Fake watches: The Swiss watchmaker launches a new sports chronograph that pays homage to motorcycle legend Burt Munro and his iconic Indian motorcycle.
Earlier this year, Baume & Mercier announced its partnership with Indian Motorcycle, often referred to as “America’s First Motorcycle Company.”
Of course, it’s not a new partnership without a new watch, and in this case it’s the Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute Limited Edition.
The new sports watch is as much about performance as it is about paying homage to motorcycle racing legend Burt Munro. But the history of this partnership goes a little further back than Burt.
From their beginnings in the industry, the two men behind Indian Motorcycle were obsessed with the pursuit of speed. In those early days, founders George Hendee and Oscar Hedstrom were considered daredevils. And it’s no surprise, since they basically strapped the motors to the bikes and raced and broke speed records. best replica watches
But for all of his accomplishments, it is the spirit of Burt Munro that has become part of the fabric of his brand.
Burt bought an Indian in 1926 that could only go 55 mph. After spending the next 40 years modifying the bike,
he took it to the famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, USA, and he set a class record speed of 184.087 mph (296.11 km/h).
Doing all of that as a 68-year-old grandfather made the record even more impressive. So it’s no wonder Burt said that, “You live longer for five minutes going fast on a motorcycle than other people do in their entire lives.”
The incredible story was immortalized in the 2006 movie called ‘The World’s Fastest Indian’, starring Anthony Hopkins. The 50th anniversary of the taking of the record, which incidentally still stands today, was also commemorated by Baume & Mercier. fake watches uk
The result is the Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute Limited Edition. A bit of a tongue twister when it comes to the name, but I guess that’s unavoidable when launching a tribute watch.
The limited edition automatic chronograph features a series of special details designed to commemorate Burt Munro’s extraordinary achievement.
What stands out the most is the large yellow number 35 on the chronograph seconds counter, Munro’s lucky number. The dial itself is silver with sandblasted and spiral finishes,
intended to mimic the surface of the Bonneville Salt Flats, where the record was set.
The “Indian Red” color of the calfskin strap evokes the deep vermilion color that is identified with the Indian Motorcycle Company. It is the defining feature of the Munro special edition, which is also found in the model’s recognizable central needle.
The 44mm stainless steel case has a tachymeter scale on the bezel, with the record, 184mph, highlighted on it. On the back, the famous Indian Motorcycle Company Indian Headdress logo is engraved, as well as the limited edition number. BAUME & MERCIER FAKE
The Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute is limited to 1967 pieces – based on the year Munro achieved his famous record. Created in 1973, the Riviera watch has once again revived the spirit of a distinguished watchmaking era. It still features the distinctive bezel and streamlined steel case. More than a renaissance, the new generation of this legendary watch strikes a chord of true renewal.
