REC Watches P-51 Collection

Two years ago Rec Watches introduced their first model, with dials made from scrap metal of classic Mini’s. These where a huge succes. The P-51 Collections had to be just as iconic as the origins the materials came from. So what better way to use one of the most iconic cars ever made, the Classis Ford Mustang.

Watch brands are using all kinds of material for the dials now a days. Ranging from natural fibers as, wood, mother of pearl, gems and so on. REC Watches has another point of view in recycling something thats already there. Hundred or maybe thousands used cars are found all over the world either getting used for spare parts of recycled to make other materials. REC Watches selected a number of Classic Mustangs to use the sheet metal for the watch dials. On the dial there are a few other marks to remind the owner of the origins of the material; two different kind of gauches from the car now tell the time and the power reserve. On the 10 o’clock hand it tells which car was the donor of that specific watch, year and VIN number included.

The Rotor of the movement is designed like the old hubcaps. and if you look closely to the side of the case you can also recognize the taillight of the mustangs back.
