Bridge Classic Cars Competitions is giving one lucky winner the chance to win an air-cooled Porsche! But, it’s been made into a watch…

REC has launched the 901. A beautiful timepiece inspired by the early Porsche 911 (901) so much so that part of it is actually made from the metal of salvaged Porsche 911.

901 is the reference to the early cars created by Porsche before the dispute with Peugeot over the use of the 901 name. After this, Porsche changed the new cars name to 911. The REC 901’s dials are a reference to the early dials that lay in the minimal and iconic dashboard of the early Porsches. Much like the 911, the 901 watch is a stunning piece of engineering, style and precision that can be worn every day and also like the car, is for all occasions.

On the back of the watch, as a cover for the internals, is a Fuchs alloy. The iconic daisy style wheel that was used on air-cooled Porsche road and race cars all the way to the present day. A lovely little touch to further connect it to the car that gave up its metal to create this stunning timepiece.

Along with this watch, is a stunning print from The Automobilist featuring a fiery orange coloured 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7RS. One of the most iconic Porsche road and race cars of all time along with being the genesis of the Porsche GT programme.

It is available now to win! With only 911 tickets available at launch, enter now to make sure you don’t miss out on owning this piece of air-cooled Porsche memorabilia.
