There are only three days until our competition for Australian watch lovers to win a Royal Enfield Stealth Black Time+Tide Special Edition closes. Entering is as easy as going here, letting us know what the last watch you bought was, filling in your details and joining our mailing list for all of those subscriber-only good-times. International readers win too, with free access to our Buying Guide, which until now has been print-only.
We’re giving away a bike because, well, it’s a beautiful object. Either as the ultimate man cave decoration, or your weekend escape machine, it speaks to many of the design and build cues of the watches we love – it hails from a classic era of the motorcycle, it is made by a legendary marque in the motorcycle world, and there are lots of vintage-inspired touches that elevate it from a simple A to B vehicle. It was conceived in collaboration with the legends at Mid Life Cycles, in Cremorne, Melbourne.
Royal Enfield’s Classic 500 matches the timeless look of the ’50s-style motorcycle with modern features for both safety and reliability, including electric start, ABS brakes, fuel injection and electronic ignition. The Time+Tide Stealth Black Special Edition adopts the Bobber style first popular in the 1950s among California hot rodders and motorcycle custom builders.
The Bobber is now a recognised custom style among the Café Racers, Scramblers, Trackers and other custom-built bikes. The Time+Tide Stealth Black Special Edition has been customised by Australian Royal Enfield dealer Mid Life Cycles and features a leather solo saddle, MotoWings Performance exhaust and custom bar-end mirrors to complement the low, retro style of the timeless Royal Enfield Classic 500.
Royal Enfield Stealth Black Time+Tide Special Edition Specifications:
500cc four-stroke single cylinder classic-styled motorcycle, LAMS (Learner or Restricted Licence Approved), electric and kick start, chain drive with five-speed gearbox, disc brakes front and rear fitted with ABS (anti-lock braking system), plus electronic fuel injection and digital electronic ignition.
