The oft talked about Perrelet Turbine watch collection gets its first ladies model with Turbine XS. It looks to use the original Perrelet Turbine case that was about 43mm wide – though it could be smaller. The case is in either steel or titanium and DLC black coated. The design is a fascinating mixture between sport and luxury. With the spinning dial turbine allowing diamonds set on the dial to flash with movement of the wrist. More diamonds are set in the bezel and on the lugs. Instead of the original rubber strap a satin one is used.
The black on black dial is sporty for sure, but the diamonds are formal. I just can’t figure out what to call the watch (sporty or something else) – though I think the type of woman who likes wearing aviator gloves with high heels will pull this timepiece off smashingly. The movement is a Swiss made automatic. The watch will be officially debuted soon.
