REBELLION Timepieces creates two bespoke watches to celebrate marquee race
REBELLION Timepieces will celebrate its new partnership with SRO Motorsports Group at this year's Total 24 Hours of Spa by revealing a duo of bespoke GT World Challenge Powered by AWS watches.
The Swiss manufacturer has taken an active role in a variety of SRO championships this season, drawing upon its cutting-edge expertise as official timekeeper for GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, the Intelligent Money British GT Championship, TC America, Pirelli GT4 America and the SRO E-Sport GT Series. Its distinctive logo has also become a familiar presence on cars, within the paddock, and at the sport's most famous circuits.
As part of a three-year agreement with GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, REBELLION Timepieces will make its first appearance at the Total 24 Hours of Spa when the marquee race takes place on 22-25 October. To celebrate this milestone two limited-edition GT World Challenge Powered by AWS watches have been commissioned. These bespoke timepieces will be officially launched at the Total 24 Hours of Spa and awarded to title-winning drivers and to the global GT World Challenge Powered by AWS manufacturers' champion, while also being made available for general sale.
Based in Lonay on the banks of Lake Geneva, REBELLION Timepieces enjoys worldwide renown for its contribution to the art of fine Swiss watchmaking. Its heritage also includes considerable activity within the international motor racing arena, a commitment that has been driven by its passion for quality and performance.
This year's Total 24 Hours of Spa will be the first staged at the iconic Belgian circuit during autumn, having shifted from its traditional date at the end of July. The upcoming race will mark the 20th edition staged since GT rules were adopted in 2001, a move that has brought long-term sustainability to an event first run in 1924.
