Watches made from old Mini wrecks

Hi everybody

Have you guys seen these brilliant Mini inspired watches made from old Mini wrecks ? The metal dials used in the watches is taken from old Mini wrecks and then every timepiece is stamped with the VIN number from the recycled car used! The timepieces are made by a company called REC Watches.
Please let me know what you guys think of the idea and concept ?

Very nice! But without you explaining the source of the materials, i wouldn't have known they had anything to do with MINI or Mini just from looking at them.
