Watches & Wonders - Clifton Baumatic Novelties
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – March, 25th 2020
The art of the complication
Three unprecedented timepieces join the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic collection. The Baumatic BM14 in-house calibre embodies the full expertise and enthusiasm that has driven Baume & Mercier to create new models.
The bridges feature a beaded finish, while the baseplate is sand-blasted and snailed. The bi-directionally wound oscillating mass is visible through a sapphire caseback, openworked and decorated with traditional Côtes de Genève designs.
These new pieces reinforce the traditional watch character of this elegant, timeless collection.
A new aesthetic exceptionally crafted in a solid block of rose gold
An extraordinary timepiece joins the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic collection. A new small complication with a unique look in addition to day-date and moon-phase.
The Baumatic BM14 in-house calibre embodies the full expertise and enthusiasm that has driven Baume & Mercier to create a new model. It now features a beautiful complication that reinforces the traditional watch expertise with a reliable, exclusive mechanism. This self-winding movement features a 5-day power reserve.
In addition to functional considerations, there is an omnipresent pursuit of balance in the proportions and of harmony in the choice of materials and colours.
The round 42 mm rose gold case with satin-polished double-bevelled edges emphasizes the gradated lacquered grey dial. The dial reveals the moon-phase against a starry sky background accentuated by the smoky grey sapphire crystal. It is adorned by riveted trapezoid-shaped hour markers and elegant golden alpha-shaped hands. A domed sapphire crystal with a glare resistant coating offers excellent readability.
As an ultimate touch of elegance, the piece is mounted on an interchangeable blue alligator strap with Bordeaux overstitching along the lining and bar tacking at the buckle. A fun yet reliable way to vary the look of the watch on a whim is made possible by a system of small curved bars with lugs requiring no tools.
A new Clifton that embodies the elegance and expresses the expertise of the Baume & Mercier House, specially designed for the connoisseur of beautiful watches.
Clifton Baumatic moon-phase, date
A complication that brings out the beauty of the moon cycle.
The 42 mm satin-polished stainless steel case, mounted on your choice of an interchangeable blue alligator strap or a satin-polished five-row steel bracelet, showcases a white porcelain-finish dial with riveted trapezoid-shaped hour markers and fine faceted alpha-shaped hands. Driven by the Baumatic BM14 self-winding in-house calibre offering a 5-day power reserve, this piece not only displays the central hour, minute and seconds, but also the moon-phase against a starry sky background, surrounded by pointer date display; both are located at 6 o'clock.
COSC-certified Clifton Baumatic date
A timeless classic available in three versions: steel, two-tone (steel and steel topped with gold), 18K rose gold.
The 39 mm or 40 mm steel case, mounted on your choice of an alligator or steel bracelet, showcases a dial with riveted trapezoid-shaped hour markers and fine faceted alpha-shaped hands. Available in gradated grey lacquer or with a warm white porcelain finish, it displays the
hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the date in an enlarged display at 3 o'clock. There are also crosshairs across the centre, a symbol of precision. The timepiece is driven by the self-winding Baumatic BM13 in-house calibre, which offers a 5-day power reserve, and is a chronometer certified by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute).
Clifton Baumatic is the Baume & Mercier collection dedicated to finest watch-making expressing elegance and refinement.
