A watch symbol to celebrate Baume & Mercier’s 185 years of expertise
A 185-piece limited edition: Clifton 8-Day Power Reserve
Few brands have the distinction of a long history with classic designs that remain timeless for years to come. Since 1830, Baume & Mercier has been a part of this inner circle. This year, the brand is celebrating its 185th anniversary. To honor this celebration, only an exceptional timepiece embodying the mastery and heart of the brand will do: introducing the Clifton 8-Day Power Reserve.
Celebrate 185 years of expertise
Limited to 185 pieces, the Clifton’s sophisticated mechanism embodies 185 years of Swiss watchmaking. With a polished and satin-finished case and domed dial matching the sapphire crystal shape, this Clifton piece stays true to the brands roots. Its luxury qualities, traditional finishes, and exceptional performance seamlessly fall within the family of complex timepieces cultivated by Baume & Mercier. Similar to the Clifton 1830 launched in 2013 and Clifton Tourbillon 1892 unveiled in 2014, this elegant new edition embraces the heritage that has always been appreciated for its sense of balance.
Performance at the core
Baume & Mercier has chosen a mechanical manual-winding manufacture movement, with an eight-day power reserve, for this 45.5 mm 18K red gold piece. This manual movement enables the watch to run for over a week. At this level of perfection, every detail counts. To help each owner find the most appropriate time to wind the watch, Baume & Mercier placed a discreet power-reserve indicator on the dial, which shows the winding level.
The beautiful décor features a circular-grained finish on the plate and “Côtes de Genève” on the bridges. One of the bridges is engraved with the Greek letter, “Phi”, which is the logo of Baume & Mercier as well as the symbol of “Divine Proportion” and the golden ratio.
