Denmark’s REC is a brand we’ve been fans of at worn&wound since we first saw their simple, quartz Mini-Cooper based watches a few years back. By utilizing reclaimed pieces of junked cars in their watches, they created a brand that celebrates iconic automobiles, giving owners a rare experience typically saved for high-priced luxury watches. The brand has matured greatly since then with last year’s P-51, Ford Mustang watch becoming a huge hit and gaining global recognition.
Today, we’re excited to have an exclusive first-look at their newest line of watches, the 901’s. These watches pick up the mantle of the P-51s, but set their eyes on another icon, the Porsche 911. Easily one of the most famous, coveted and recognizable vehicles ever created, the 911 is a fantastic source for inspiration that will drum up fans from around the world. As with all of their previous watches, these too feature a nice chunk of reclaimed 911 material that serves as the base of the dial. The rest of the watch takes cues from the car as well, but also has a distinct style of its own. It’s unique, aggressive and features some wild detailing.
There are three styles of the 901, each with a slightly different attitude, and all quite striking. Inside, the 901 features the Miyota 9100 movement, which has an array of useful complications, adding to the functionality of the watch. Through Kickstarter, the 901 has a starting price of $895, with an eventual retail of $1795, making it a bit of an investment, but one that 911 fans will likely jump on.
