We are proud to showcase our Brand of the Month, Baume & Mercier, and their striking selection of Clifton Club Indian timepieces.
The Clifton Club collection has quickly become known for its rugged yet stylish sports watches. In partnership with America’s first motorcycle company, Indian Motorcycle, Baume & Mercier pays tribute to American motorsports with three unique timepieces within the Clifton Club collection.
Indian® Burt Munro Tribute
Baume & Mercier’s Indian® Burt Munro Tribute honors a legendary motorcyclist who set an under 1000cc record speed at 68 years old after spending decades modifying his bike himself. The timepiece features a yellow number 35, Burt Munro’s lucky number, and a second hand shaped in the Indian “I.” Limited to 1967 pieces, remembering the year that Munro set his iconic record, this 44mm self-winding chronograph is the perfect way to pay homage to a man who is a central part of not only Indian’s culture but the history of motorsports as a whole.
Indian® Legend Tribute Chief®
Named after a popular Indian motorcycle, the 44mm self-winding Indian Legend Tribute Chief® timepiece features a stainless steel bracelet and a caseback engraved with the Indian Motorcycle logo. A subtle nod to Indian’s history and the year they were founded, on the 19th of each month, the date display reads “1901” instead of 19. A true limited edition, only 1901 of these pieces were released. This bold timepiece truly embodies the spirit of Indian Motorcycle.
Indian® Legend Tribute Scout®
Featuring a leather strap in the color of the Scout’s seat, one of the most visionary bikes in the world, Baume & Mercier’s Indian® Legend Tribute Scout® is a 1901-piece limited edition release. The timepiece boasts similar design characteristics as the Indian® Legend Tribute Chief® such as the 1901 date display on the 19th day of each month and the engraved caseback. The open-worked slate and black dial is racing-inspired and gives the watch its unique look.
