These Watches Are Made With Recycled Metal From Akira Nakai’s Porsche 911s

With literally thousands of available watches on the market right now, those that stand out can no longer simply be well-built. Rather, they need to have a story worth telling. And for those that love fast cars and vehicle customization, REC has a pair of handsome timepieces that definitely have a story worth telling in their 901 RWB watches.

For those unfamiliar, these watches were crafted in conjunction with Akira Nakai, the famed tuner and founder of RWB. In fact, both of them — the Stella and Rotana — feature hand-cut dials recycled from Mr. Nakai’s personal Porsche 911s. But it goes deeper than that, too. Along with reliable Miyota calibre 9100 automatic self-winding movements, PVD-coated 316L steel cases, and 5 ATM water-resistance ratings, they are also both done up with styling cues taken directly from the cars that inspired them. Furthermore (and due to the nature of their construction), they’re both being produced in extremely limited quantities — just 305 examples of each, to be exact. Available now, pricing is set at $1,795 and customers can even choose their own serial number — but you can punch in the presale code 15%-OFF-RWB for an additional 15% discount.
