THE 901-03, REC WATCHES
The 901 Recycled from Porsche 911’s
The 901 Collection is a mechanical timepiece.
The dial is cut directly from a salvaged, air-cooled Porsche 911 meaning every single timepiece is visibly unique and born with a story.
REC Watches and it’s products are not in any way associated or supported by Porsche AG or any of its affiliates.
A Unique Story
The very shape of the 901 is inspired by the silhouette of the Porsche 911. The 44 mm black PVD stainless steel case is standing in striking contrast to the patina dial salvaged from a vintage Porsche 911.
The 901-03 is on one hand subtle and discrete, on the other hand it is a sporty watch with the orange hands and stitching – paying homage to the black/orange colour combination of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The grey textured outer dial has the second indices written in the iconic Porsche font and curves slightly upwards creating a subtle 3D effect.
Driven by a self-winding, mechanical movement, the 901 collection never runs out of gas. The 9100 movement that runs under the hood of the 901-03 has a power reserve of more than 40 hours and is produced by the world-renowned company, Miyota, representing their top series of movements.
The Organ Donor
The 911 Porsche saw the dawn of light in 1963, when it was first introduced to the public at the Frankfurt Motor show in Germany. The design of the Porsche 911 traces its roots to the early sketches drawn in 1959 by automotive engineer and founder of Porsche, Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche.
The Porsche 911 replaced the Porsche 356 and was developed as a more powerful – yet at the same time comfortable – replacement.
Since the introduction of the 911, it has achieved a legendary status and is the sports car with the most iconic design as the 911 has stuck to its original design philosophy throughout the last 50 years. The 911 is world famous for its evolutionary design approach. A design that has stood the test of time to this day. So will your 901 timepiece.
The power reserve disc at 12 o’clock is created to resemble the fuel – and oil gauge of the early 911’s.On the 901-01 and 901-03 the back disc is all black when fully charged, whereas on the 901-02 the disc is all white when fully wound.
The 901 Collection has a power reserve of more than 40 hours.
Your 901 timepiece comes with a scanable Story Card – which is both NFC and QR compatible – taking you directly to a video documenting the stories, anecdotes and origin of the specific car which became part of your watch.
