Swiss luxury watch brand Rebellion is a major partner of the Historic Dubai Grand Prix Revival, which will be held on 2 and 3 December 2021. This event marks forty years after the first Grand Prix race in Dubai and the 50th anniversary of the creation of the United Arab Emirates. Rebellion will be launching an exclusive sporty chic limited edition to mark this event.
This “historic” race will feature all the hallmarks of the 1981 event with F1 and Group C Grand Prix cars from the 70s and 80s, on the Dubai Autodrome circuit. In addition to the supercharged atmosphere of the competition, this event will give the opportunity for vintage and classic car enthusiasts to relive an era.
Rebellion will meet there with the GP Extreme group, with which it is a partner of its GPX Racing entity during the GT World Challenge Europe endurance championship. The Swiss watch brand will present the winners of the Formula 1 (1970-1985 cars) and Group C (1982-1992 cars) races with their trophies.
The Twenty-One Gulf Historic watch features the elegant cushion-shaped case and the set-up inspired by the design of the steering wheels of the iconic classic cars of the original model.
This variation adopts vintage look combining the black of the case with timeless lines with elements in warm and copper tones. In this refined setting, the time is displayed at 12 o’clock using a rotating disc like the counter on the sculptural American Pony Cars. The minutes are pointed by an imposing red hand like that of a supercharged tachometer.
This data is orchestrated by a precise Swiss Made automatic calibre. And to reinforce its vintage style, the timepiece comes with a comfortable nubuck leather strap stamped with the event logo.
