PERRELET INTRODUCES THE NEW WEEKEND GMT
The WEEKEND line is faithful to the values of the Swiss brand: excellence in manufacturing, in keeping with the standards of Swiss watchmaking tradition in both the technique and the decorations and finishing. In tribute to the master watchmaker who founded the brand in 1777, Abraham Louis Perrelet, the inventor of the automatic movement, the WEEKEND collection is equipped with a mechanical self-winding movement offering 42-hour power reserve, and made right in the heart of the Swiss manufacture.
The WEEKEND GMT comes in addition to the “3 Hands” and “3 Hands Open Heart” models and features the practical function of the second time zone.
Its silver sun-brushed dial is sober and pure in its aesthetics, offering optimal legibility of the GMT 24-hour function thanks to the central hand with a triangular red tip on the inner polished ring with Arabic numerals. The date window at 3 o’clock completes the indications provided by the watch.
Easy to use, all the functions are simply adjusted through the single crown, including the GMT indication (crown in second position).
The WEEKEND GMT as well as the other two product lines come in a steel or PVD 4N stainless steel case, endowing them with the typical reflection of rose gold and waterproof up to 5 ATM. The dimensions are ideal (39 mm in diameter and 9.56 mm in thickness), and the perfect size for a classical casual or smart model, for daily wear or special occasions alike.
The dial, protected by an anti-reflective treated sapphire glass, is proposed – according the different collections – in the following colours: classic silver and white but also black and charcoal- grey. The hands match the same colour as the case, with the exception of the WEEKEND Hands ref. A1300/3, whose indexes
and hands are blue on a white “face”.
The WEEKEND 3 Hands Open Heart model brings special emphasis on watchmaking technology, enabling micromechanics lovers to admire the heart of this piece, as the regulating organ is visible thanks to an opening at 6 o’clock.
All the timepieces of the WEEKEND collections are equipped with Perrelet in-house automatic calibres: P-401 for the GMT, P-321 for the 3 Hands and P-391 for the 3 Hands Open Heart, providing a power reserve of 42 hours. The transparent case back allows to admire the finely-decorated movement and the new oscillating weight.
There are numerous finishes for the oscillating mass and a well executed decoration with vertical stripes in the middle, conjuring up the effect of sunrays. The laser-engraved Perrelet logo in the middle of the oscillating weight, brings up the P logo among horizontal stripes.
The leather strap with an alligator finish, in black or brown, has a personalised pin buckle with the Perrelet logo, whose finish matches the cases of the WEEKEND collection.
