REBELLION – TWENTY-ONE
Hit the legendary Route 66 with this timepiece and keep an eye on home time as you speed through three time zones sitting in a Pony Car.
Rebellion watches are inspired by the world of classic cars. The brand has stayed on course with the Twenty-One whose design brings to mind both a vintage two-spoke steering wheel and speed dials like the ones on dashboards in 60s American cars. The Rebellion logo on a small disc in the middle is like a car horn on the steering wheel. To enhance the graphic similarities, the openwork dial’s layout uses curvaceous features. The visible balance wheel underlines the unique identity. Instead of a hand, the hours are displayed on a rotating disc at 12. The minutes are tracked by a red hand which contrasts with the monochrome dial for the ultimate visibility.
The watch isn’t just style over substance as it has a second time zone. A small disc at 8 displays home time and a small seconds counter enables you to check the movement is working properly.
All the features appear in a stylish and generous 46.95mm cushion-shaped steel case. The Twenty-One also houses the first in-house mechanical movement by the brand: a self-winding calibre with a 42-hour power reserve.
