Description

The TTT Elmore is a limited edition timepiece made from Buddy Elmore’s 1966 Daytona 200-winning T100 race bike.

One of the most famous wins in motorcycle racing history, the 1966 Florida Daytona 200 saw Buddy Elmore spectacularly race from 46th on the grid to first place, winning the race on a prototype T100 Tiger – a dramatic victory that gave Triumph performance bikes the ‘Daytona’ name.

The original clutch plates have been repurposed to form the unique and highly limited series of TTT Elmore timepieces.

The Legendary

‘Daytona’ story

 

Buddy Elmore, an American motorcycle racer, clinched victory at the iconic Daytona 200-mile race in March 1966 astride a ‘works special’ 500cc Triumph Tiger 100.

Despite competing against larger 750cc Harley-Davidsons, the highly tuned T100 struggled with engine failures due to the relentless Florida heat.

With no qualifying time, Buddy started the race in 46th position aboard a bike hastily assembled the night before.

Nevertheless, Buddy’s remarkable performance saw him swiftly surpass the entire field, ultimately securing victory by a full minute. He achieved an astounding average speed of 96.582mph (156 km/h), making this race arguably the most renowned in Daytona 200 history.

Buddy’s unexpected triumph marked a significant shift, ending nearly three decades of dominance by US and Canadian performance bikes, triumphing over the formidable Indian and Harley-Davidson rivals on their home turf.

The 1966 Daytona victory signaled the rise of Triumph racing bikes, inspiring Triumph to name subsequent performance models “Daytona” from 1967 onwards, starting with the T100R Daytona.

For over half a century, the Daytona name has persisted, with Buddy Elmore’s #79 bike serving as its origin. Today, only three 1966 Triumph ‘Daytonas’ are known to exist, elevating Buddy’s T100 bike to one of the most historically significant motorcycles in racing history.

Repurposed

Clutch plates

 

Today, the T100 race bike that won the 1966 Daytona 200 is a permanent fixture at the Triumph Factory Museum in Hinckley, symbolizing the enduring legacy of the Daytona performance line.

However, its journey to this status was far from straightforward.

Once believed lost, the bike eventually found its way to Dick Shepherd, renowned for owning the world’s largest private collection of Triumph motorcycles. After verifying its authenticity, Shepherd embarked on a meticulous restoration process to return it to its former glory. This endeavor spanned five months, during which 95% of the original parts were carefully preserved.

In restoring the bike, Shepherd replaced only the clutch plates and connecting rods, ensuring it mirrored its 1966 appearance. The original parts removed during restoration were passed on to REC Watches, where they were reforged and integrated into the TTT Elmore dials.

A fusion of

History & design

 

The TTT Elmore establishes a direct connection to the motorcycle’s legacy through various design elements. Repurposed Triumph T100 clutch plates form the dial’s centerpiece, complemented by subtle nods to the bike’s history.

The watch features a metallic and black color scheme, with the bike’s racing number #79 frosted on the caseback glass. Engraved on the recycled aluminum dial are Buddy’s 1966 race time and average speed, commemorating his remarkable victory. The skeletonized design showcases the customized Sellita SW200-1Sb caliber, featuring black ruthenium plating and a rotor inspired by motorcycle wheels.

With its proprietary dual-case construction, the TTT Elmore offers both Ride and Dress modes, adjustable by twisting the inner case. Polished wire lugs extend from the outer case, resembling exhaust pipes, while the left side displays a serial number plaque.

You can purchase this item in payment installments with Splitit - with no extra hidden costs. The installments will be spread over your chosen number of months and debited to your credit card.
Splitit installment payments at 0% interest: How does it work exactly?

Splitit allows you to split the total payment over a maximum of twelve months using your credit card. This service is free, involves no credit checks or applications, and means you can choose to split your payment into monthly installments.

To use this payment method all you need a credit card with a sufficient amount of available credit. Splitit authorizes the total order value—but don’t worry, this is not taken in full when you complete the purchase. At the time of shipping, only the first installment will be charged to your credit card. The remaining balance will be held on your credit card until the final payment has been made. However, a payment authorization for the outstanding amount of your purchase will be held during the full payment period.

After each monthly payment, the amount held from your available balance will be reduced to the new remaining balance (the held amount might appear as “pending”). To ensure that the authorization of your credit card is valid for the entire payment period, the authorization will be renewed every 21 days.

Are there any extra fees involved?

No, this is an interest-free payment method with no additional fixed fees, service fees, interest, or hidden fees of any kind.

Which credit cards does Splitit support?

You can pay using Splitit with a Mastercard or Visa card. Debit cards, American Express and pre-paid cards are not accepted.

Do I have to maintain the required available credit amount on my credit card?

Yes, you must maintain a sufficient amount on your credit card for both the monthly payment and for the full outstanding amount of your purchase during the full period of the plan. The authorized amount will be charged only in the event that a monthly payment is declined (the authorization hold might appear as “pending” on your credit card bill).

What happens if I return the product?

If you decide to not keep the ordered item(s), upon return of the items we will reimburse the installments that have already been paid and cancel the outstanding payments.

When and where can I choose the number of installments for my payment plan?

Installment payments with Splitit can be chosen as a payment option during the checkout process. Here, you can choose the number of installments in your payment plan and view the monthly payment amounts.
