Used for its original intent, it's a complete mystery why the British icon doesn't come equipped with a kidney belt tugged under its rugged seat and a pair of earplugs in the glove compartment.
The classic off-road capable Land Rover isn't the fastest or most comfortable ride. Nor is it the most quiet. You feel every pothole on the road, every rock crushed under its solid weight, while taking in the roar of an engine working in a way, modern cars will never understand.
CONQUERING THE STEEPEST MOUNTAINS AND THE DEEPEST CREEKS
The 2003 Land Rover Defender donor is owned by German gentleman, and owner of 4x4 Experience, Michael Ortner. He uses this specific car as a tool to climb the steepest mountains and cross the deepest creeks on his many adventure trips all over the Globe. This 2003 Defender has travelled to Sardinia, Corsica, Iceland and Morocco. Just to mention a few of the many countries it has seen.
The RNR Rockfighter is a tribute to the raw functionality of this legendary Defender.
CRAFTING A SWISS MADE MASTERPIECE FROM A MAJESTIC BRITISH ICON
Every aspect of the RNR design reflects the function and aesthetic of the classic Land Rover . Captivating the design DNA of the Land Rover has been no easy task and many years under development.
Capturing the iconic design trademarks of the Land Rover while designing a timepiece that can completely stand on its own was no easy task. The imposing and majestic form factor of the Land Rover has been boiled down to a 40mm timepiece that pays homage to the British icon.

Breaking up is never easy 😢
We have been fortunate enough to work with REC Watches since the very beginning but it is time to say goodbye to our Copenhagen friends.
We are down to our last few REC Watches and have made the decision to clear them out to make way for new exciting brands.
This means you can secure some of the last pieces in Oz below cost. Lucky you.
"Is REC closing down?"I hear you ask, not at all, REC will still be available directly from Copenhagen.
"What about my warranty?"Your 2 year international warranty will continue with REC Watches Copenhagen just like normal
