Rebellion Presents Predator Watch

Feb 22, 2010
The two-year old watch company Rebellion has already gained a strong foothold in the world of horology. Encouraged by car racing, it has surprised the demanding audience by its extraordinary watches: chronographs, regulators and tourbillions.

Created in cooperation with the designer Eric Giroud, the brands new brainchild, named Predator, has also inherited many features from racing automobiles: the brake discs and the pedals, the five-layer dial featuring a honeycomb base, as well as the bridges shaped as a push rod (the bridges are used to connect the chronograph counters to the dial).

Another eye-catching attribute of the new Rebellion watch is a double sectorial seconds hand, positioned at 9 oclock. The shorter hand points to the seconds from 0 to 30. The longer one, meanwhile, shows the seconds from 30 to 60.

The gorgeous Rebellion Predator watch relies on the self-winding RE-1 calibre movement, which runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. This mechanism boasts a 50-hour power reserve and animates the following functions: hours, minutes, sectorial seconds, as well as chronograph and date.

The timepiece definitely stands out due to its case available in different materials: red gold, red gold/ceramic, steel and steel/ceramic. Numbered in the middle, the watch case is equipped with a bezel, secured by eight Rebellion screws. It is also outfitted with a red gold or steel crown, featuring a rubber ring. The watch reveals a screw-down sapphire case-back. Its water-resistance is assured to 100 meters.

The DLC black honeycomb dial exposes red gold or steel hour-markers, tipped with a coat of Superluminova to ensure perfect visibility in the dark. The watch face is completed with hour, minute and sectorial seconds sub-dials, positioned at 6, 3 and 9 oclock correspondingly. The date display is located at 4.30.

The novel Rebellion Predator watch is affixed to a black rubber strap, finished with a red gold, ceramic or steel patented folding clasp.

The timepiece is to be presented at Baselworld 2010.
