Under the curved sapphire crystal, an impressive mechanical display is revealed. The movement, designed by Concepto as a kinetic sculpture, adopts the same architecture as the T-1000 with its inclined balance. Assembled with 380 parts, this vertical movement, still hand-wound, is composed of six barrels that are recharged with energy using a lever. Each of them is decorated with a tire engraving that evokes the strong link between Rebellion Timepieces and motor racing. The hours and minutes are still displayed on parallel rollers. In addition to its long autonomy, the caliber also gains in precision compared to the T-1000 thanks to the frequency of its balance which increases to 28,800 vibrations per hour.
The eloxed movement covers come in a choice of five colors: blue, red, green, orange and black. Their presence enhances the design of the rectangular case, in titanium or black DLC titanium, topped with a round sapphire crystal. For a comfortable wear, the T-500 comes with a leather or rubber strap closed by a folding clasp.
