Here are the details, straight from the source -

Remy Cruz is a timepiece and jewellery brand that has just introduced a new Limited Edition series. The Rébellion Sauvage Titanium 5 watch is limited to just 99 pieces following a 1.5 year R&D and trial process. The watch is powered by a 100% Swiss made movement. The hours are indicated via a polycarbon disc (the same material used for the canopy of F22 Raptor warplanes) minutes and seconds are indicated with custom made hands. 

The watch breaks new ground in that it is the first time a technique known as ‘cartouche cadran’, first developed for pocket watches in the 1700s, has been employed on a wrist watch. The gold pattern is attached mechanically on the case and dial at the same time without the use of a single bolt, screw, pinch, rivet or adhesive. The design team worked with a medical implantmanufacturer to achieve precision. The 18 K gold pattern takes its inspiration from ancient warrior sword patterns. 

The ‘Fellis’ case has the crown at 12h, and the watch comes on a hand crafted ’Jericho’ calf black leather strap in red, grey or black stitch.

The Rébellion Sauvage model has a double barrel movement with around 120 hours of power reserve. Possible customizations: Pattern made of white gold/platinium; Special pattern application for companies,celebrities...; With the Remy Cruz logo engraved on the rotor ; Zirconium treatment on the case body; Strap stitch option black/grey; The numbered edition selection; Individual COSC certificate is available on demand.
