Rebellion Timepieces It's All In The Name

Discovering the new watches of Rebellion Timepieces.

In an industry that sometimes is seen as too traditionalist, it is always refreshing to know that there are brands like Rebellion, whose name is much more than just that: it is a declaration of intent and that is what watchmaking is all about. Let's not forget that somehow watchmaking in its infancy was something rebellious and revolutionary.

Rebellion not only produces watches of bold design and in very limited numbers; but also has its own team of cars for endurance competitions, such as the gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it already obtained a place on the podium and won the championship for private competitors; Apparently Rebellion's passion for precision mechanics goes far beyond an excellent advertising slogan. For 2021 Rebellion has some surprises in store, always in line with its philosophy.

Unique transparency

Starting with the Re-Volt Sapphire, a new version of the iconic Re-Volt Skeleton with a case made entirely of sapphire crystal from which three unique pieces in red, white and blue colors have been created. Transparency is a fundamental part of the design of the Re-Volt Sapphire, in which not much is left to the imagination, since the in-house caliber, made up of 165 individual components, is visible from almost any angle, in a not exactly conventional way.

The skeletonized bridges of the movement are finished according to the color of the case, the indexes and hands have Super-LumiNova and the deep look it provides makes these watches a true visual adventure in which even the crown is made of the same sapphire crystal.

The caliber that animates the pieces is manually wound and offers a power reserve of up to 48 hours. Transparent and lightweight, all that substract ends adding up in a high-performance machine, both in mass and in readability. The color-coordinated rubber strap of the case allows it to be attached to the wrist by means of a double folding clasp.

Re-Volt Chrono

New addition to the collection, the Re-Volt Chrono was a natural fit for this collection, as accurate timing is what motorsport is all about, Rebellion's main inspiration, being a presence at events such as Le Mans and the Rally Dakar. The movement bridges arrangement is high-tech looking, and underneath is an openworked honeycomb dial that partially reveals the robust chronograph caliber behind. The pushers for the operation of the chronograph take their inspiration from the pedals of a racing car and their shape makes them very effective and positive-feeling when activated.

At three o'clock there is a 60-minute counter and next to it, the calendar window, while a small second hand is at 9. The case is made entirely of titanium and will be available in six versions: two in satin-finished titanium and four in black DLC titanium; three of them with vibrant color accents, one with gold accents and one with a closer to all-black look. The strap is made of rubber with a quadruple folding clasp and millimetric adjustment.

Predator S Rainbow

High-tech finishes that combine fine jewelry with a black DLC titanium case make it impossible to accuse Rebellion of making a conventional women's watch; It was logical, with such a mixture of DNA you could not expect anything less than spectacular. Arranged in eight clusters of four multi-colored sapphires that have been chosen for the gradient they form, the Predator S Rainbow's bolt-on bezel makes a powerful statement of fun but with a lot of racing attitude and a 42mm diameter case. The honeycomb-like dial allows the mechanism to be seen partially and adds some depth to the whole, while at 3 o'clock we find a triple window for the date. The strap is made of rubber with a folding clasp, and optionally the quadruple clasp with millimetric adjustment is available.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Tour Auto Optic 2000, a classic car rally that takes place in France, starting in Paris and ending in Nice, Rebellion introduced the Twenty-One 3-Hands Tour Auto, a limited edition watch. to 20 copies in stainless steel.

Rebellion is the firm in charge of keeping the important time count of this rally, so that the winner can be defined from among the approximately 200 participants. The piece incorporates the colors of the flag of France on the face and a large bridge covers the center of it, inspired by the two-spoke steering wheel of a classic car; the center of which covers the base of the red hands with a metallic dome with the Rebellion logo on it. The Tour Auto logo is printed inside of sapphire crystal. The rubber strap can be blue or white.

Rebellion watches have a unique personality, and even when they follow the precepts of traditional watchmaking, their designs and way of looking at watchmaking are something very fresh. It is good to know that there are still those who have not lost that rebellious spirit.
