Rebellion Timepieces Re-Volt Ronaldinho: watchmaking is a celebration!
Rebellion Timepieces’ brand new Re-Volt Ronaldinho, imagined hand-in-hand with the Brazilian football star, reflects his personality perfectly: compromise-free!
No footballer could be better than Ronaldinho to epitomize passion for competition, a creative spirit and resilience. Given his swiftness, his abilities and qualities, football fans have compared him to Pelé. Ronaldinho’s versatility on the pitch has made him a real free spirit. He’s unclassifiable, has an offbeat personality and delights in pushing beyond his comfort zone and heading off the beaten track. As a man of integrity, Ronaldinho lives life to the full without making concessions! His daring, maverick style is perfectly in tune with that of watches imagined by Rebellion Timepieces.
This talented Brazilian’s ability to imagine the match, to baffle his opponents, to always give top-level performances, led him to be awarded the Ballon d’Or in 2005, the highly-coveted European distinction. And, the FIFA also named him World Player of the Year the same season. His consistency also led him to be acclaimed in his homeland where he won the local Ballon d’Or in 2012. With all his qualities, the Brazilian star has taken centerstage for a host of major European clubs, from PSG to Milan AC and FC Barcelona.
Ronaldinho, Rebellion’s new ambassador, extremely generous both on and off the pitches, was involved in creating a watch that reflects his personality, 100% rebel. This limited edition, reiterating the iconic Re-Volt’s architectural lines, stands out with its vibrant colors, representing the Brazilian flag, which boost the sporty character of this disruptive model. In a nutshell, its colored carbon-crafted case mixes dashes of high-tech material black with yellow and green that reigns supreme and symbolizes the Amazon forest. The solar shade that echoes the country’s fertile earth adorns the bridges and indexes, amongst other features. As for blue, it conjures up a perfect sky, totally free from clouds that could darken everyday life. Here, this allegorical hue sets off the minute tracker, the Velcro®-clasped textile-fashioned strap and the small seconds decorated with the iconic R10, a nod to the number the champion wore during his professional career. On the caseback, the footballer’s signature highlights this timepiece’s one-of-a-kindness.
And, just like the sensual rhythm of a samba, the beat of the hand-wound skeletonized movement breathes life accurately into the revolutions of the hour and minute hands. When Ronaldinho meets Rebellion, watchmaking becomes a celebration!
The timepiece is available in a limited series of 25 pieces.
