Danish Company Makes Unique Watches From Old Mustang Parts

Products made from salvage material are in vogue right now. Furniture pieces made from reclaimed wood and home decorations fashioned out of disused junk are all the rage, occupying shelf space everywhere from your local antique shop to your nearest home improvement store.

Now, a Denmark-based company called REC Watches is manufacturing timepieces from parts off of classic Ford Mustang sports coupes. Starting at $1,495, each wristwatch is crafted lovingly from materials harvested from a junkyard Ford Mustang. The guys at REC research each and every car they make a batch of watches from, talking to previous owners and collecting images from the car’s history, incorporating all of it into a video that tells each Mustang’s individual story.

The year of production and VIN are incorporated into each design, as are various design cues from the Ford Mustang. The remaining battery life is displayed on a power gauge meant to resemble the Mustang’s fuel level indicator; the hands and dial numbers are influenced by the pony car’s analog gauges; and the date readout is made to look like the odometer in the iconic coupe.

If that’s not enough, REC Watches will also make you an entirely new watch using customer-supplied Mustang parts. Vaughn Gittin Jr. commissioned one that repurposes carbon-fiber bodywork from his old World Drift Series Mustang RTR.

“Most people would just see a pile of metal; a ghost of a Mustang,” says Christian Mygh, who founded the company with Jonathan Kamstrup. “We see something completely different – the soul of a car and a story that needs to be told. I’m not cutting up Mustangs. I’m bringing Mustangs that are beyond repair back to life as a watch.”
