Indian has been doing a lot to keep the legacy of the World's Fastest Indian alive, with the land speed run of Burt's nephew Lee Munro and now this commemorative watch to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Salt Flats run. With the leather band holding that distinct Indian red and Munroe's number right on the face, this watch just oozes old school racing style. Here's what they had to say about the new watch:

It's been 50 years since Burt Munro took his Indian Scout Streamliner to the Bonneville Salt Flats and made history—a story immortalized by the feature film, The World's Fastest Indian, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. As a result, Munro's legacy transcends motorcycles and symbolizes the much broader drive to push beyond conventional limitations to experience or achieve what is seemingly impossible. Burt Munro is now a household name among "gear heads" across the globe and the ultimate example of the gritty, adrenaline-fueled pastime of expanding the limits of speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

In partnership with the Swiss watchmaker, Baume & Mercier, a limited edition watch has been created in celebration of the speed hero and brand’s collaboration. The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Indian Burt Munro Tribute was unveiled for the very first time at EICMA 2017 and is available online for pre-sale.

Recognizing the year Munro set his iconic land speed record, the watch will be limited to just 1,967 pieces. The limited-edition timepiece features a number of special details designed to commemorate the extraordinary achievement of Burt Munro, including:

  • Munro's lucky number 35 in the chronograph seconds counter
  • Calfskin strap in deep vermillion red identified with Indian Motorcycle as well as the color of the Munro's Scout Streamliner
  • Silver dial sandblasted to mimic the surface of the Bonneville Salt Flats
  • The counterbalance of the seconds hand features the Indian Motorcycle "I" script logo
  • The 44mm stainless steel case has a tachymeter scale on the bezel, which features Munro's record of 184 mph
  • On the back, the famous Indian Motorcycle headdress logo is engraved, as well as that watch's number within the 1,967 limited inventory
