REC’s New Watch Is Made With Metal From The ‘Eleanor’ Mustang Pony Car

Presented by

tracing back to the earliest days of motorized racing, watches and automobiles have just about always gone hand-in-hand — whether that’s in regards to style, inspiration, or practice. However, the folks at REC Watches are taking that connection to the next level with their new P-51 Eleanor timepiece.

Not only does this handsome watch boast a self-winding movement with a 48-hour power reserve, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and a 30-meter water-resistance rating — but its 44mm 316L stainless steel case was actually made from metal taken from a legendary vehicle. You see, the metal was sourced from a ’68 Ford Mustang Fastback that was being transformed into a replica of the legendary Eleanor Mustang from Jerry Bruckheimer’s Gone in 60 Seconds — one of the best car movies of all time. And while that automotive connection is exceedingly cool, it also means this watch is extremely limited — with just 498 examples built. So if you want one, you’d better act quickly. The REC Watches P-51 Eleanor is priced at $1,695 apiece.
