REC Watches has partnered with world champion drift racer Vaughn Gittin Jr. on a special edition timepiece. The P-51 RTR watch pays tribute to the original ’60s Ford Mustang and Gittin’s own drift monster Mustang RTR.
Elements from Gittin’s Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR have been incorporated into the watch’s design elements. Most notably, the dial and bezel are made from forged aluminum/carbon fiber recycled directly from the car.
Additional details include a sapphire-crystal anti-reflective coating, a leather watch strap stitched with Gittin’s racing number, 25, in Roman numerals, and references to the car’s wheel covers, vent lights, and three-split tail lights on the sides and back.
As the watch is inspired by the one-of-a-kind car, REC has limited the release to 350 pieces priced at $1,895 each. For those interested in buying, Gittin Jr.’s P-51 RTR watch is available to pre-order now. Catch one before it drifts away.
