He possessed the extraordinary skills in watch making, thus he devoted his life to this sphere. He contributed a lot in the creation of rewinding watches resulted in developing of automated winding system. And till now this non-stop mechanism is still used that proved to work forever.

Being the grandson of the eminent Abraham-Louis Perrelet, Louis-Frédéric was lucky to live up first years of development under the benevolent eyes of his grand-father in Le Locle. When an adult, he changed his place of living for Paris which was far attractive to him. In 1815 he intended to create the astronomic watches that was shown to a wide public only at the Universal Exhibition. Soon after he was allowed to make watches for the royal families in France, no less than three kings, due to his gift to create unique watches. In 1827 he proposes his chronograph split-second mechanism for the patent and receives it the only following year. All for his merits he was conferred Knight of the Legion of Honors in 1834, with 4 golden medals.

The designers and masters of the company developed the Perrelet Double Motor, the principal model in the watch making sphere in 1995. The model has a single rotor on the dial side connected and well-synchronized with the second rotor from the below of the mechanism.

The Retrograde Second with Double Parallel Rotor is made and manufactured in 2005 in the limited edition along with Paul Gerber, a legendary professional watchmaker from Zürich.

In 2006 Perrelet launches a new line of watches for ladies named Grand Central Moonphase. The watches were unique for the time with original development, P-1030 caliber, being the top of the technology for that time.

As well as other watch making companies, PERRELET yielded the state and demands of the market and launched the sporty titanium carbon version of Regulateur Retrograde. The model was good, and the sports motif and development made it even genius. The only thing to mention is that the regulator with the retrograde function is a unique and rarity solution, and thus, the various designer solutions of the company will meet the tastes of various customers. 

The followers of Abraham-Louis Perrelet varied the classic assortment of watches creating new models without the second hand but with the Retrograde hour Display reading time and a calendar. Р-221 caliber developed at the Perrelet factory in Valtee de Joux is equipped with the automatic winding module. It has never been manufactured and therefore, the Company patented the exclusive model at once. The unusual and extraordinary watches are manufactured in steel cases and pink gold.

The collection for women was presented a bit later in the year 2008 called DIAMOND FLOWER. Perrelet tenderly cared of ladies perceiving them as the delicate and fine creatures. The women lines looked as jewelry rather than watches. The exclusiveness and accurate models by Perrelet are surely elegant and solid to be proud to possess them.
