Rebellion Timepieces has announced that it has struck up a partnership with Swiss racing team COOL Racing.
The team is involved in European Le Mans Series, Michelin Le Mans Cup, FFSA GT4 and Mitjet Championships, and is entering the FIA World Endurance Championship this year.
Alexandre Coigny, COOL Racing project initiator for Target Le Mans 2020, said: “We were missing a Swiss watchmaker in our team therefore, I obviously approached Calim (Bouhadra, CEO of Rebellion Corporation).
“Rebellion is already very present in various championships, either as official timekeeper with Rebellion Timepieces, either as a successful racing team in the FIA WEC with Rebellion Racing.
“Our Swiss companies could only join together to write a beautiful story. We are both constantly in a race against the clock. I am looking forward to wearing my Twenty-One GMT Turquoise (color of our team) watch on my wrist very soon.”
Bouhadra added: “We are pleased to be able to support the COOL Racing team as a timing partner.
“COOL Racing is a Swiss team engaged in the finest endurance programs that are the ELMS and the FIA WEC. It was obvious, for Rebellion Timepieces, to join our common passions.
“We wish them a lot of success in these two championships in LMP2 category where competition is tough and severe. We are also delighted by the choice of the COOL Racing team that welcomes Nicolas Lapierre.”
The Twenty-One GMT Turquoise has a 46.95×17.40mm stainless steel case with anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
It has an interchangeable strap with a black rubberized base and a black leather integration with turquoise topstitching.
