The 1962 Triumph TR6 Trophy 650cc was used in the greatest motorcycle movie ever and was considered to be the most famous Triumph motorcycle in the world.
The bike was left to gather dust in a barn in Norfolk for over 40 years before being discovered by Dick Shepherd, owner of the world’s rarest private collection of Triumph motorcycles.
After contacting Bud Ekins (who was a stunt man in the movie) to confirm the bike’s authenticity, Shepherd set about restoring it to its former glory.
The restoration took about 3 months with a staggering 95% of the original parts preserved on the exhibition bike.
Shepherd replaced the clutch plates and connector rods to get the Triumph looking exactly as it does in the movie, passing the originals on to REC Watches for use in the TTT Escape dials.
The bike is now on permanent display at the Triumph Factory
Museum in Hinckley UK.
Our aim in creating the TTT Escape timepiece was to
establish a link between the design and functionality of this
Along with the TR6 components used in the dial, multiple
references to the bike’s design are also built into the TTT Escape. These include the dark-green color scheme used on the
dial, rotor and strap inner lining, and the bike’s license plate as
seen in the movie (WH-13371), which appears at 5 o’clock on
the inner dial.
Each TTT timepiece features a dual inner/outer case
construction that lets the wearer turn the entire dial to switch
between RIDE and DRESS mode. In RIDE mode, the 12 o’clock
marker is shifted 30 degrees clockwise to center it in the rider’s
field of vision.
The semi-openworked sandwich dial and exhibition case let you look straight through the balance wheel and beyond, echoing the “naked” design of the TR6’s engine.
The polished wire lugs, which protrude from the contrasting vertically-brushed outer case, closely resemble the bike’s exhaust pipes. Each watch is individually numbered on the left side of the case.
The skeletonized SW200-1 movement has been developed and customized in collaboration with Sellita, and features ruthenium plating and a custom rotor inspired by the spoked wheels, with a sunburst-finished oscillating weight.
