Description

The TTT Knievel is a limited edition timepiece made from Evel Knievels iconic last stuntbike, the “Shark Jump” Harley-Davidson XR750.

Evel Knievel, born Robert Craig Knievel, mesmerized audiences as an American motorcycle daredevil, renowned for his daring stunts. Even today, his name is synonymous with spectacular showmanship and a hint of madness, inspiring countless new riders.

The much-hyped Shark Jump, Evel Knievel’s last daredevil stunt, was set in the 70s shark craze. Despite a less risky setup, an unscheduled rehearsal led to Evel’s crash, marking the end of his daredevil career.

The TTT Knievel timepieces incorporate aluminum sourced from the clutch levers of the XR750 motorcycle used in the “Shark Jump” stunt.

“Anybody can jump a motorcycle. The trouble begins when you try to land it!”

– Evel Knievel

King of the Daredevils

Evel Knievel

 

Robert Craig Knievel, better known as Evel Knievel (1938 – 2007), mesmerized audiences with his death-defying motorcycle stunts. He sported his iconic star-spangled red, white, and blue jumpsuits during his decade-long career, completing over 175 jumps.

Dubbed “America’s Legendary Daredevil,” Knievel is enshrined in the Smithsonian Institution and was honored in the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999. He holds the Guinness World Record for lifetime broken bones (35), having fractured every major bone except his neck.

In 1967, Knievel gained international acclaim by jumping 15 cars on ABC’s “Wide World of Sports.” This inspired his daring leap over Caesars Palace’s fountains in Las Vegas, orchestrated through cunning ploys. Despite a harrowing crash during the landing on New Year’s Eve 1967, Knievel’s subsequent recovery propelled him to global fame.

Over the next decade, Evel Knievel thrilled audiences with daring feats like jumping 50 cars at the Los Angeles Coliseum (1973), attempting to soar over Idaho’s Snake River Canyon using a rocket-powered Sky-Cycle (1974), and leaping over 13 buses at London’s Wembley Stadium (1975).

Chicago Amphitheatre 1977

Evels final jump

 

At 38 years old, Knievel was approached by CBS for a new live event in January 1977, titled “Evel Knievel’s Death Defiers.”

The main act, “The Shark Jump,” aimed to leap over a large indoor saltwater pool filled with sharks, capitalizing on 70s shark paranoia from the movie ‘Jaws.’

Despite his fame, Knievel’s career was winding down. The Shark Jump, set to take place at the Chicago International Amphitheatre, was meant to be a less risky stunt, drawing on fears from the movie ‘Jaws’. However, during an unscheduled rehearsal, Knievel lost control upon landing, crashing into a cameraman and fracturing his collarbone and arm.

This incident marked the end of his daredevil career, and The Shark Jump became his final televised performance. REC Watches incorporated the original clutch levers from Knievel’s bike into the TTT Knievel timepieces.

Little Risk, Little Reward

Design & DNA

 

Our goal was to craft timepieces that encapsulate Evel Knievel’s remarkable life and daring feats. Here’s a concise overview of how the TTT Knievel watches came to be.

The focal point is the star-shaped marker at 12 o’clock, forged from recycled aluminum sourced from Evel Knievel’s XR750 Shark Bike handlebar levers. Each TTT Knievel watch boasts a distinct appearance, thanks to this unique material.

Due to the constraints of using original XR750 Shark Bike components, only 736 TTT Knievel timepieces will ever be crafted, ensuring exclusivity.

The skeletonized SW200-1Sb movement, with its black ruthenium plating and rotor reminiscent of motorcycle wheels, is showcased through the openworked dial and exhibition caseback. Inside the caseback crystal, Evel Knievel’s signature is printed in blue.

Drawing inspiration from the bike’s exhaust pipes, the wire lugs extend from the outer case and are seamlessly integrated into the frame, juxtaposing brushed and polished metal finishes. A serial number plaque is discreetly placed on the left side of the outer case.

Evel Knievel’s iconic red, white, and blue attire influences various design elements, such as embossed stripes on the double-calf leather strap’s inner lining.

  • EVEL KNIEVELS trademark signature has been printed on the inside of the caseback glass. The rotor is designed to mimic the spoked wheels of the XR750 stuntbike.
  • Use the crown to switch between
  • At center-stage, the star at the 12-o’clock dial marker is made from reforged aluminium from the clutch lever of Evel Knievels XR750 Shark Bike. Adding both visual and historical depth to each watch, the recycled material looks unique in every single TTT KNIEVEL timepiece.
  • Protruding from the outer case, the wire lugs are inspired by the bike’s exhaust pipes and integrated in the outer case frame, providing a striking contrast of metal finishings between the vertically brushed case and polished lugs

Dual-case construction

The Hidden Star

 

The TTT Knievel watch showcases a unique dual case design, enabling wearers to transition between Ride and Dress modes effortlessly using the crown or bezel.

In Ride mode, the dial rotates 30 degrees clockwise, aligning the 12 o’clock position for optimal viewing while holding motorcycle handlebars.

As a tribute to Evel Knievel’s flair, hidden engravings within the inner case system are revealed near the crown junction. In Ride mode, a shooting star is displayed, while in Dress mode, it reads “SHOW TIME.”
