'PORSCHE 901' Steel - Wristwatch by REC

By REC Watches

$2,295.00

The PORSCHE 901. Rebuilt, re-thought, re-birthed from the chassis of a classic Porsche 911, this wristwatch is the epitome of creative passion and fearless experimentation from the Danish duo. Crafted in Denmark, obsolete 911's from the air-cooled era are carefully attended to, and the best remaining parts of the wreck, used as the dials.

With the shoulder-line of the iconic silhouette, and the grill from the rear, the purest essence has been translated. Our favourite is the original wheel design by Otto Fuchs at the rear of the watch, and the drilled brake-disc rotor of the automatic movement, displayed through 5 panels of sapphire crystal... Insane details!

The '901' was the original name of the model before Peugeot had sued Porsche. Peugeot had licensed any model name with the 3 numbers, and specifically 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 'overuse' the number '1', twice. Now the 911 is concrete in the minds of motor enthusiasts around the world. We think it's more catchy anyway!
