    Catalogue Essay

     

    Sébastien Buemi is a Swiss world class champion motorsports driver who has been competing since 2004, and raced in numerous FIA Formula E Championships, and Formula One events. Rebellion Watches partnered with Buemi to design this Predator 2.0 Regulator watch for the 2017 Only Watch charity auction to benefit research for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

    This unique watch features a large and prominent central seconds hands filling the entire dial, while the individual hour and minute sub dials are separated and placed at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock, respectively, providing an unconventional and contemporary method to indicate time. A date aperture is at 4 o’clock, with a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. The case is made of black DLC-coated titanium and carbon fiber, which is flecked with yellow - Buemi’s lucky color.

    It is interesting to note that on October 7th, 2017 Sébastien Buemi drove a Rebellion team car repainted with the Only Watch colors at the annual Petit Le Mans ten hour endurance race at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia USA. The watch is preserved in excellent condition and accompanied by a corresponding piece unique Rebellion/Sébastien Buemi presentation box, certificate of authenticity, and Kubik winding mechanism. Generously donated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the watch is being sold to benefit the missions of One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

  • The objectives supported by TIME COUNTS

     

    Tackling global water issues and improving the living conditions of some of the most vulnerable populations around the world.

    In the wake of COVID-19, there’s never been more pressure on the global community to address water issues. Handwashing being one of the most important behaviors to decrease the propagation of all kinds of viruses, it goes without saying that safe water needs to be accessible. Unfortunately, over 2.2 billion people lack access to safe water at home.  

     

    All net proceeds from the TIME COUNTS charitable initiative will go to improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations around the world by providing sustainable access to safe water and encouraging the adoption of healthy hygiene behaviors.  

     

    TIME COUNTS will also enable One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to fund a large-scale program resulting from a joint call for proposals launched earlier this year by both foundations. Applicant organizations have submitted projects to improve resilience and ensure sustainable and equitable access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services for communities in need, with particular emphasis placed on issues affecting extremely poor and marginalized populations. The final selection will be announced in early 2021.  

     

    Together, let’s make the world a more sustainable place for all.

     

    Phillips will remit to One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation the next proceeds from the Buyer’s premium.

     

     

    One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation join forces for a vital cause.

  • The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation

     

    Inspired by his own observations and in the light of the alarming scientific evidence, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco made a personal commitment by launching, in 2006, his Foundation to act against the environmental dangers threatening our planet and making populations vulnerable. The Foundation focuses its efforts on three principal domains of action: climate change, biodiversity and water resources, and funds initiatives in the fields of research and studies, technological innovation and socially aware practices. In order to take action for the protection of nature, the Foundation supports projects in three main geographical regions: the Mediterranean Basin, the Polar Regions and the Least Developed Countries.
