A Unique Story

Every single 901 timepiece is visibly unique. With the dial being made from a salvaged Porsche 911 there are noticeable differences between every watch as the patina differs from dial to dial. No two watches are alike.

50 years of Porsche DNA

The rebirth of the 901 Collection started with a worldwide search for the perfect car. The donated 911 was then sent to a smithy on Falster - an island in the south-eastern part of Denmark. In this process the car parts were rolled flat and straightened in order to press out the dials from the metal sheets.

The engine

The see-through caseback reveals the heart of the 901 Collection – the 9100 movement produced by the world-renowned company, Miyota. Not only is the caseback inspired by the original 911 rims, the rotor on the movement is decorated to resemble the drilled brake discs of the classic 911’s.

Design references

The power reserve disc at 12 o'clock is created to resemble the fuel - and oil gauge of the early 911's.

On the 901-01 and 901-03 the back disc is all black when fully charged, whereas on the 901-02 the disc is all white when fully wound.

The 901 Collection has a power reserve of more than 40 hours.
The dial is cut directly from a salvaged Porsche 911 and coated with a grey, semi-transparent lacquer. This ensures no two watches are identical due to the scratches in the patina dial.

The contrast in the rough dial and the brushed and polished 316L stainless steel case sets the 901 apart from any other watch out there.
The face and hands of the 901 Collection features 4 functions:

  • Time
  • Day
  • Date
  • Month
All are inspired by the classic 911 dashboard. Something a true 911 aficionado will spot immediately.
The seconds indices around the outer dial is written in the iconic Porsche font.

The beauty is in the details and we wanted the 901 Collection to pay tribute to the car from which it was partly made as well as having its own identity and standing on its own feet. In all honesty, we would argue that the mission is accomplished.
The caseback is inspired by the highly distinctive Otto Fuchs rims of the classic 911's – and even the rotor is decorated to resemble the drilled brake discs!

The iconic "Fuchsfelge" was designed by Otto Fuchs in the early 1960's, when Porsche approached the designer as they needed a very special wheel for their prototype of what was to become the Porsche 911. The rest is history.
The crown itself is designed to mirror the horn cap of the early 911 steering wheels.

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 very shape of the 901 collection is strongly inspired by the soft corners and characteristic rear air grille of the iconic Porsche 911.

The 911 is perhaps the most iconic sports car of all time and looking at the design now and then, the changes have been subtle. A clear indicator that the 911 design stood the test of time. So will your 901 timepiece.
Every single watch is engraved with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the salvaged 911 from which it was made – not to be mistaken with the serial number of your watch which you find on the caseback.

The VIN plate cut-away area is a discrete reference to the number plate cut-in of the modern 911's.

Story Card

The scanable Story Card that comes along with your 901 watch is both NFC and QR compatible. It takes you directly to a video documenting the stories, anecdotes and origin of the specific 911 which became part of your watch!

In this process, we have carefully identified and spoken with as many of the former owners we could find.
