King Of The Quarter Mile, Refashioned To Your Wrist

REC Watches has debuted a motorcycle-themed watch collection for the moto-minded wrist – and one of the tickers has parts from a 2013 Triumph Speedmaster

Let’s get into it. 

Attention to detail is the name of the game for this collection; when we covered the first limited-edition unit (a neat timepiece sporting part of Steve Mcqueen’s Iconic Triumph R6 Trophy and christened the ‘TTT Great Escape’), we dug the fact that they used the clutch plates and connecting rods of McQueen’s beauty as an integral part of the watch’s face, bringing a clever element of sentimentality to the turn of the hour.

It matches this second unit in the collection beautifully. 

Dubbed the ‘TTT ICON1000,’ WatchPro tells us that this watch is nothing short of a tribute to the quarter mile, with parts and inspiration taken from the 2013 Triumph ‘Speedmaster’ – a staple bike on the drag racing scene, with the machine built by ICON1000 Motosports and Triumph North America (hence the name).

For the TTT ICON1000, the report tells us that the stator cover is now the dial of the ticker, with “the patina of the recycled material meaning that no two individual watches will ever look identical.”

Other features of this neat gadget includes a dual inner/outer case construction allowing the rider/Triumph fan/moto-inspired-sapien to switch between RIDE and DRESS mode with a neat twist of the dial.

RIDE mode will purportedly put the 12 o’clock marker at a 30-degree shift “to center it in the rider’s field of vision,” and the dial’s black-and-cream color scheme, along with the hands and straps, and the “Go Fast, Look Flash” motto etched on the inner case all point in design reference to the Speedmaster.

Here’s a further list of the TTT ICON1000’s specs:

“Every single REC timepiece incorporates salvaged, recycled iconic parts – a concept it calls ‘Recover, Recycle, Reclaim,’ or ‘REC’ for short,” finishes the report.
