When it comes to limited edition watches, there are few better out there than Danish watchmakers, REC, and for those with a love of automotive inspired timepieces, look no further than their latest offering – these breathtaking Limited Edition 901 RWB Watches. Available in two different styles and extremely limited in nature, with just 305 pieces for each being made available, you’ll need to move quickly to get one of these glorious looking timepieces on your wrist this summer.
The REC Limited Edition 901 RWB Watch has a price tag of £1469 which, considering the calibre of craftsmanship, unique nature and eye-catching style of these watches, represents excellent value for money in our opinion here at Coolector HQ. Billed as REC’s most extreme collection yet, these fantastic timepieces have been designed and produced in collaboration with legendary Japanese car tuner Akira Nakai, founder of Porsche tuning company RAUH-Welt BEGRIFF (RWB).
The REC X RWB collaboration boasts a unique design which contains a piece of metal from the original RWB Stella Artois and RWB Rotana Porsche -which it the personal and famous race cars of Mr Akira Nakai. With just 305 pieces of each model being made available, these are already flying of the shelves so make sure you don’t miss out.
Available in two different iterations, the 901 RWB Stella (£1469) has a piece of metal from Akira Nakai-San’s personal RWB Porsche 911: Stella Artois – a car which was over a decade in the making and the genesis of all RWB projects. Stella Artois was Nakai-san’s first full conversion: it is a classic black 1985 Porsche 930 turned into a roaring monster. The giant rear wing and the weight-reducing carbon fibre custom wide bodywork are offset by its name written in loud golden letters on the side – a homage to the Belgian beer and Nakai-san’s brew of choice.
The second offering in this new limited edition from REC is the 901 RWB Rotana (£1469) which uses metal from Akira Nakai’s personal RWB Porsche 911: Rotana – which is an absolutely outrageous, bordering on the blasphemous, purple turbo car. The purple Rotana is Nakai-san’s vision taken to a whole new level. The idea for this evolutionary refinement on his first project suddenly came to fruition in his mind during a visit to the United Arab Emirates; when a purple Lamborghini blasted past him as he was walking next to buildings owned by the Rotana group. This is what served as the inspiration for this visually vibrant timepiece from REC Watches.
