'PORSCHE 901' Continental Orange/Black - Wristwatch by REC

The PORSCHE '901'

Rebuilt, re-thought, and re-birthed from the chassis of a classic Porsche 911. The original numbers are used to pay homage to the history between Peugeot and Porsche...!

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, transcended into the watch, for the dial.

With the shoulder-line of the iconic silhouette; the grill of the engine vent... the most iconic elements are translated. Our favourite is the homage paid to the original wheel design by Otto Fuchs at the rear of the watch, displaying the drilled brake-disc rotor of the automatic movement, via 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'. Now the 911 is concrete in the minds of motor enthusiasts around the globe. We think it's more catchy anyway!
