Honoring a Legend

The legend of Burt Munro began in 1920 when he purchased a very early model Indian Scout motorcycle which at the time of its purchase had a top speed of 55 mph. Driven by a passion for speed and pushing boundaries, he heavily modified the motorcycle to travel faster and faster. Through over 40 years of hard work and innovation, Munro more than tripled the original top speed. As a 68-year old grandfather, Munro brought it to the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1967 and set the American Motorcycle Association speed record of 184.087 mph, a record that still stands today.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this milestone, Baume & Mercier teamed up with Indian Motorcycles to create a limited edition timepiece featuring a number of special details—the Clifton Club Indian Burt Munro Tribute. The dial is sandblasted silver to mimic the surface of the Bonneville Salt Flats and highlights the number 35 in a yellow circle, which was Munro’s lucky number. An Indian Motorcycles logo is engraved on the 44mm case back and the center chronograph hand features the Indian “I” logo. As a finishing touch, the deep vermillion calf strap is “Indian Red” like Munro’s motorcycle.

Burt Munro’s legacy has moved beyond motorcycles and now symbolizes the human drive to push beyond what is perceived to be impossible. The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Indian Burt Munro Tribute is limited to 1967 pieces, paying homage to the year this inspirational man made his record-setting run.

The AMVOX2 Transponder

Aston Martin WatchAs a producer of some of the world’s most complicated sports watches, Jaeger LeCoultre is continually innovating to create things we’ve never seen before. It’s this dedication to innovation which brings us the AMVOX2 Transponder, the first mechanical watch to control the locking mechanism on a luxury car.

Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX2 Transponder Aston Martin
Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX2 Transponder Movement

A unique feature, the AMVOX2 is capable of locking and unlocking the doors on your Aston Martin! This feature is cool and unique, but how it communicates with the car is truly genius. Instead of utilizing pushers on the side of the case to execute the function, Jaeger LeCoultre designed the sapphire crystal on the AMOX2 Transponder to act as a button. Simply pressing on the crystal will lock/unlock the vehicle, and this is also how you operate the chronograph. This creation required an incredible amount of technical collaboration, including over 18 months of dedicated research at Jaeger LeCoultre.

If that alone doesn’t appeal to you, the AMVOX2 Transponder’s aesthetics surely will. The watch is styled with a 44mm titanium case, black satin dial and a calfskin leather strap. Its bold numerals, chronograph and date indicators, along with the red second hand, make this sports watch technical yet sleek and modern. The AMVOX2 Transponder is sure to be a big hit with sports car enthusiasts and watch connoisseurs alike.
