We love the Dakar here at NWC magazine, even though it has decamped to Saudi Arabia. It remains the toughest off-road race out there and Rebellion watches have done a great job in capturing the right look for a tie-in watch.
Complete with Dakar logo, desert sand strap, plus the gas/brake markings on the chrono button, this Re-Volt model is available in just 20 pieces, so yeah, pretty limited edition. Price is 26,500 CHF, or about £21,500.
Here’s the word from Rebellion;
The Re-Volt Chrono Dakar is a concentrate of the racing spirit. Unique, demanding and uncompromising, this limited edition features a striking open architecture built around a titanium case with aerodynamic lines. Its ergonomics are designed like the cockpit of a GT in order to facilitate its use.
The hands move on a honeycomb dial like the grille of a supercar. The timing is carried out using the two push-buttons designed as accelerator and brake pedals.
The totalizer housed at 3 o’clock takes the features of a stylish tachometer. These and the indexes have golden tones. And to reinforce its “desert fox” personality, the Re-Volt Chrono Dakar is worn on a fabric strap in the colour of the landscapes of the rally tracks. Once again, every detail embodies Rebellion’s passion for the Dakar!
