At Baselworld 2017, the Predator collection welcomes a 30-piece Tourbillon Regulator series, featuring counters evoking the power of a speed machine hurtling around a track at around 300km/h. The famous comic book hero Michel Vaillant, a racing driver and adventurer with a warm heart, will feature in a new album dedicated to REBELLION Racing and set between Geneva and the 24 Hours of Le Mans track. A first for a watch brand and a motor-racing team ! The symbiotic relationship between these two worlds is embodied in the Predator 2.0 Tourbillon Regulator, whose design and exterior are resolutely inspired by the bodywork, engine, wheels and instrument panel of racing cars. The bolt-shaped screws on the side of the case perfectly reflect this spirit along with the rugged strength it conveys. Like supercars, the modular case in carbon, rose gold and titanium affords many possibilities for personalization. The unusually designed central seconds sweeps over the carbon dial in step with the rotation speed of the tourbillon carriage, while the symmetrical counters indicate the hours and minutes. The date appears at 4 o’clock in an open red aperture reminiscent of an engine part. Birds of a feather ?
