RELIVE THE GOLDEN AGE OF FORMULA 1
This limited, numbered edition of 50 timepieces is presented on the occasion of a highly emotional event for racing enthusiasts of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.
From December 1st to the 3rd, the Historic Dubai Grand Prix Revival will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the first Formula 1 Grand Prix held in the UAE city. Rebellion, a partner of this competition, will make its presence felt at this race by having four of its ambassadors compete on the track in their vintage racing cars. The brand is also unveiling an exclusive sporty chic limited edition. The Twenty-One GMT Gulf Historic watch retains the elegant cushion-shaped steel casing and the layout inspired by the design of the steering wheel of the iconic classic cars of the original model. This new variation takes on a vintage look, combining the timeless black of the watch casing with warm, copper-colored accents. In this dynamic arrangement, the hours are displayed at 12 o’clock via a rotating disc similar to the counter of the sculptural American Pony Car. The minutes are marked by an imposing red hand identical to that of a rev counter. At 8 o’clock, the second time zone appears thanks to a rotating disc, while at 4 o’clock, a small swift second hand is displayed.
All time data is coordinated by a precise Swiss Made caliber. This self-winding movement produces at a minimum 42 hours of power reserve.
To further emphasize its vintage personality, the timepiece comes with a comfortable nubuck leather strap. This wristband comes in orange, brown, and green. All are stamped with the Gulf Historic logo.
