REC - Porsche 901 - Steel
by REC Watches
The PORSCHE 901. Rebuilt and reborn from the chassis of a classic Porsche 911, this wristwatch is the epitome of creative passion and fearless experimentation from Rec Watches.
The '901' was the original name of the Porsche model before Peugeot sued Porsche. Peugeot had licensed any model name with the 3 numbers, and specifically the 0 in the middle - for example 306, 408, and 901. By that time, Porsche had already manufactured the badges for their cars, and cleverly decided to drop the 0 and double the 1. Now the 911 is legendary in the minds of motor enthusiasts around the world. We think it's more catchy anyway!
Recycled from a classic, air-cooled Porsche 911, with original VIN (will be unique to each watch). Years vary between 1982-1985.
The very shape of the watch is strongly inspired by the soft corners and characteristic rear air grille of the iconic Porsche 911.
Visually unique watch dial, cut straight from the Porsche chassis itself.
The face and hands feature time, day, date, month, all inspired by the classic 911 dashboard, something a true 911 aficionado will spot immediately.
The Power Reserve Disc at 12o'clock is created to resemble the fuel and oil gauge of early 911's.
The caseback is inspired by the original 911 rims designed by Otto Fuchs. The rotor on the movement is decorated to resemble the drilled brake discs of the classic 911's.
316L Stainless Steel Case.
Superluminova on hands & indices - glow in the dark!
