Building on its more than 230-year heritage, Perrelet offers a contemporary yet traditional form of watchmaking, while placing aesthetic purity in the service of mechanical beauty. Its classic First Class line is a perfect demonstration of this approach. For the first time, the curvaceous body of this model appears clothed in pink gold while revealing its mechanical heart. A true aesthetic signature of a timeless line, the case of the new First Class Skeleton Gold model is immediately recognizable by its fluted profile. Protected by a sapphire crystal, the equally distinctive dial featuring a finely grained and guilloché texture comes in a choice of black or white. At its center is a large hole through which one can admire the workings of the movement, transformed in this instance into dainty metal lacework.
