REC Watches are a visual representation of automotive history, design and spirit, wrapped into distinct silhouettes and packaged in a way that uniquely integrates (literally) automotive style into a wrist watch. The latest to come out from REC Watches are two timepieces dubbed the TTT Escape and the TTT Icon1000, drawing inspiration from a pair of historical Triumph motorcycles. Between the amusing display dial, fun case construction and multiple Triumph motorcycle design cues, there’s a lot to unpack.
The TTT Escape and TTT Icon1000 feature a 4-piece dual case system consisting of an exterior case equipped with a special function (more on that in a minute) and a separate interior case which houses the automatic movement. Each of the two are built in stainless steel with a vertically brushed side profile, number plate on the nine o’clock side and wired lugs curving away from the case. The fixed bezel comes polished with a sandblasted etching surround that distinguishes the cardinal hours and adds the initial layer of depth to the watch. Differentiating the two, the TTT Icon1000 comes with a blackened steel fixed bezel, while the TTT Escape maintains the traditional stainless steel look throughout the entire case. Both are identical in case proportion, coming in at 43mm wide, 46.5 lug to lug and 12.3mm tall.
