Limited Edition of 498 Pieces.
Danish brand REC Watches presents the P-51 Eleanor, a Limited Edition timepiece incorporating metal from the trunk let of a 68 Mustang Fastback that was transformed into the Eleanor in 2017. 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 51year old legend stayed intact and visible. Centered around the recycled dial, their ambition was then to create a watch that honored the same design principles that made the Eleanor such an icon.

The black central dial with three hands and date is inspired by the dashboard of the Ford Mustang.
Each P-51 watch is engraved with the unique vehicle identification number (VIN) and the year of the recovered Mustang that was used to make the P-51 watch, which can be found on the back of the watch, up to 498 copies. .
