We take trades against any of our watches!!! Every single REC timepiece incorporates salvaged, recycled parts from iconic vehicles that are beyond repair. A concept we named RECOVER, RECYCLE, RECLAIM - or just REC for short.Due to the variations of patina in the recycled dials, all of our watches are visibly unique, has its own story to tell and features design references to the car from which it was partly made. Weve put our hearts, souls and more work than we care to think about into these collections striving to hit a perfect blend of distinctive designs, subtle references, handmade premium components and truly unique storytelling! The P-51 Eleanor dial is recycled directly from the trunk let of a rebuild 68 Ford Mustang Fastback Eleanor first introduced in 2000 in the Jerry Bruckheimer blockbuster Gone in 60 Seconds.
Our Eleanor organ donor is based on a 1968 Fastback and was recovered in Saintes, Belgium. Built by two Belgian brothers, she was put on a poster for their annual American car show. So, they had to build one specifically for the show. The trunk let removed and changed from the 68 Mustang in the process of transforming her into Eleanor was then given a new life.After the paint was removed from the Eleanor trunk let, we managed to punch 498 dials all of which were coated with a clear lacquer to make sure the original patina of this 51-year old legend stayed intact and visible. Centered around the recycled dial, our ambition was then to create a watch that honored the same design principles that made the Eleanor such an icon. With the soul of the Eleanor captivated in the recycled dial, the main challenge was to build a watch around it.
It had to be elegant, racy and masculine but at the same time: It had to stand out on its own. In our dedication to reclaim the Eleanor, we found inspiration in the curves, rims, racing stripes, chrome elements and the unique counters of the 68 Mustang Eleanor.
Both the Eleanor car and our classic P-51 timepiece (first introduced in 2015) are based on the classic Mustang. And just like creator of the Eleanor, Chip Foose, we also had to rethink the classic Mustang in our pursuit to give life to the Limited Edition P-51 Eleanor. The P-51 Eleanor captivates the DNA of one of the most sought-after Mustangs ever created. MODEL: P-51 Limited Edition #331/498.
