Upcycled Automotive Timepieces

This REC Watch is Made From Original Porsche 911 Parts

— April 5, 2017 — Autos
The Porsche 911 is one of the world's most iconic cars, with tens of millions of models sold since its initial release in 1963. Although the cost of such cars are prohibitive for most people, this doesn't mean you cannot have your own piece of a Porsche 911 for a more modest price tag.

This was the idea behind The 901 Collection from REC, which features unique watch designs made from salvaged Porsche 911s. But don't be fooled: just because the timepieces are made from salvaged parts, it doesn't mean that REC offers second-tier watches. On the contrary, the manufacturer boasts cutting-edge technology and materials such as: a sapphire crystal glass with three layers of anti-reflective coating, a power reserve feature to prolong the watch's battery life, a transparent back with mineral crystals and more.

One of the best features of the watches has to be the SuperLuminova lighting, which sets it apart every time you wear it at night.
