RE-1 is a chronograph for the 21st Century: forceful, emphatic, modern. Its visage is reminiscent of an engine, with touches that recall turbines, alloy wheels, competition dials and gauges. A bold sweep hand marks the crucial timing for events that warrant the operation of the chronograph functions. Even the pushers look like small cam covers, the crown reminiscent of a nut securing a wheel to a hub.
Rebellion’s RE-1 resolutely records time in an analogue manner during the digital era. Rebellion, indeed.
