TWENTY-ONE GMT & WRAITH DRIVE CHRONOGRAPH GTWC
Rebellion, official timekeeper for the first time for the Total 24 Hours of Spa, celebrates this event with watches flying high the colors of the GT World Challenge Powered by AWS.
The red- and black-dressed adornments of Rebellion’s Twenty-One GMT GTWC exalt the passion for motor racing. This model, crafted like a dual-shafted steering wheel, centre stages a small disc which brings to mind a car horn. On top, we can read the inscription “GT World Challenge”. To boost this graphical likeness even more, the scenography on the slightly-openworked dial focuses on perfectly-rounded components and an omnipresent balance-wheel. The hours are not displayed by a hand but by a rotating disc set at 12 o’clock. As for the minutes, they are ticked over by a hand coated with luminescent material which ensures optimal readability. This watch is also perfectly-practical as it flaunts a second time zone. A small 24-hour disc nestling at 8 o’clock displays the original time. To complete this time data, a small-seconds counter lets the wearer check the movement is running correctly.
The Wraith Drive Chronograph takes on the same colors. On its dial, the layout of the various time indications is also inspired by the automotive world, in particular the small-seconds counter at 9 o’clock which looks like a wheel rim. In the centre, two luminescent openworked hands hover over the hours and minutes. The date skips past in an aperture set at 3 o’clock. Short-cycle time is measured by an ever-so easy-to-read bright red-varnished centrally-placed direct-drive which marks the seconds. The chronograph minutes and hours are totalized in two counters displayed respectively at 6 o’clock and 12 o’clock.
As always, these two Rebellion series combine exemplary finishes with high-performing Swiss Made engineering.
