This watch is made from the brake pads of the Peugeot 9x8 Prototype

That's amazing

Right, I'll admit it: I'd never heard of Lorige before. It's a watch brand and as soon as I looked into it, I immediately I was in love. Their latest model, the BL-Endurance, is made from used car brakes and, rather fittingly, the company has just signed a partnership deal with Peugeot Sport.

This particular piece is made from the brake pads of the Peugeot 9X8 prototype with DLC-coated titanium parts, including the bezel and the screws. The 'engine' inside the 51.6 mm case is a Swiss Jura-made LOR-PR01, a manual-winding, 37-jewel, 294-component movement with a 45-hour power reserve.

Production is limited to 24 pieces, each with a hefty € 29,200 price tag excluding taxes. Ouch.

What's gonna happen to my content after February 1st? I'll keep writing about cars and watches on Flabbergasted, cryptocurrencies on bitcoinea and Publish0x. I also have five instagram accounts: personal, cars, watches, drinks news and crypto; as well as two (semi-active) YouTube channels (personal and cars). Thank you for your support on Drivetribe/Foodtribe, and thank you in advance should you choose to read my content elsewhere in the future.

  • Manual gearshifts, yes. Manual wind watches, no!

  • It must be a really special piece if they measure the power reserve in meters!

  • I am getting a bit tired of the whole “watches made from the rusty bits of some kind of vehicle “ kind of thing.

    It is getting a bit silly.
