About 15% of Perrelet’s watches are models for women, and the Diamond Flower line, first presented in 2008, now comprises this model, Diamond Flower Amytis, named after the wife of Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar (famous for the hanging gardens). The watch is commendable for its in-house movement, at a relatively low price, starting from €5,450 for the basic version and moving up to diamond-set models. The watch is characteristic for its dial-side rotor, part of the Double Rotor P-181-H movement that has two rotors, one on the dial side and one on the movement side. The dial-side rotor is in the form of flower petals and it gives the watch a constantly changing, dynamic appearance. The movement, with 100 components, has a power reserve of 42 hours, and runs at 28,800 vph (4 Hertz).
