REC Watches Featured
About REC: In 2014 fellow Danes Christian and Jonathan, two childhood friends, decided to merge their two passions for cars and watches and create something unique around these two obsessions. The concept behind REC is simple as there is no made up storytelling behind the brand, rather the storytelling is built directly within the watches as we incorporate components of automotive icons within our watches. The result is automotive watches unlike any other. Adding these small components within the watches creates a natural side effect as every watch truly unique, furthermore each run of watches is naturally limited due to the recycled automotive components. For each line of watches we create a unique design, as we strive to encapsulate all the design references from the particular car and boil them down into a watch design. Our goal is to create something that not only speaks to the enthusiast of the particular icon but also is an interesting watch in itself speaking to a broader spectrum of automotive enthusiasts. About the collaboration: The project began with California-based Gunther Werks posing a hypothetical question: What if Porsche had developed a 993 GT3RS?From the process of creating the 993 GT3RS, Gunther Werks offered us with the opportunity to use carbon fiber from the roof panels of the Exoskeleton and the Chelsea Grey build process. We then granulated and reforged this material with new carbon fiber to create the visible middle section of the 901 GW Exoskeleton and Chelsea case. Developed in close collaboration with Gunther Werks founder and CEO Peter Nam, these ultra-limited edition timepieces have been designed to capture the unique blend of rugged beauty and superlative performance that characterizes all Gunther Werks creations.

Once this is complete, the car is fitted with a 4.0 L naturally aspirated air-cooled engine, hand-built and expertly tuned by Rothsport Racing to develop over 400 bhp and 330 lb/ft. Gunther Werks provided us with carbon fiber from the roof panels of the Exoskeleton and the Chelsea Grey build process, which we granulated and reforged with new carbon fiber to produce the visible middle section of the 901 GW Exoskeleton and Chelsea case.
