The Green Hornet was an experimental styling car with Shelby scoops, rear spoiler and the genesis of the Mustang California Special. It was given to Carroll Shelby by Ford, who started experimenting on the car with bigger engines and the newest tech that Ford was working. An electronic fuel injection made the green Mustang way ahead of its time.
At the time Fords’ policy was to destroy prototype vehicles to avoid them entering circulation. Somehow Green Hornet avoided its fate.
In 2018 the car was fully restored to its former glory. In this process excess sheet metal from the restoration process was donated to REC Watches and built directly into the design of the limited edition P-51 timepiece.
Being granted the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to use these components from the mythological legend in our timepieces, we made a promise to owner Mr. Craig Jackson that our timepieces would honor the automotive history, the cars represent.
"REC Watches goes to extraordinary means to find unique artifacts and put these into a brand new timepiece. That intrigued me, coming off with enough sheet metal to build into the watch. They do it in a way that keep the patina and they build the watch to represent the vehicle."
Craig Jackson - Car Collector, Restorer, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson Auction Company
When we started working on the design in early 2019, we had two overall goals: We wanted the design to reflect its mythological siblings as well as creating a watch that stands on its own.
Secondly, we wanted to create something more wearable for all wrist sizes and therefore downscaled the size to 42 mm.
Creating a watch that honors the design of the most iconic Mustang ever built has been one of our greatest challenges yet. A true Mustang aficionado will immediately recognize all the small design references whereas a watch fan will appreciate the masculine and original design of our latest collection.
