Your Ultimate Adventure Partner: The RNR Beach Runner

The RNR (Road Not Required) 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).

The REC Watches RNR Collection is the brand's first Swiss-made timepieces.

With an uncompromising approach to life, Daniel spends most of his days on the beaches of Peniche, Portugal, in his constant quest for that one, perfect wave - shooting images along the way. The RNR Beachrunner is a testament to the laid-back lifestyle of owning a classic Land Rover.

REC Watches soon found out Daniel's beloved Land Rover needed a new roof. The constant salty winds and the salt water dripping from his surfboards had slowly but surely eaten away vital parts of his roof. What had once been the metallic blanket for Daniel on his countless adventures and nights became the dial of a new and complex piece of machinery - the face of the new RNR Beachrunner timepiece. 

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. 

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.
