A Truly Unique Concept



We identify and recover salvaged icons from all over the world, tracking it's origin and previous owners to tell the story.

Born with a story 30-60 years old



The components of the salvaged icon is recycled to the extent possible, preserving as much of the patina as possible.

Visually unique No two watches are identical



The recycled components are repurposed as components in a brand new and utterly unique timepiece honoring the original design.

Built to last a lifetime Highest grade components

Every watch tells a story

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.

We’ve 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!
