Perrelet is an incredible Swiss luxury watch company. Its founder, Abraham-Louis Perrelet (1729-1826), was considered a master horologist in his time. In fact, he was so dedicated to his trade that he has been used as a reference to horology students. Perrelet invented the first automatic self-winding mechanism. Even today no one has been able to find a more perfect mechanism.
In 1780 Perrelet created the first Pedometer. In doing so he was the first individual to make a watch with mechanisms that seem common today such as the cylinder, duplex, escapements, date watch and equation watch.
