UPCYCLED from an original, British-Made Mini Cooper, the Minimalist allows you to peer into a raw, unhindered view of the vehicle, as it once was. Simplistic in design - Spoken for itself.

The scratches and marks on the watch-dial will be unique to each piece, as they are all individually hand-finished and 'absorbed' from the chassis. It is then cleaned, and made sure of no leftover paint particles, and finished to prevent rust. This is to be enjoyed, in its purity!

Each watch includes a piece of documentation on the origin of the car - Its VIN number, detailing the specific history of the vehicle, and its provenance. 

A revitalisation of an icon. 



- The metal of the dial of this timepiece is up-cycled directly from a classic Mini Cooper, from 1969-1978. Pieces will differ. Please inquire if you need any further information!

- PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition - Basically a great and reliable black-coating!) 316L stainless steel case - contrasts with the unique, raw dial...
