous execution, and in which preserving a tradition means continuing and innovating. A universe built on daring inventions, on family talent perpetuated through the ages and expressed in prestigious watchmaking creations. Perrelet is synonymous with inventiveness, authenticity and quality. Our vision of the product leads us to opt for technical developments which are based on reliable calibres. Perrelet perpetuates its illustrious heritage of artistry, craftsmanship and technical prowess with exclusively mechanical self-winding watches. Perrelet's watches add to the prestige of fine watchmaking with models that are eminently true to the company's history and identity. The authenticity of the brand is evidenced by the standard features such as the double rotor, turbine, lugs, fluted patterns, and cut out rotors.
