Diamond Flower Collection: A new Era in ladies’ watches

Perrelet as the inventor of the automatic movement* in 1777 (the invention by Abraham-Louis Perrelet: “A watch that winds itself”) is best known to watch connoisseurs the world over by its “mechanical prowess”. Automatic movements have always featured in all Perrelets including the entire ladies’ range. Particularly with ladies’ automatic watches Perrelet always believed that they are well suited for today’s active women. After all, the automatic timepiece tells the time and the active woman enables the watch to keep time. A perfectly symbiotic relationship! 

Perrelet has now created what can justly be called a new category of ladies’ watches by bringing together two previously distinct watch universes, i.e. that of Jewellery and that of Mechanical watchmaking. The raison d’être of jewellery has always been purely aesthetical. Now Perrelet has added an additional feature -Jewellery has virtually been put in motion to fulfil a mechanical purpose. The new Time Equation goes as follows: 

Functional Jewellery 
+ 
Mechanical Watchmaking 
= 
“Joaillerie Horlogère” 


Prior to his invention in 1777, all watches had to be wound by hand usually by means of a key. Abraham-Louis Perrelet was the first to use the natural energy provided by the movements of the timepiece’s wearer. His system is still in use today in all automatic watches, regardless of which brand. A so-called rotor or oscillating mass picks up this kinetic energy and transfers it by means of a gear train to the so-called barrel, which houses the mainspring. Abraham-Louis Perrelet would rightly be proud to see that his invention is still omnipresent in all of today’s automatic watches. 

 
DiamonD Flower DiamonD Flower 
Perrelet’s new Diamond Flower Collection qualifies as first of its kind for this new category. The Diamond Flower shaped piece of jewellery set on the dial is not only an eye catcher but rotates with the motion of its wearer and thus helps to wind the underlying automatic 
movement. This beautiful union is only made possible by using Perrelet’s exclusive Double Rotor calibre. Both perfectly synchronized rotors (one on the back and one the dial) provide ample power to store the motions of its wearer in the mainspring. The timepiece is thus guaranteed at all times a reliable source of power. 

There is another interesting aspect to Perrelet’s new Diamond Flower Collection. Contrary to many ladies’ watches that are designed by male designers, Per-relet deliberated chose a female designer. Carmen Voegeli, one of Perrelet’s young designers, was given the project to define the aesthetics of the Diamond Flower Collection. She virtually locked herself away 
for several months to work on this project. Her work is truly the combination of many hours of work and an intuitive, female way of creating a design made for women. This fact is perhaps not a first, but still a relatively rare occurrence in watch design. After all, who is better suited to meet the desires and wishes of today’s women, than a talented lady designer? 

The Diamond Flower Collection consists of a bouquet of 27 prêt-à-porter models with a choice, of steel, steel and rose gold (two-tone) and rose gold. Moreover, various diamond setting choices are perfectly combined with dial colours ranging from “snow white” to pure anthracite, thereby passing by a rich dark chocolate and a very trendy blue. The Diamond 
Flower rotor is studded with diamonds and is, according to the models, accompanied by sparkling rubies or sapphires. True to its philosophy to make readable dials, Perrelet has positioned petals on the dial so as to serve as perfect indices. The Diamond Flower timepieces are available either with natural rubber or alligator leather straps which provide the perfect frame for the case measuring 38mm in diameter. 

For distinct female collectors and those who demand the pinnacle in exclusivity, seven (7) unique pieces will be offered in the Rare Prestige Edition. These exceptional models haute couture have additional, extravagant settings with the rarest and most precious 
emeralds, sapphires and diamonds. Extravagant items for the discerned few...
