Brand Review: Perrelet Watches
Abraham-Louis Perrelet was a Swiss horologist who invented the Perrelet automatic watches almost 250 years ago. He began learning how to make watches when he was around 20 years old. At around 1777, Perrelet invented a self-winding mechanism for automatic watches which was designed to wind as the owner walked. He later trained his grandson, Louis-Frederic Perrelet who went into business in Paris and invented marine watches with measuring instruments. The Perrelet watch brand was later acquired by Miguel Rodriguez (Festina Group), which has continued to successfully pioneer the development of the luxurious brand timepieces.
