Rebellion Timepieces Two limited edition watches to celebrate the mythical race
Rebellion Timepieces celebrates first Total 24 Hours of SPA as official timekeeper with bespoke GT World Challenge Powered by AWS watches.
Rebellion Timepieces will celebrate its new partnership with SRO Motorsports Group at this year's Total 24 Hours of Spa by revealing a duo of bespoke GT World Challenge Powered by AWS watches.
The Swiss manufacturer has taken an active role in a variety of SRO championships this season, drawing upon its cutting-edge expertise as official timekeeper for GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, the Intelligent Money British GT Championship, TC America, Pirelli GT4 America and the SRO E-Sport GT Series. Its distinctive logo has also become a familiar presence on cars, within the paddock, and at the sport's most famous circuits.
As part of a three-year agreement with GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, Rebellion Timepieces will make its first appearance at the Total 24 Hours of Spa when the marquee race takes place on 22-25 October. To celebrate this milestone three limited-edition GT World Challenge Powered by AWS watches have been commissioned. These bespoke timepieces will be officially launched at the Total 24 Hours of Spa and awarded to title-winning drivers and to the global GT World Challenge Powered by AWS manufacturers' champion, while also being made available for general sale.
Based in Lonay, on the shores of Lake Geneva, Rebellion Timepieces is world-renowned for its contribution to the art of fine Swiss watchmaking. Involved for many years in the field of international motor racing, the brand offers watches with a strong personality that combine powerful design, high-tech materials and advanced mechanics. All are customisable. They reflect the brand's original passion for quality and performance.
This year's Total 24 Hours of Spa will be the first staged at the iconic Belgian circuit during autumn, having shifted from its traditional date at the end of July. The upcoming race will mark the 20th edition staged since GT rules were adopted in 2001, a move that has brought long-term sustainability to an event first run in 1924.
"We are very proud that Rebellion Timepieces will be the official timekeeper for GT World Challenge Powered by AWS," says Alexandre Pesci, Rebellion Timepieces President & Owner. "We have followed the work of SRO Motorsports Group for many years and been very impressed by the success they have achieved across the globe. GT racing is the perfect combination of passion and sport and we look forward sharing this experience over the next three years."
"Rebellion Timepieces is a passionate, no-compromise brand and I am delighted that they have joined GT World Challenge Powered by AWS this season," says Stephane Ratel, SRO Motorsports Group Founder & CEO. "It is exciting to add a partner with so much enthusiasm for our sport and with a deep understanding of sportscar racing. Rebellion’s expert timekeeping skills will be a vital tool for the years ahead and I hope that this marks the start of a long and fruitful relationship."
