REC Watches is well-known throughout the horological world, thanks, in large part, to the company’s relentless pursuit of unique inspiration. A vast majority of the brand’s offerings harken back to iconic mechanical wonders like the Spitfire aircraft, Mini Cooper hatchback, and Ford Mustang pony car; but the 901 — a heritage-imbued timekeeper that honors the legacy of Porsche’s legendary 911 — is arguably its most sophisticated.

To create the sleek, suave wristwatch, REC relies on three conceptual pillars: RECover, RECycle, and REClaim. Through this process, the company has made it its mission to find and recover only the most notable components from the 911, ensuring that each and every piece of metal has been meticulously vetted for quality and consistency. After the donor vehicle’s restoration process, a suitable piece of spare metal is acquired, followed aptly by paint removal, dial sculpting, and implementation directly into the 901 timepieces. After the metal has found a new life within the watch, a coat of clear lacquer is placed over the top, protecting its one-of-a-kind patina for years to come. Aesthetically, REC’s 901 model mimics the Porsche 911’s timeless silhouette, calling upon its recognizable grille, shapely body, wheels, and dashboard to keep the watch both classy, and elegant. If you’re looking for a unique timepiece to accent your love for air-cooled culture, the 901 comes in three different styles and retails for $1,695 on REC’s website.
