Introducing The Baume & Mercier Clifton Day-Date Moon-Phase

Brisk Take

Baume & Mercier is busy once more. Their new Clifton Day-Date Moon-Phase matches complication, construct quality, and reasonableness. Made from strong squares of steel or pink gold, this new Baumatic-prepared watch includes an unmistakable case plan in addition to a moon stage, day-date complication, and sizable five-day power save, making it a genuinely compelling contribution overall. 

Beginning Thoughts

Complicated watches are the same old thing for Baume & Mercier, however complications combined with their Baumatic in-house developments are surely very new. Consider this new contribution something of a more congenial variant of a year ago’s Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar , however holding back on nothing in standing of development innovation. The Baumatic development inside the watch flaunts a silicon hairspring, superior escapement and, as noticed, a five-day power save. Fortunately, there is an open caseback for your survey delight complete with an overlaid open-worked swaying weight embellished with “Côtes de Genève.” Whereas the interminable schedule was offered uniquely in gold, this model will be offered in both a strong pink gold and tempered steel variation, making it ever the more receptive in cost. Regardless material, the watch will have the smokey slope dark lacquered dial with prolonged trapezoidal indexes.

I need to say that Baume & Mercier shock me each time they discharge a complicated watch since they are genuinely ready to focus on adjusted dial plan. For this situation, the close balance welcomed on by the two lines of text at nine and three o’clock individually is very great. Add the vertical setup of the complications, and you have yourself a strong attractive dial. I’m additionally somewhat struck at how, while obviously a dressier contribution, this watch actually figures out how to radiate a little hint of game watch DNA. Possibly it’s the Arabic numerals for the seconds, or perhaps it’s simply me. In any case, I think Baume & Mercier has nailed the combination of class and cost once more with this new Baumatic expansion to the Clifton line.
