Baume Et Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar 18K Rose Gold Automatic (Blue Dial / 42mm)
Baume Et Mercier
42mm 18K rose gold case, blue dial, blue alligator strap.
Baume & Mercier pays tribute to its heritage and watchmaking expertise by reinterpreting a fascinating complication: the perpetual calendar. This watch automatically takes into account months of 30 or 31 days as well as leap years, depending on the length of the month of February. Therefore, it will not need to be corrected until 2100.
With its Clifton collection, Baume & Mercier is passionate about regularly revisiting this masterpiece of construction and miniaturization, making it one of its specialities for several years now. The Brand unveils a new version with a spellbinding deep blue dial that reflects an inexhaustible source of inspiration: the universe.
Its round case, 42mm in diameter and 12.1mm thick, is adorned with 18K polished and satin-finish rose gold. It is topped with a domed scratch-resistant anti-glare sapphire crystal that reveals remarkable craftsmanship: the gold beveled horns catch the light and emphasise the perimeter of the lacquered blue gradient dial, offering a spellbinding contrast. Elegant riveted gilt trapezoid-shaped indexes can be admired under the tips of the faceted gilt alpha-shaped hands that dance gracefully across its face. Three other fine gilt hands indicate the counters: At 9 o’clock, the days. At 12 o’clock, the months. At 3 o’clock, the date counter. At 6 o’clock, the most poetic complication, the moon phase, can be seen through a delicate polished black lacquered gilt moon disk.
This Swiss-made artistry composed of blue, gold, and black evokes the night, its twinkling stars, and its bright moon. The perpetual calendar contains the universe, which suddenly seems to fit on the wrist, thanks to the expertise and meticulousness of passionate watchmakers.
When this work of art is turned over to admire its beating heart, the wearer is immersed in the beauty of each tiny component and hypnotised by each delicate gear.
Housed here is a Baumatic base to which a Dubois-Dépraz 55202 module has been added.
Together, they bring the watch to life and achieve the performance so dear to Baume & Mercier, offering its owner accuracy combined with supreme comfort.
It features bridges with a circular-grained finish, a sand-blasted and snailed base-plate, a gold-plated oscillating weight that is open-worked with a Côtes de Genève decoration, and a unique Baume & Mercier engraving.
As an elegant touch, the Clifton perpetual calendar is mounted on a black alligator strap with square scales featuring tone-on-tone stitching on the top and blue stitching on the inside, with bar tacks at the rose gold pin buckle. The strap features a curved spring-bar system that makes it possible to change it without using any tools. A poetic and delicate masterwork, this Clifton watch will appeal to the most sensitive and passionate fine watchmaking aficionados.
