Rebellion Predator 2.0 GMT

Just like its siblings within the PREDATOR 2.0 series (Power Reserve and Tourbillon models), the Predator 2.0 GMT is the ultimate technical and aesthetic fusion between racing cars and fine watches. The unique display is directly inspired by the brakes of racecars, which, like engines, are an integral part of the vehicles' performance, endurance, resistance and reliability. In fact, wearing the Predator 2.0 Regulator GMT is like pushing the brake pedal of a racing car.
The dashboard features an astonishing hour hand composed of a brake disc and red caliper. You can plan to drive your watch at any of the world's great tracks, from Daytona to Le Mans, thanks to the large, round time zone indicator. The racing car aesthetics are rounded off by the uniquely shaped second hand. The self-winding movement provides a generous 42 hours of power reserve. Limited to 25 pieces.

About Predator 2.0 Series
Launched at SIHH 2017, the innovative the Predator 2.0 series is an update to the original Predator and carries on the tradition of fusing racing technology and aesthetics into quality timepieces. The Predator 2.0 series is comprised of three distinct versions: The Predator 2.0 Regulator Power Reserve, the Predator 2.0 Regulator Tourbillion and the Predator 2.0 GMT.  Each Predator 2.0 contains its own in-house movement and offer seven more customization options.

The Regulator Power Reserve has a legacy regulator design which seamlessly combines watchmaking history with car racing.  In the middle of the timepiece is the in-house movement based on a self-winding motor. Looking into the watch’s large, sapphire glass is like peering into a racecar.  The dashboard exhibits two sub-dials which display the hours and minutes while the newly developed REB-AMS bent hand rotates around the full display to mark the seconds.  It is completed by a special fuel gauge located at 6 o’clock, revealing how much of the 46-hour power reserve remains.

The Predator 2.0 Regulator Tourbillon is a 30-piece, limited edition watch.  It is named after its in-house movement, the P351 self-winding Regulator Tourbillon.  Located at 6 o’clock and encased in a 60-second rotating cage, the watch’s tourbillon offsets any disruption caused by the Earth’s gravity, providing the timepiece with superb accuracy.  The date is displayed through a window at 4o’clock, while special sub-dials read the hour and minutes and the newly developed REB-AMS hand marks the seconds.  The Predator 2.0 Regulator Tourbillon boasts a significant 65 hours of power reserve, the largest power reserve of this series.

The Predator 2.0 GMT is a 25-piece, limited edition watch named for its distinctive 24-hour GMT time-zone indicator. Its large, sapphire case reveals the watch’s inner-workings.  The display is directly inspired by racecar brakes and its dashboard exhibits a unique hour hand comprised of a rotating disc and red caliper.  It is finished-off by the racing-inspired REB-AMS minute hand and has a power reserve of 42 hours.
