Rebellion Partnership with IDEC Sport
Rebellion Timepieces announces a partnership with IDEC Sport, which competes in the worlds of sailing and car racing.
Under the IDEC Sport banner are IDEC Sport Sailing and IDEC Sport Racing. IDEC Sport Sailing, led by multiple record-holding sailor Francis Joyon, has been on a quest to break ocean records for the last 15 years. Over that time, they have experienced many human adventures and have claimed the Outright Solo World Record, Solo North Atlantic Record and Solo Channel Crossing Record, among others.
IDEC Sport Racing is a sports car team, established in 2015, with a goal of tackling the world of endurance racing as a family.
Partnership talks began following IDEC Sport Sailing’s successful 2017 attempt to break the Jules Verne Trophy Record with a time of 40 days, 23 hours, 30 minutes and 30 seconds.
Both IDEC Sport entities have large endurance goals planned for this summer. On 17/18 June, IDEC Sport Racing stepped up from European Le Mans Series to participate in the ultimate test in endurance racing, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. IDEC Sport Sailing, set off on 25 June from Saint Nazaire where they are competing in the transatlantic race, The Bridge 2017. This highly original race sees four giant multihulls follow the direct route taken by the ocean liner Queen Mary 2. It is a highly symbolic 3.152-mile (5.073 km) race which celebrates a century of exchanges and friendship between the United States and France.
As part of this partnership, Rebellion Timepieces will be the official timing partner in both disciplines with an aim to support IDEC Sport’s drive to push boundaries and break records.
In honor of the partnership, REBELLION Timepieces has released two watches: The Predator 2.0 Regulator Power Reserve IDEC Sport Edition and the Wraith Drive IDEC Sport Edition. Both watches are decorated with the team’s color, red, and sport the IDEC Sport Sailing logo on the case back. They will be available for sale upon the arrival of the Queen Mary 2 in New York City on 1 July 2017.
