NEW ERA

Baume & Mercier marks another tri­umphant mo­ment with its first pro­pri­etary me­chan­i­cal move­ment

Prestige Hong Kong - - SIHH -

NO STRANGER TO pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent value, Baume & Mercier is ded­i­cated to cre­at­ing at­trac­tively de­signed watches en­hanced with re­li­able Swiss tech­nol­ogy and at a rea­son­able price to boot. And the new Clifton Bau­matic, which is pow­ered by the com­pany’s first pro­pri­etary move­ment, is not only a tes­ta­ment to that wor­thy ob­jec­tive, but also a sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment.

Its new Bau­matic BM12-1975A au­to­matic cal­i­bre, which is vis­i­ble through the case back, was cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with ValFleurier and the Richemont R&D team. It fea­tures a sil­i­con es­cape­ment (a first for a Richemont brand) and of­fers a gen­er­ous five-day power re­serve that’s gen­er­ated by a sin­gle bar­rel. Other ground-break­ing el­e­ments in­clude the op­ti­mised al­loy used for the bar­rel, an es­cape­ment with Pow­er­scape tech­nol­ogy and a Twin­spir sil­i­con hair­spring, all of which help en­sure the COSC­s­tan­dard daily av­er­age de­vi­a­tion of -4/+6 sec­onds.

Vis­ually, the Clifton Bau­matic is sim­ple, el­e­gant and vin­tage-in­spired, with a stain­less-steel case and a porce­lain-white dial. Sweep­ing along the dis­creet minute mark­ers is a tra­di­tional three­hand lay­out, with a date aper­ture at 3 o’clock.

The Clifton Bau­matic is avail­able in four clas­sic de­signs or as a COSC-cer­ti­fied chronome­ter with a crosshair mo­tif on the dial.
