Wrist watch with square watch face is not new, but not many watchmakers can pull it off beautifully. In fact, we can only think of one: Bell & Ross, and just when we thought that’s it, we stumble upon the Rebel Automatic Chronograph Watch by LIV Watches. If you recall, LIV Watches made history when its Genesis X1-A Automatic Watch rolled in over a million in financial backing and watchmaker’s latest endeavor is also making quite a ding on Kickstarter with over a million in funding, making it the only Swiss watch to pass $1 million in sales on Kickstarter twice in a row.
Anyways, if you dig what LIV Watches did with the last timepiece, then you will love the Rebel too. Aesthetically, there’s nothing not to love about the Rebel – thanks in part to the multi-layered dial face that adds dimension to an otherwise flat face. While it is squarish, it does have some curves at the appropriate places (oh la la!), including a curved 316L stainless steel case for comfort wear. Three models are being offered: Rebel-AC Swiss Automatic Chronograph, Rebel-A Swiss Automatic, and Rebel-DDC Day-date Swiss Chronograph.
All three models share similar case design with each model sporting its own unique features, but whichever model you choose, you can expect common features like 100 m (328 feet) water resistant, push-in crown, date window, multi-layered dial face, BGW9 luminescence on hands and large indexes for low-light legibility, black or gray IP coating on 316L stainless steel, and scratch resistant sapphire with anti-reflective coating. Each timepiece is assembled by hand and as before, they are individually numbered and of limited edition. What the latter means is, once the assigned quantity to each model sold out, it is gone forever. So, in a way, this makes Rebel Automatic Watch collector-worthy.
If you are keen, you can pick up Rebel Automatic Watch by LIV Watches for between $259 and $790, depending on the model selected and when you back it, with delivery to happen sometime in September 2017. Check out the product pitch in the video after the images.
