When your friends ask you about your nice watch, there’s usually not much you can say: the make, the model and the store you bought it from.
But imagine how interesting the conversation would be if your watch was made out of actual car parts.
Christian Mygh from REC Watches has created the P-51: a mechanical watch made out of classic Mustangs parts.
But @recwatches don’t only sell you a watch that replicates the Mustang’s looks.
They also show you the actual car your watch is made of: its story, its previous owners, the roads it used to roam on and its journey to you.
More than 400 people liked this idea and turned Christian’s project into a crowdfunding success.
