Even though there are some counterclaims exist from other inventors of his time, Perrelet is considered by many as the inventor of the automatic watch. Now, the firm has come out with the model, Perrelet Turbine XL Paranoia, and the model is not going to be lapped up by many. This model has a diameter of 50mm. When they came up with the Turbine for the very first time, it was an interesting concept. Now, after many variations, it feels gimmicky and stale. Now, the brand is trying too much in their attempts to come up with something new and this model looks more like a forced creation than something evolved as a result of natural progression. Abraham Louis Perrelet must be feeling restless in his grave!
