Used for its original intent, it's a complete mystery why the British icon doesn't come equipped with a kidney belt tucked 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.
THE ULTIMATE PARTNER OF ADVENTURE
The RNR Beachrunner is handcrafted from the roof of a 1981 Land Rover Series III - owned by Portuguese photographer and filmmaker, Daniel Espirito Santo and a close and personal companion to an artist living in the present (and for most of the time, in his car).
CRAFTING A SWISS MADE MASTERPIECE FROM A MAJESTIC BRITISH ICON
Every aspect of the RNR Beachrunner design reflects the function and aesthetic of the classic Land Rover Series III. 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
