The ultimate partner of adventure

The RNR Beachrunner is handcrafted from the roof of a 1981 Land Rover Series III - owned by Portuguese photographer and filmmaker, Daniel Espirito Santo and a close and personal companion to an artist living in the present (and for most of the time, in his car).

With an uncompromising approach to life, Daniel spends most of his days on the beaches of Peniche, Portugal, in his constant quest for that, one, perfect wave - shooting images along the way. The RNR Beachrunner is a testament to the laid-back lifestyle of owning a classic Land Rover.

Limited to 552 pieces.

Giving new life to a laid-back adventurer

Having established contact, we soon found out his beloved Land Rover needed a new roof. The constant salty winds and the salt water dripping from his surfboards had slowly, but surely eaten away vital parts of his roof. What had once been the metallic blanket for Daniel on his countless adventures and nights became the dial of a new and complex piece of machinery - the "face" of the new RNR Beachrunner timepiece.

Crafting a Swiss Made masterpiece from a majestic British icon

Every aspect of the RNR Beachrunner design reflects the function and aesthetic of the classic Land Rover Series III. Captivating the design DNA of the Land Rover has been no easy task and many years under development. 

Capturing the iconic design trademarks of the Land Rover while designing a timepiece that can completely stand on its own was no easy task. The imposing and majestic form factor of the Land Rover has been boiled down to a 40mm timepiece that pays homage to the British icon.

"With the RNR collection it was all about straight, square lines softened by the round elements found on the Land Rover - the shape of the wheel being one. We wanted to create a timepiece that spoke directly to the hearts of watch and Land Rover fans all over the world."

Designer of REC Watches, Thomas Funder

Crafting a Swiss made masterpiece from a majestic British icon

Captivating the design DNA of the Land Rover has been many years under development and the first, early sketch of what would later become the Beachrunner saw the light of day in the Autumn of 2018.

As always, no formula or predefined approach defines the process. We are constantly adding and constantly cutting away, working relentlessly to distill the essence until only the best parts remain encapsulated in pure passion.
