In the pool or on the racing track, every thousandth of a second counts. That is why the four-time world champion swimmer, racing driver, watch-lover and embodiment of masculinity, Camille Lacourt, choses to wear the REBELLION Predator 2.0.
Camille Lacourt is a French swimmer specializing in the 50m and 100m backstroke. In 2011, he became the first French national to win a world championship in the 100m backstroke. Today, he is a 4-time world champion, father and racing driver in the Andros Trophy ice rally championship.
The new ambassadorship comes off the back of the fresh timing partnership between REBELLION Timepieces and the Andros Trophy. Lacourt will be representing the newest version of REBELLION Timepieces’ Predator series, the Predator 2.0.
The Predator 2.0 is a highly customizable, racing-inspired watch which is water-resistant up to 100m under water. With a choice between three extremely accurate, Swiss Made movements, four combinations of materials and countless other modifiable details, each bearer can have a completely unique watch which provides precise timing both on the track and in the pool.
Philipe Dubois, CEO of REBELLION Timepieces, “We are very proud to announce this new partnership with Camille. He is a great representative of the brand and shares many of REBELLION’s values and accolades. Just as our sister company REBELLION Racing has done, Camille has collected 4 world champion titles and is a ceaseless competitor within his disciplines. He is also passionate about watches and racing, and stays true to himself in the face of extreme pressure - all values which are extremely important to the REBELLION way of life.”
Camille Lacourt “I am excited about this new role with REBELLION and being the official ambassador of the Predator 2.0 series. REBELLION Timepieces is a huge supporter within racing, a great passion of mine, and I am very delighted to be bringing them into the world of swimming.
