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.

Purchase: $1,695
