The Cooper C1
The Cooper Collection is made from salvaged classic Minis.
Every single timepiece is visibly unique, with a see-through case back showcasing the handcrafted metal dial made from a recycled Austin Mini.
The Cooper dial is inspired by the characteristic bonnet stripes of the classic Mini Cooper S. The stripes are attributed to the legendary race driver John Cooper (1923-2000), whose official racing colors were a British racing green backdrop with white stripes. Still very popular on both classic and modern Mini Cooper cars, the two stripes are subtly incorporated in the dial as a design reference to the car from which it was partly made.
