Robert Craig Knievel (October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007) was the world renowned daredevil and showman. His most famous stunt was attempting to jump the fountains of Caesars Palace.
Later in his career Evel rode a Harley XR750, including for his last ever stunt – the Shark jump – practicing for which he crashed into a cameraman and he would sadly later retire as a result.
The TTT-Knievel design is inspired by Evel Knievel´s looks and showmanship as well as the DNA of his Harley machine, and will feature a black “Glitter” dial with a brushed steel case.
The star at 12 o’clock is made from material from his XR750 stunt bike, alongside the words ‘King of the Daredevils’, the central dial design a reference to his suit, while his number 1 Harley symbol is run at 6 o’clock. Additional details include Evel Knievel’s signature on the caseback, the rotor pattern also incorporates wheel-spoke like elements into the design.
