Exceptional Sale at Top Marques Monaco

24 April 2019

The Top Marques Motor Show edition in May will celebrate the historic association between supercars and exceptional watches. This next edition will surprise you with two unique pieces of 4 million euros with Rebellion Timepieces!

The 16th edition of Top Marques, placed under the patronage of S.A.S. Prince Albert II of Monaco, will also showcase the most beautiful collections of Haute Horlogerie from all over the world, alongside exclusive supercars.

One of the highlights of the 2019 edition, which will take place at the GRIMALDI FORUM, MAY 30 TO JUNE 3, 2019, will be presented on the Rebellion Timepieces booth.

Although it is not unusual for a signature watch to be associated with the sale of a supercar, the Swiss watchmaker, Top Marques's leading watch sponsor, will do the opposite: two exceptional pieces whose sale represents 4 million euros.

Thus, the Rebellion R-One LMP1-P race car - winner of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016, as well as 6 trophies at the FIA-World Endurance Championship - will be associated with a

UFO watchmaker, the Magnum 540 Grand Tourbillon Sapphire. Its sapphire box, the craziest ever made, has a work of 47'600 minutes of diamond milling, 99

days, to extract the eight elements that make up his case of specially cut sapphire blocks. A timeless bet that transcends the magic of transparency and unique

in the Swiss Haute Horlogerie industry.

Mr. Salim Zeghdar, new owner of Top Marques, says:

"I am delighted that Rebellion Timepieces is supporting us for our next edition by bringing a unique exhibition to this great event, which is a world first for us!

The person who buys the duo (watch and car) will also be invited to test and take control of his car with the race drivers who have won Le Mans. The happy

buyer will also be invited as a VIP by the Rebellion team to all races of the FIA ​​World Endurance Championship for the upcoming season. It's just magical, and I'm very

happy to have at my side the watchmaker Rebellion."

Presented by Bloomberg TV as "the # 1 auto show par excellence" and "the most exclusive auto show in the world" by the New York Times, Top Marques - acquired last August by

the Monaco Check-In event company - will be held, for the first time this year, in the continuity of the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Among the car exhibitors already confirmed for this edition are iconic brands such as Pagani, McLaren, Ferrari, Bugatti, Bentley, Porsche and Lamborghini.


Great watchmakers such as Greubel Forsey, Roger Dubuis and Bovet 1822 have all confirmed their participation in the show.

Greubel Forsey will present its new Art Piece Edition Historique, a timepiece that crowns an avant-garde aesthetic approach that has already led to several creations





Roger Dubuis, driven by an avant-garde watchmaking spirit, with a penchant for powerful mechanisms, will present his new collection, the Excalibur Huracàn, an iconic collection

developed in partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse.

The Swiss watch brand Bovet 1822 will also be present in the space dedicated to Watches, with extraordinary technical and aesthetic innovations. Bovet 1822 will exhibit The Recital

22 Grand Récital, Grand Prix winner of the Aiguille d'Or, and its Recital 26 Brainstorm ®Chapter One.
