Newcomer rebellion storms into the high-end of the swiss watchmaking world

Rebellion Timepieces made its debut at Baselworld 2008 with a spectacular set of five calibers, including a world premiere: a GMT Jumping Hour. Crafted in small quantities, Rebellion's bespoke, precision-engineered cases and movements offer cutting-edge style to a select few. 

The five Rebellion calibres to be unveiled are a manual wind with power reserve; a cam-lever chronograph; a column wheel chronograph; world premiere GMT Jumping Hour; and a stunning all-new tourbillon. 

All of Rebellion’s research, development and production takes place in Switzerland, where the very highest standards are both demanded and obtained. Rebellion has total mastery of all facets of the development and manufacture of their timepieces. 

Rebellion blends highly sophisticated technical know-how and cutting-edge production facilities – including high-tech precision lasers and complex five-axis CNC machinery - with bold contemporary design and an uncompromising approach to quality. 

Rebellion leads; their timepieces do not follow style or trends, and are for those who demand a very exclusive, high quality, high-tech wristwatch. 

The Rebellion family of contemporary timepieces share common traits in terms of their highly sophisticated technical design and construction, bespoke movements, impeccable quality and elaborate case and dials. 

All of Rebellion's movements are bespoke and have been designed, developed, produced and assembled in Switzerland under the most quality-conscious conditions using the very latest technology and techniques. 

The movements are exhaustively tested in Rebellion’s own state-of-the-art testing laboratory to ensure both their accuracy and reliability. The dials of Rebellion watches are multi-layered, providing a three-dimensional visual feast as well as offering unparalleled flexibility in terms of choice of materials. The latter offers a vast range of possibilities for personalisation. 

The solid indices are applied - not stamped - in a material which matches and complements both case and hands. Double anti-reflective coatings on the massive sapphire crystal offer an unimpeded view of the dial. The compound curves and bevelled edges of the crystal, incredibly difficult to achieve, further add to the overall 
feeling that Rebellion timepieces are a cut above the ordinary. 

The milling of each modular Rebellion case takes more than a day using the latest generation of laser cutters and five-axis CNC milling machines. Complex and demanding work, but the result speaks for itself in terms of quality and customisation options. 

Rebellion wristwatches benefit from natural rubber grips on crown and pushers; automatic rotors are milled from solid 18kt gold; all models including the tourbillon are water-resistant to 100 metres; and all come with natural rubber straps. 

Rebellion timepieces are crafted in small quantities with precision-engineered cases and bespoke movements offering exclusivity with cutting-edge style.
