The Minimalist - L1

By REC Watches


Update: This watch is coming to an end shortly... To make way for the upcoming and exciting watch re-made from a vintage Porsche 911. Stay tuned :)

Up-cycled from a vintage Mini Cooper, the "L1" is kept to the bare minimum... Allowing each glance at the wrist to be a different angle of the raw, yet refined part of the original chassis! No extra functions, nor accessories - Just the time, and the essence of the Mini.
