Inspired by performance, functionality and boldness for almost ten years, the Rebellion brand continues to rack up the laps with the confidence of a driver sure of his car and his team. Just as the eponymous racing stable, belonging to the same shareholder, stacks up wins from Le Mans to Daytona, the watch brand is developing its collections and proving itself ever more convincing and relevant. The motorsports DNA of the new Predator 2.0 GMT regulator presented at Baselworld is immediately apparent, notably in the hours displayed with the tip of a brake caliper. The minutes hand closely resembles instrument panel needles, while the case layers and the beveled shape of the lugs evoke the streamlined bodywork of a supercharged prototype. The 24-hour aperture at 6 o’clock surrounds a globe reminding us that the world is meant to be crisscrossed in all directions.
