Indian Motorcycle Australia are thrilled to announce the launch of the limited-edition Baume & Mercier and Indian Motorcycle collaboration watch range in Australia. The collaboration sees the production of three Indian Motorcycle inspired watches, The Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute, Clifton Club Scout and the Clifton Club Chief, highlighting key models in Indian Motorcycle’s range and milestones in Indian Motorcycle’s history.
New Zealand native Burt Munro made motorcycle history in 1967 when he set a new official land speed record of 184.087 mph on his heavily modified 1920 Indian Scout Streamliner at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA. Burt’s record remains unbeaten.
Burt’s great-nephew Lee Munro continues to honour his legacy on a specially developed Indian Scout based streamliner, the Spirit of Munro. Alongside the Indian Motorcycle engineering team, Lee is attempting to break into the 200-mph club at the 2018 Bonneville Speed Week in August. His previous attempts saw him hit 191.286mph at last year’s event.
To celebrate the extraordinary history of Burt Munro, his family and Indian Motorcycle, Indian Motorcycle Australia and Baume & Mercier will be giving away 1 x Clifton Club Indian Burt Munro Tribute watch valued at $5,500 and limited to just 1,967 worldwide. Plus, a return trip for x 1 to the launch party in Melbourne to accept the prize. The competition is being run through Facebook from 2nd – 22nd August 2018 and requires entrants to submit a creative photo of themselves with an Indian Motorcycle or product. The winner will be judged by Indian Motorcycle at 5pm August 22nd, 2018.
In partnership with Baume & Mercier and Hardy Brothers, the Australian launch of the Baume & Mercier and Indian Motorcycle collaboration watch range will take place amongst the latest range of Indian Motorcycles at Indian Motorcycle’s Melbourne dealership on Wednesday 5th September. As well as featuring the new range of watches on display, special guest Lee Munro (great nephew of Burt Munro) will be attending and discussing his latest record attempts at the 70th annual Bonneville Speed Week.
