Rebellion RE-2 Flyback Chronograph

Swiss luxury watch maker, Rebellion Timepieces presents an advanced edition of their new watch model “The RE-2 Flyback 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.
Natural rubber grips on the crown and slots in the pushers add both substance and style to the chronograph’s already impressive functionality. 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.
