REBELLION Timepieces will be visible in the 2015 World RX paddock with new activation ideas such as a branded paddock countdown clock and exposure in the official World RX TV show which is broadcasted in over 150 countries worldwide.

As the official timing partner of the FIA World Rallycross and in order to pay tribute to their performance, the winner of each World RX race will be awarded with an X1 REBELLION watch and a limited edition official World RX watch range will be launched later this year.

Launched in 2008, REBELLION Timepieces is a young, audacious and independent Swiss manufacturer of high-end watches, based in Lonay, on the shores of Lake Leman. REBELLION’s timepieces are crafted in limited quantities, with precision-engineered cases and exclusive movements.

All of REBELLION Timepieces research, development and production take place in Switzerland, where the very highest standards are both expected and obtained. REBELLION Timepieces blends highly sophisticated technical know-how with an uncompromising approach to quality.

REBELLION Timepieces is already a name synonymous with motorsport following its partnership with successful motorsport team REBELLION Racing, the dominant privateer LMP1 team in the FIA World Endurance Championship and at legendary Le Mans 24 Hours.

After winning the Le Mans Series Championship in 2011, REBELLION Racing recorded the overall victory at the prestigious Petit Le Mans race in the USA in 2012 and 2013 and won FIA Endurance LMP1 Trophy for privateer team in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

During the 2015 racing season, REBELLION Racing’s LMP1 cars will carry the World RX logo at Le Mans 24 Hours event as part of a cross-promotional activity between World RX and its new timing partner.
