Look once. Look again. Now look once again, closely. The T-1000 Time Machine by Rebellion creates a new realm of innovation and design.
It not just surprises you, it actually astounds. With a power reserve of more than 1,000 hours, the T-1000 Time Machine has six mainspring barrels. The unique over-sized winding lever lies in a stylish case that boasts an inimitable design. The watch lasts longer than 40 days and 40 nights without rewinding. And it took Rebellion a mere 24 hours to come up with the concept.
The experience of Rebellion’s racing team at Le Mans was the germ of the idea behind the watch. The heat of the after-race fervour, replete with the smell of motor oil and engines, gave birth to the majestic brilliance of an enduring machine called T-1000.
Eric Giroud designed the body of the T-1000 in collaboration with Rebellion. In a patented system of energy distribution, the six barrels are wound in parallel by two finely engineered chains, discharging in series (2×3) to optimise the torque and power to the regulator. Thanks to the three-dimensional, open-dial architecture, the vertical roller-borne hour and minute indications stand out in all their glory, while the balance, escapement, ratchet and gear train are also in full view.
While the case hints at the chassis of a car, the window in the side reveals the mainspring barrels and the ‘fuel gauge’ for the power reserve. The patented time-setting clutch activated by a push button in the crown makes setting time as pleasurable as shifting gears.
The timepiece provides a unique kinesthetic pleasure for the owner. T-1000 by Rebellion is meant for those who love the sheer thrill of speed.
