Read the time from a recycled Porsche 911


Rec is a brand that recovers, recycles and reclaims iconic cars from the past and turns them into watches. After creating watches made from vintage Mustang and Mini parts a new collection called 901 Automatic is (almost) ready to launch. The collection features three new watch designs made from salvaged and recycled classic Porsche 911’s built between ’64 and ’79.

Rec spent roughly a year on the development of the 901 Automatic. Unfortunately the finished product isn’t ready yet – there’s still only prototypes available but these creations and the early-stage technical drawings and sketches of the collection are very promising. Rec expects to officially launch the recycled Rec Porsche watch March 31st so stay tuned for the finale product. Read the second part about the Rec project in which we show you some of the many Porsche 911 design references that laid the foundation for the design of the 901 Automatic.
