Why my Mini is still seeing the doctor, I wan’t to write about something positive – my birthday present!
I got this really nice Mini watch, which is actually made out of an old Mini!
They buy old, rust Mini cars, tear them apart and use the metal parts to polish down to thin pieces of metal that becomes the watch dial.
As you can see, the watch design is heavily inspired by the old Minis – and it even has the VIN number of the car, that stood ‘father’ to my watch – stamped on the back of the watch.
The watch came with a nice little booklet with information on previous owners, copy of registration papers and a little history about the making of the watch.
I love this concept. Just wished I came up with that idea myself 🙂
If you’re interested in reading more about the watch and the concept, you can visit the company website (it’s Danish, yeah!) on www.recwatches.com.
