REC Watches is a Danish company whose concept is to recycle parts from iconic vehicles that are beyond repair and transform them into brand new timepieces. Due to the variations of patina in the recycled dials, all of the watches are visibly unique, and each has its own story.
The idea behind REC Watches was to redefine how a timepiece can tell a (fantastic) story, and relate to you not as a customer, but as an individual.
REC Watches was founded in 2014 by two Danish entrepreneurs and childhood buddies, Christian Mygh and Jonathan Kampstrup. Watch fanatics to the bone, they wanted to create something different, unpretentious, and ultimately something they would simply crave themselves. Hence, instead of some obscure year of establishment or vague ‘inspiration’, every single REC timepiece is made by salvaging classic cars and icons and transforming them into watch components.
The result is distinctive designs with handmade premium components yet a modern twist encompassing the very soul of the recycled vehicles and a truly unique storytelling!
A concept named RECOVER, RECYCLE, RECLAIM - or just REC for short.
THORNICO invested in Rec Watches in 2015 through the popular TV show Løvens Hule also known as Dragons' Den and Shark Tank.
REC's philosophy is to salvage and recycle out-of-use iconic wrecks into modern timepieces. Each timepiece is visibly unique and has its own story to tell.
