Purnell - Escape Primo WPM

Purnell Escape Primo WPM

Purnell presents in collaboration with its iconic Master watchmaker Eric Coudray the Escape Primo, a new caliber CP11 with a single Spherion and a power reserve indicator

Escape Primo becomes the world’s fastest triple axis tourbillon with a rotation of its Spherion in 8 seconds, 16 seconds & 30 seconds. The Escape Primo is presented in a WPM case, standing for “White Purnell Microfiber”, an all-new exclusive ultra-light and extremely heat and shock-resistant material.

“Eric Coudray’s inventiveness and talent is a true blessing for watchmaking," states Maurizio Mazzocchi Purnell CEO. "It is not only benefiting Purnell but the entire field of horology. We are delighted to present once again a spectacular interpretation of the Spherion, bringing to the Escape Primo collection a matching hypnotic spectacle of watchmaking as the Double Spherion.”

100% Swiss made materiall Escape Primo WPM case is composed of 4 blocks of WPM. Produced by vacuum injection molding, WPM has a particularly homogenic and smooth off-white appearance due to a fine polishing technique using very small-scale diamond tools. Its surface is hardened with heat and finished with an anti-UV treatment, making it very resistant to all temperature conditions.

The objective of WPM is to go beyond what conventional white ceramic offers, providing a lighter material (density 1,25g/cm3) and stronger shock-resistant properties.
