REC 901 Automatic Watch Review: Made From Recycled Porsche 911 Cars

The self-winding automatic nods to the 911’s classic quintet of circular gauges. As you might suspect, the Porsche watch costs more than the Ford, but only slightly, at $1,695. Both Porsche and Ford watches feature a stainless steel, 44-mm case. Their mechanical movement is Japanese, not Swiss, though its Swiss-targeting Miyota components include hand- and automatic winding, and a power reserve of 48 hours for the P-51 and 40-plus-hours for the 901. Bargain hunters can choose from two watches made from recycled Mini Cooper metal, including this Mark I M1, quite handsome for a merely $395 watch.

Mygh and Kamstrup are calling on people to voteto help them decide the donor for their next watch line: A Willys Jeep, BMW M3 E30, Alfa Romeo Duetto, Triumph Bonneville motorcycle or Supermarine Spitfire fighter plane. Personally, I’m leaning toward a classic AMC Pacer, with a bubble-shaped crystal and the tendency to run behind schedule, if it works at all.
