Created in 1973, the Riviera watch returns this year to revive the spirit of a distinguished watchmaking era. Here it is in 2021, still authentic: a poised sized steel case, a dodecagonal bezel equipped with four diamonds, a “Swiss Made" quartz movement, and a built-in interchangeable rubber strap. The original design is still there, but so is the desire to adapt to our times.
Some watches stand the test of time. The Riviera is one of those. When it was launched in 1973, Baume & Mercier chose to present a powerful, unique, different and distinctive watch. At a time when the watchmaking industry could afford to do almost anything, the Riviera broke with traditional codes.
-THE ICONIC TWELVE-SIDED BEZEL WITH FOUR SCREWS
Known for its twelve-sided bezel reflecting the twelve hours displayed on its dial, this unique watch left an impression. Here it is in 2021, still authentic: a generously sized steel case, a dodecagonal bezel equipped with four screws, “Swiss Made" self-winding and quartz movements, and built-in interchangeable straps in steel or supple materials.
A UNIQUE DECORATION ECHOING THE FRENCH RIVIERA
The Riviera features a unique decoration that symbolizes the convergence of the mountains and the ocean. Inspired by the carefree lifestyle of the French Riviera, this is the watch of casual elegance: a symbol of freedom and fun, taking an easygoing view of refined watchmaking.
