Rebellion Two sensational new complications

After launching their horological Rebellion in 2008, the provocative young Swiss brand presents two new complications.

Press release



After launching their horological Rebellion in 2008, the provocative young Swiss brand has kept the creative energy flowing: first with a subtle, but sublime, re-work of their signature modular case by award-winning watch designer Eric Giroud; and secondly in presenting two brand new complications by acclaimed master watchmaker Laurent Besse.

Working with the world's best watchmakers and designers allows Rebellion to offer distinctive and interesting timepieces at the technological and aesthetical sharp edge of contemporary fine watchmaking.

Rebellion doesn't follow trends, it creates them! Award-winning horological designer extraordinaire Eric Giroud has been responsible for some of the wildest and most extreme timepieces on the planet. Giroud has taken Rebellion's distinctive modular case and refined it to bring out even more of its masculine character and harmonised iconic visual elements including Rebellion's helice logo.

I took the distinctive Rebellion case, which due to its form and modular design was already an excellent base, and basically fine-tuned it. There are new crownguards/chronograph pushers, Rebellion logo helice heads and I gave the case a more masculine, aggressive look. Superficially the new case looks similar to the old, but every detail has been re-examined and re-worked. Eric Giroud

Master watchmaker and movement designer Laurent Besse has developed two new movements specifically and exclusively for Rebellion. The stunning no-dial architectures reveal the movements and mechanisms in all their micro-mechanical glory. The REB-5 Tourbillon features a mind-blowing seven days reserve of power, while the REB-7 Regulator offers a large date as well as a regulator dial totally unlike any other.Rebellion_325435_1My aim was to provide the movement with very powerful visual that complemented Eric's case. To that end we decided to integrate the dials with the movements. The indexes are attached directly to the top plate of the open-worked movement so that as much of each mechanism as possible is on display. Laurent Besse.

All models are very different; all are very unmistakably non-conformist Rebellion.

Just what makes a Rebellion Timepiece so special?

The Rebellion family of contemporary timepieces share common traits in terms of their highly sophisticated technical design and construction, innovative movements, modular cases, three- dimensional indications and visuals, and their impeccable quality.

But what most sets Rebellion's timepieces apart is their radical non-conformist nature.

Full of design cues originating in the world of motor sport, Rebellion Timepieces are high-performance racing cars for the wrist. Rebellion's watches are crafted in small series or are unique pieces. The modular construction of the cases and dials ensures that every model is extremely exclusive, as well as offering a vast choice of options regarding personalisation.

Rebellion's precision-engineered cases and high-tech movements are crafted in small numbers to offer exclusive cutting-edge style to a select few.

The brand

A passion for the ultimate in performance is what drives both Rebellion Timepieces and Rebellion Racing, two entities whose worlds are closely intertwined.
