Rebellion Regulator REB-7 Blue Version Watch
While I think Rebellion watches are cool and exciting, I personally don't get super excited about them. Sound ironic? Maybe it is, but I feel like I got excited the first time I saw a Rebellion watch, and each time after that, it is just more of the same. Now the Rebellion DNA has been enhanced with the suave look of electric blue and steel. The case is 46mm wide, 56mm tall, and 20mm thick.
Rebellion is no BS brand. All Swiss, they also make their own, in-house made movements. Inside this new Rebellion Regulator REB-7 Blue Version watch is the REB-7 automatic movement with the regulator complication (and date). The date is read through the small window close to 6 o'clock, with an exposed numeral ring. aside from futuristic steel composure of the watch, all the hands and hour numeral information is in blue. Being a regulator, the subsidiary dial at the top is for the hours. Normally, a regulator watch would have another subsidiary dial for the seconds, but here the middle dial is used for the minutes and the seconds. The dial is covered with a large sapphire crystal and has some of its edges exposed. Sure to have good legibility due to double AR coating on said crystal.
The complex watch case has over 40 parts to it. Watches like this can sometimes be so visually complex, reading the time is a chore. A bit less of the case here, but don't get a watch like this thinking it is as easy to read as a Rolex Submariner for example. Not sure about price at this point, but recognize that Rebellion is a high-end luxury watch brand.
