REBELLION WEAP-ONE ASYMMETRICAL FLYING TOURBILLON IN DIAMONDS

Free from traditional restrictions of form and use, REBELLION’s WEAP-ONE literally breaks the mold. Worn on the body or displayed on a dashboard, this piece of mechanical art is uninhibited by existing rules.

Suspended between the hour and minute rollers in sapphire crystal, an asymmetrical, 60-second flying tourbillon in diamonds rotates on multiple axes. This novel and innovative feature enables the tourbillon to defy earth’s gravitational pull from all sides.

Completed with two wheel nuts, this magnificent piece is truly revolutionary and unique. Its accompanying transparency gives uninhibited visual access to the watch’s internal mechanics. Inspired by race car suspensions, this exclusive manufacture movement, developed in collaboration with Concepto, is housed in a detachable tube so it can easily become a miniature table clock. To facilitate handling, this technical prowess has an armature comprised of two push-pieces located on the titanium chassis.

The hour is displayed on the left and the minutes on the right, while the tourbillon is skillfully suspended between two platinum plates which rotate in opposite directions and at different speeds. Several speed differentials cause the flying tourbillon to rotate on multiple axes, rendering this manual engine extremely resistant to Earth’s gravitational pull.

A series of accessories will soon be available to multiply the uses of this timepiece, allowing it to become either a desktop clock, a car clock, or a pocket watch.
