Indian Motorcycles have teamed up once again with watchmaker Baume & Mercier to produce two more limited edition watches following last year’s release of the exclusive Burt Munro watch by the same company.
The new watch models, dubbed the Clifton Club Scout and Clifton Club Chief are set to go on sale worldwide, but with each in limited numbers of 1,901 – a nod to the year Indian Motorcycles was founded.
The Club Scout model takes its inspiration from the Indian Scout while the Club Chief takes its from the Indian Chief.
Alexandre Peraldi, Baume & Mercier’s Design Director worked closely with Indian’s Industrial Design (ID) team based in Minnesota, USA to create these two new timepieces. The aim was to capture the DNA of Indian in a refined and not obvious manner.
Steve Menneto, Polaris Industries’ President of Motorcycles, said: “Storytelling has been a big part of Indian since its founding in 1901. What Hendee and Hedstrom did in moving out of pedal bikes into motorised bikes is an incredible story. Today we continue to tell that story and ones about famous riders who have owned an Indian Motorcycle over the past 116 years. I truly believe our heritage and the tales of what motorcyclists achieved in the past is helping Indian gain momentum and a new following of riders who want to live and create stories for themselves.”
If you’ve got that much cash to drop on a watch, you’ll need to find get hold of a Baume & Mercier stockist to put your deposit down for one of the limited edition watches as the watches are not available from Indian Motorcycle dealerships.
