Lonay, Switzerland (7 March 2017) – Rebellion Timepieces, a Swiss manufacturer of high-precision watches, announces a strategic partnership with Zenvo Automotive at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show 2017. As part of the partnership, Rebellion Timepieces will develop a new watch model and timing instrumentation for Zenvo Automotive’s supercars. The partnership extends into technical collaboration with Rebellion Racing which will include shared engineering capabilities, data and testing.
Also revealed at the show was a limited edition Predator 2.0 GMT Zenvo timepiece. This racing-inspired, dual time-zone watch features a dial adorned with a brake and a caliper hour hand. It serves as the pair’s first act of partnership.
Zenvo Automotive is a Danish manufacturer of high performance supercars and an engineering development company. Like Rebellion Timepieces, it is driven by a desire to produce highly customizable, limited edition products made with the best automotive technologies, innovation and human attention to detail.
Nigel Gordon-Stewart, Global Commercial Director of Zenvo Automotive: “We are really thrilled about this partnership with Rebellion. I’ve admired their brand, their premium watches and their ability to just get out there and take on the big boys on the track. Their watch mechanics are really impressive and we are looking forward to utilizing their savoir-faire to provide our cars with very high-precision clocks and timing equipment.”
Philippe Dubois, CEO of Rebellion Timepieces: “I have gotten to know Nigel and Zenvo as a company very well over the previous months. Both our organizations have a lot in common. I am very impressed by their engineering and design intelligence and think that they will be a huge asset to the watch side as well as to our sister company Rebellion Racing.”
Zenvo Automotive’s Anniversary TS1 supercar, the Predator 2.0 GMT Zenvo watch and a Rebellion Racing show car are on display at the Geneva International Motor Show until 19 March in the Palexpo convention center in Geneva.
