We told you all about REC Watches and its upcoming line of Mustang-based timepieces a few months ago (if you’re just tuning in you can read all about the concept here: REC Watches Has Set Out to Deliver a Uniquely Mustang Timepiece. We’ve been keeping tabs on REC’s Kickstarter campaign and we’re happy to report that not only did they reach their goal, but it was funded over 228% of the initial goal by Mustang and watch enthusiasts all over the world! The Kickstarter campaign is now over and production on the P-51 Mustang watch line will be starting soon, and this is where Mustang owners like you can be involved and even earn a FREE watch!

REC Watches is located in Copenhagen, Denmark, which makes the search and recycling of Mustang parts a struggle for its latest line of watches. As such, REC Watches is looking to Mustang owners worldwide to help secure metal to create the P-51 Mustang collection. The P-51 Mustang watch collection is the first in the REC Watches line that will feature a story card, which can be scanned via a smart phone or tablet that will take you to a short documentary video on the actual car your watch was created from. Furthermore, each watch will include the actual Mustang’s VIN on the face and on the back of the case. If you have a vintage Mustang that is beyond repair sitting in your shop or out back behind the barn and you feel it has an interesting story or history, you can help REC Watches and make yourself a few bucks in the process! If you’re interested, simply reach out to REC Watches at cm@recwatches.com and they’ll go over the process in detail of purchasing your Mustang, how and where to cut the metal, ship it, etc.

Do you have a classic Mustang body languishing in your shop? Maybe something with some unique history (a Shelby, a race car with heritage, etc.) that is simply beyond financial repair? It could earn a second life as a REC P-51 Mustang watch with its own unique story.
We know a lot of people with “I’m going to restore it someday” stories. Why not reincarnate that ragged old Mustang in the name of a lost loved one.
Once REC Watches has purchased your Mustang they’ll instruct you on what pieces they need cut from the car to make the P-51 Mustang watch, and you get to keep the rest of the Mustang to sell any other usable parts off of too!
