A Unique Story

The P-51 has more than 50 years of history captivated in one watch. Paying tribute to the Ford Mustang’s of the 1960’s, the P-51 dial is made from vintage Mustang parts and has several design references to the iconic muscle car.

No cars were harmed in the process

The two founders of REC watches are as much car fanatics as they are watch fanatics. This is why no car was harmed in the salvaging process. REC Watches only use cars that are beyond repair.

The engine

The 9130 automatic movement in the P-51 is delivered by the world-renowned company, Miyota. With a power reserve of 48 hours you will most definitely never run out of gas.

The Organ Donor

In 1964 Ford launched a new age of American sports cars: The Ford Mustang. Although viewed by many as the "original" Muscle Car, the Mustang didn´t start out as one. Lee Iacocca, Vice President of Ford at the time, wanted to give the American market a car which weighed under 2.500 lbs. priced at under $2.500.

The very same day the Mustang was introduced in 1964, Ford dealerships sold a record-breaking 22.000 Mustangs. The Mustang was an instant hit, and Ford sold more than 400.000 Mustangs in their very first year of production, making the Mustang an indisputable success.


In 1967 the Mustang received a major facelift with the introduction of the new ´67 Fastback, regarded by many as one of the finest looking American sports cars ever made. And if the legacy-of-cool was not already apparent to everyone, it was further cemented in 1968 with the release of the iconic "Bullitt" film, featuring Steve McQueen blazing a ´68 Fastback through the steep streets of San Francisco.

Still, after a tumultuous period including numerous radical design changes to the Mustang during the 70s, 80s and 90s, it was not until 2005 that Ford would go back to the roots of the original Mustang design. The new S197 design was a direct testament to the classic 60s Mustang, and this highly popular throwback styling has defined the modern Mustang ever since.

Design references

The design of the power reserve is inspired by the fuel gauge of the classic Ford Mustang.

But whereas on the classic Mustang the E(empty) indicator is on the left we reversed this on the P-51 due to the mechanical movement in the P-51.
Every P-51 timepiece is engraved with the unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and year of the salvaged Mustang that was used to make the P-51 timepiece.

The number of timepieces made from the specific Mustang depends on the car and the parts donated to REC Watches – meaning some timepieces are made in very limited numbers as low as 250.
The dial is the real star of the show as it ensures the uniqueness in every single P-51 timepiece due to the fact that no two dials are alike.

Every dial used in the P-51 is recycled and always unique - cut from the body of a salvaged Ford Mustang and coated with a clear layer of lacquer. This ensures that the “patina” in the dial does not spread to other parts of the watch.
The three-hand & date function is inspired by the original Mustang Dashboard.

This reference is sized down in order to showcase even more of the beautiful patina dial. The dashboard inspiration gives the P-51 a vintage feel and even the font used on the dial is borrowed from the original Mustang.
The rotor decoration on the P-51 is inspired by the Classic Mustang hubcaps design. The design of the hubcaps was presented on the first generation of Ford Mustangs when it was initially introduced in 1964.

The founders of REC Watches have always been big fans of this design why it became part of the P-51 design.
The crown is designed to mirror the gas cap of the classic Mustang GT350. The REC logo on the crown has a story of its own.

Look carefully and you will notice three gears: One for Recover, one for Recycle, one for Reclaim– the very DNA of the REC concept.
The iconic Mustang rear lights are subtly laser-engraved on the right-hand side of the P-51 timepiece.

Some would argue that the Mustang rear lights are as iconic as the Fuchs rims on the Porsche 911. And actually, you will find them even today on the newest generation of Mustangs.
The silhouette of the classic Ford Mustang is reflected within the shape of the P-51 case.

The square case is concave – with both sides of the watch falling towards the crown raising the top and bottom edge of the watch and adding extra depth to the P-51 timepiece.
The laser-engraved Mustang grill is showcased on the left-hand side of the P-51. Yet a subtle design reference, you will not notice unless you know it is there – or you put it on your wrist where it belongs.

As the ultimate tribute, we changed the iconic Mustang horse with REC.
