We saw the first result back in November with the Clifton Club Burt Munro LE. At SIHH, we got the latest update with two new chronographs: the Clifton Club Indian Legend Tribute Chief and Scout Limited Editions.
Named after two of Indian Motorcycle’s most popular models, the Chief and the Scout both come in at 44 mm and are powered by the reliable Valjoux 7750 movement. The Scout has a partially openworked black dial that differentiates itself from the Chief. These are masculine watches but you can tell a good bit of creativity went into their production.
On the 19th day of each month, the date disk displays “1901” as a reference to the first year of production for Indian Motorcycles. There are many design cues shared between the two watches. Riveted indexes that are coated in Super-LumiNova and speedometer-style subdials can be found across both models.
The biggest difference – other than the Scout’s partially openworked dial, meant to recall Indian’s midsize bike line – is the dial and strap. The Scout opts for a Horween Leather strap and opaline gray dial while the Chief has a black dial with red highlights and a stainless-steel strap secured with a triple-folding clasp. The Chief is priced at $3,900 and the Scout at $3,750.
