Coming back with style. Baume & Mercier go for the subtle chic route as we take a look at the timepiece used to help celebrate the watchmakers 185th anniversary. Not only resting on its vintage good looks this watch is composed together from deft mechanics as the aptly named Clifton 8 Day Power Reserve hosts a 8-day movement, from a single barrel!
Meticulous detail and minimalism is the mantra behind the design of this watch, which is apparent from the crystal dial featuring red gold Arabic numerals and the complications: date window at 3 o’clock, running seconds at 6 o’clock and the power reserve indicator at 8 o’clock. It is also a rather large timepiece as well, with the 18 karat red gold case having a diameter of 45mm and a sapphire caseback. To further put a stump of the occasion the watch is limited to only 185 pieces, with the number engraving found on the back of the case.
