REBELLION RE-2 Fly Back Chronograph

REBELLION RE-2 Fly Back Chronograph

First released in 2008, the RE-2 has undergone a revamp and a rebirth in 2009. Award-winning watch designer Eric Giroud has re-examined and re-worked every detail of the case to emphasize its strength and power. The RE-2 now features Rebellion’s distinctive signature helice screw heads, larger diameter crown – more masculine and easier to use – plus new wedge-shaped chronograph pushers that feel as good as they look.

Even a quick glance at the RE-2 is enough to appreciate that this is not a watch to mess with. Natural rubber grips on the crown and slots in the pushers add both substance and style to the chronograph’s already impressive functionality. The RE-2 demands respect – and it gets it!

The silky smooth operation of the pushers on a column-wheel chronograph has seduced many an aficionado of fine complications and this timepiece has been developed and designed to win both the hearts and minds of discerning collectors.

Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye.
