REC watches uses marine grade 316L stainless steel for all its watch cases. The Cooper is no exception. 316L is mainly used in the aerospace industry due to its extremely durable nature. An enduring resistance applied to the entire REC line-up. Including the entry-level Cooper. Parred with the brown textured leather strap, the Cooper is a classic watch paying tribute the classic car from which it was partly made.
The original Mini (Mark I) is by many considered an icon of 1960s British popular Culture. Its space-saving transverse engine front-wheel drive layout influenced car makers all around the world for generations to come. And as a matter of fact, the Mini was awarded the second most influential car of the 20th Century – only surpassed by the Ford Model T.
Presented in August 1959 the Mini was introduced as a small economy car. It wasn’t until 1969 the word "MINI" became a marque in its own right when it replaced the separate "Austin Mini" and "Morris Mini" car model names.
Performance versions of the classic Minis took the name Cooper, after partnership with racing legend and car maker John Cooper. The Mini Cooper and Cooper S were both successful as race and rally cars winning several championships.
Every single Cooper timepiece comes with a brochure telling you the story of the specific car that became your watch – along with a copy of the car’s original logbook.
