Destructured hours: Rebellion Swiss Exclusive Timepieces

Based in Lonay, on the banks of Lake Geneva, Rebellion was established in 2008 to produce uncommon timepieces equipped with original cases and movements.

By Vincent Daveau

Since its beginnings, the company has dedicated itself to the design and production of truly different and strictly limited-edition timepieces based on quality standards that are well above average. Car racing, a world with which the brand is partnered, inspires the timepieces. These stand out especially because of their uncommon configuration. In other words, the brand’s creations –designed to attribute their owner a nonconformist status– feature non-traditional time reading. The T-1000 is a superlative watch in every sense of the word. Its production, its time display and its instrumentation are all laudable. The same happens – as expected – with external parts. The Gotham model is inspired by the fantastic world of Batman and Marvel comics, which makes it very attractive to enthusiasts of pure mechanics.

T-1000 Gotham 

Produced completely in titanium (natural or black PVD-treated), this watch is equipped with six mainsprings and to date holds the world record for its power reserve that reaches up to 1,000 hours. Only 25 models of the timepiece are available and they feature two titanium combinations. The colour of their movement can be black, gold, red, blue or purple.
