So the team over REC has crafted this very interesting Back To The Future watch design from reclaimed parts of a DeLorean.
I have a number of REC watches and they are always very cool, very well made and very fun...thinking of possibly getting this one to add to the collection.
What do you think? Good idea?
Here is the marketing blah-blah...
The SPX DeLorean is a limited edition timepiece made from John Z. DeLorean’s personal DMC-12 company car.
Gullwing doors, unique windows, stainless steel panels and hard edges – the distinctive characteristics of an automotive icon that stole the spotlight – The DeLorean DMC-12.
A ‘time machine’ to the ‘80s, this exclusive vehicle was manufactured by the DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) in Northern Ireland, but less than 9,000 cars were made before the company filed for bankruptcy.
The DMC-12 is the canvas to a blockbuster tale that encompassed stunning design, big-screen features, a tragic downfall and a lasting fanbase – a folklore that reached car afficionados universally.
As a car that took you ‘Back to the Future,’ we captured its timeless design, unique aesthetic and the controversial automotive narrative that surrounded it and packaged it into our limited-edition SPX DeLorean.
Limited to 456 pieces and encased within a steel framework, the SPX is a spotlight watch for a spotlight car, with subtle design references weaving throughout the timepiece to evoke the iconic feel of the DeLorean.
> Launching for pre-order Dec 1st 2022, delivery from Mar 2023
> Limited to 456 pieces, each individually numbered.
> Danish Design. Swiss Made.

I really like chronographs especially vintage ones.
