A Unique Story

All REC watches are partly made from salvaged, classic icons that are beyond repair. The see-through case back of the Cooper shows the beautiful dial made from classic Minis along with the VIN number of the car from which your watch origins. Every dial is visibly unique making sure no two watches are identical. Due to the patina of the handcrafted metal of the recycled Mini, the dial may vary.

The Organ Donor

The original Mini 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.
