Perrelet’s Split-seconds Chronograph “Louis-Frédéric” is a tribute to the founder’s grandson. Some History here: Louis-Frédéric emigrated to Paris towards the end of the 18th century, became watchmaker to three successive kings of France, won competitions and in 1827 applied for a patent for his invention – the split-seconds chronograph counter, which also received an award from the Academy of Sciences in Paris. Almost two centuries later, Perrelet is reinterpreting this complication in two exceptional versions: one in white and pink gold limited to 50 pieces; the other in white gold in a limited series of 27. The movement is automatic (Perrelet P-241 calibre, 28,800 vib/h, 25 rubies, 46-hour power reserve)
