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 a unique and highly limited series of watches.

THE HISTORY

The Legendary ‘Daytona’ Story

Buddy Elmore was an American motorcycle racer, who won the legendary Daytona 200-mile race on a ‘works special’ 500cc Triumph Tiger 100 in March 1966.

Pit against the larger engine 750cc Harley-Davidsons, the T100 was heavily tuned to keep up, with the recurring problem of engines blowing up in the unyielding Florida heat. As a result, Buddy never set a qualifying time, and was forced to start the race 46th on the grid, on a bike hastily assembled the night before the race.

Yet during the course of the race Buddy sped past the whole field to win by a full minute, achieving a staggering average speed of 96.582mph (156 km/h) in what is still arguably the most famous race in Daytona 200 history.

‘Win on Sunday – Sell on Monday’

Buddy’s victory was as dramatic as it was unexpected, ending nearly 30 years of US and Canadian performance bike domination, whilst beating the might of the Indian and Harley-Davidsons on their home turf.

The 1966 victory at Daytona thereby marked the beginning of the hey-day of Triumph racing bikes, and to commemorate Buddy’s achievement, Triumph aptly named the following performance bikes “Daytona” from 1967 onwards, the first being the T100R Daytona.

The Daytona name has now endured for more than half a century, with Buddy Elmore’s #79 bike as the genesis of its rich history. Today, only three 1966 Triumph ‘Daytonas’ are known to still exist, making Buddy’s T100 bike one of the most historically significant bikes in motorcycle racing history.

THE DNA

Repurposed with a purpose

Today, the 1966 Daytona 200-winning T100 race bike is on permanent display at the Triumph Factory Museum in Hinckley, representing the legacy of the now-iconic Daytona performance bikes. Yet, it wasn’t always so.

Long considered lost, the bike was eventually acquired by Dick Shepherd, owner of the world’s largest private collection of Triumph motorcycles. After confirming the bike’s authenticity, Shepherd set about restoring it to its former glory. The restoration took about five months to complete, with an impressive 95% of the original parts preserved on the exhibition bike.

Shepherd replaced the clutch plates and connecting rods to get the bike looking exactly as it did in 1966, passing the originals on to REC Watches, which in turn are reforged and incorporated as part of the TTT Elmore dials.

THE DESIGN

A fusion of history and design

The TTT Elmore is designed to establish a strong link to the history and design of the unique motorcycle.

While the repurposed Triumph T100 clutch plates are the centrepiece of the dial, multiple other subtle references to the bike’s history are incorporated across the watch design.

These include the metallic and black colour-scheme applied throughout the timepiece and the bike’s racing number #79 inversely frosted on the caseback glass. As a testament to Buddy’s upset 1966 victory, the recycled aluminium dial is engraved with his race time and staggering average speed.

Design references

The skeletonized construction allows a look straight through the customized Sellita SW200-1Sb caliber, featuring black ruthenium plating and a rotor inspired by the spoked bike wheels, complete with a sunburst oscillating weight.

Featuring a proprietary dual-case construction, the TTT Elmore gives you the option to switch between Ride and Dress wearing modes by twisting the inner case. In Ride mode, the dial is shifted a full 30-degrees clockwise, centring the 12 o’clock view position when gripping the handlebars of a motorcycle.

Extending from the vertically-brushed outer case, the polished wire lugs mimick the bike’s exhaust pipes, while the left side of the case reveals a small placque containing the serial no. of your watch.

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.
