REC Watches presents the P-51 Automatic collection inspired by the Ford Mustangs of the ‘60s

Making a compelling case of visually unique watches is the P-51 Automatic collection from REC watches, taking after the make of the sporty 1960s' Ford Mustang car for an automobile-inspired spin that goes beyond skin-deep appearance. Indeed, not just based on the aesthetics of the iconic American coupe, the collection is crafted using repurposed materials from said Ford Mustangs, integrating the metal of the car into the fabrication of the watches for a distinct, customised timepiece.

REC Watches P-51 Automatic collection

Born from the eco-conscious ethics of a contemporary Danish maison whose specialised salvaged-to-stylish process creates pieces cut in ruggedly masculine silhouettes, the P-51 is replete with a handmade dial, date indicator and a power reserve display reminiscent of a car's fuel gauge. Forged in stainless steel in a 44mm by 44mm frame, these Mustang-made watches also bear a plaque with a one-of-a-kind vehicle identification number from the car it was built from.

With horsepower in the form of a highly reliable Miyota 9130 automatic movement, the P-51 collection is a functional fashion statement tinged with the universal iconography of the Ford Mustang - a fine-tuned symbol of freedom and innovation.

The REC Watches P-51 Automatic collection is available at All Watches boutiques.
