Baume & Mercier Clifton Small Complications: useful functions and timeless design
As part of the Clifton collection, Baume & Mercier reveals three new watches with emblematic functions and elegant designs. Models include new Small Complications integrated on the matte white dials: the Complete Calendar, the Retrograde Date and the Power Reserve. Each of the three Clifton Small Complication models contains a self-winding movement within a 43mm polished and satin-finished steel case of which the streamlined horns offer optimal comfort in wear.
Baume & Mercier Clifton – The Complete Calendar
Inspired by “vintage” designs, the first model features a complete, clear andeasy-to-read calendar. Two apertures display the day and month, while a blued hand indicates the date. The moon phase elegantly completes the white dial.
Baume & Mercier Clifton – Power Reserve, Retrograde Day and Date
The dial of the second and most contemporary design features additional hands that indicate the day within a display aperture, the retrograde date along a wide arc, and the power reserve at 6 o’clock.
Baume & Mercier Clifton – Open Balance Wheel and Power Reserve
The final Small Complication model also features a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. On this model, Baume & Mercier decided to unveil part of the movement by skeletonizing the dial at 12 o’clock. Fine watch aficionados will enjoy observing the oscillations of the balance wheel and the beat of the escapement anchor through the opening in the dial.
Each piece is carefully finished and completed by a sapphire glass back, revealing the movement, and is mounted on an intense blue alligator strap that fastens with a secure triple folding buckle.
