Cashed-up Australian fans of Indian Motorcycle can express their love for the brand with a range of three tribute watches valued at around $5500 from Swiss watch maker Baume & Mercier.

The Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute, Clifton Club Scout and the Clifton Club Chief watches will be available to buy at a special launch event at the Indian Motorcycle dealership in Melbourne on 5 September 2018 and afterwards at Hardy Brothers jewellers.

The watch featured at the top of this page pays tribute to Kiwi Burt Munro whose record-breaking efforts on a 1920 Scout were immortalised in the 2005 film, The World’s Fastest Indian.

Burt’s great nephew Lee Munro will be at the launch. Lee is currently at Bonneville Speed Week attempting to crack 200mph (321.8km/h) on a modified Indian Scout.
