REC Watches introduce another automotive collaborative collection, the 901 GW.

In collaboration with Gunther Werks, the California-based bespoke air-cooled Porsche 911 builder, REC introduces the new 901 GW limited edition Exoskeleton and Chelsea timepieces, infused with recycled carbon fiber.

Gunther Werks reimagines Porsche’s last air-cooled 911, the 993, by embedding modern technology into a classic masterpiece to evolve its DNA and performance to new heights. Their moto: function over form. During the resto-mod production process, each vehicle is transformed. The vehicle is stripped down to its frame and then cloaked in Gunther Werks’ in-house produced carbon fiber bodywork.

REC, short for “Recover, Recycle, Reclaim”, was founded in 2014 by Jonathan Kamstrup and Christian Mygh. Together they work to salvage excess material, namely metal, from iconic vehicles around the world, material that could not be reused in any restoration process and use it to create unique timepieces as a tribute to the vehicle. You may have already read about REC’s RNR ARKONIK inspired by the legendary Land Rover UJO. The timepiece’s dial is constructed from the metal of the right door, donated by leading Land Rover customization and craftsmanship specialist, ARKONIK.

For the 901 GW collection, Gunther Werks has provided REC Watches with carbon fiber from the build process. REC went onto create the 2-piece middle case by mixing the recycled carbon from the Gunther Werks car with forged carbon. Design references to the restored and modified Porsche are visible throughout. The engine X-brace and vented engine cover are referenced in the back case with laser-engraving and deep etching. The colored seats and interior are highlighted in the watch hands and strap stitching – red in the Chelsea and blue in the Exoskeleton.

The 901 GW striking look is designed not only to match the aesthetics of the donor vehicle, but also the sporty functions of the chronograph movement – the self-winding Swiss-made SELLITA SW510 B, Elaboré grade automatic. It contains 27 jewels, has 28’800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz), an accuracy of +15 seconds per day and power reserve of approximately 62 hours.
