Rebellion REB-5 Tourbillon
Horology is always in search of new characteristics, functions and grades of precision, but one of the most important features is novelty in appearance that defines the overall craftsmanship. In order to define the same, Rebellion and the setting workshop Bunter SA have succeeded in creating a REB-5 Tourbillon with diamonds set totally invisibly.
With the very best craftsmen and specialists, the settings are hidden from view and the diamonds are set sparkling brilliantly without the slightest sign of a fastener in sight. To develop and manage this state-of-the art technology, it took just under 1,000 man hours in design, research, development, the programming of the machines and tools, cutting of the diamonds, visual inspection of each part, setting, assembly and adjustment.
The REB-5 Tourbillon, with a mechanical tourbillion movement, has a seven-day power reserve and comes with a case in white gold with a total of 319 baguette diamonds (25.07 carats).
