Raw material from these legendary vehicles is punched into watch dials.
With customization at the forefront of RAUH-Welt Begriff, build specialist Arika Nakai transforms everyday Porsche 911 examples into aggressively widened conversions. The process of cutting directly into fenders and installing a molded wide body kit takes on an art form in itself, a meticulous craft that shares similarities with modern-day watchmaking. The automotive-inspired watch specialist at REC Watches is proud to continue its partnership with RAUH-Welt Begriff by highlighting the 901 RWB Rotana.
The REC 901 RWB Rotana is the newest limited-edition collaboration piece, achieving an appearance that mimics the styling of Nakai’s personal RWB Porsche 911. The 901 RWB Rotana features a 44mm case design made from 316L stainless steel, measuring at 46mm with the matte purple wide body kit. The complex dial design comes directly from the oil temperature/pressure gauge of the Porsche 911, which also displays the time, month, day, date, and power reserve functions. The most unique aspect of the dial is that raw materials from RWB builds are punched into each one, commemorating the extreme journey of alteration. While a turbocharged 6-cylinder drives Nakai’s car, the 901 RWB Rotana is powered by a Miyota cal. 900 mechanical self-winding movement, delivering an impressive 40-hour power reserve. The transparent backcase allows a closer look at the inner workings of the watch through a rotor designed as the same wheels on RWB Rotana. The outer portion of the backcase features numerical engravings that signify each of the 305-pieces in the limited series. REC fits the 901 RWB Rotana with a comfortable black rubber strap that proudly showcases the logo of RAUH-Welt Begriff. The REC 901 RWB Rotana watch is currently available through an authorized dealer for $1,795. Check back into duPont REGISTRY for more upcoming luxury watch news and releases.
