The concept of the remarkable power reserve complication was born in June 2008, after the famous 24 hours of Le Mans car race. Breathing in the air, saturated with smell of motor oil and hot engines, the creative minds of the company, boasting extensive experience in endurance car racing, came up with the idea of increasing the power reserve.
The case of the remarkable T-1000 watch is a result of the fruitful partnership between Eric Giroud and Rebellion. Rendered in titanium, it reveals chassis in aluminum. The watch case features the dimensions of 46,7 mm X 46,9 mm X19,5 mm. The case exposes a time-setting crown equipped with a patented push-button clutch system.
The Rebellion T-1000 watch relies on a hand-wound movement - REB T-1000, which incorporates a winding lever. It incorporates 14 ceramic jewels and 22 rubies. The movement operates at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour and offers the immense 1000-hour power reserve. This exceptional power reserve is assured by six (2 x 3) vertical mainspring barrels, wound in parallel by the chain and prop shaft. The barrels discharge power in series to ensure an optimal torque curve.
The functionality of the timepiece includes hours and minutes, indicated on rollers. The power reserve indicator is viewable through a window on the side of the case.
The water-resistance of the Rebellion T-1000 is down to 50 meters. The watch is accompanied by a black alligator leather strap. It terminates in a patented folding clasp endowed with a micrometric push-button regulation system. The latter enables the wearer to easily adjust the length of the strap.
