Baume & Mercier celebrate its 185th anniversary this year. To mark the notable and special occasion, the brand is releasing a limited edition Clifton watch, the Baume & Mercier Clifton 8-Day Power Reserve.
Ever year, the brand’s Clifton and Capeland collections are bolstered with very competent and nice new pieces. New for this year and to mark the brand’s 185th anniversary is the Baume & Mercier Clifton 8-Day Power Reserve.
The watch comes in a 45mm wide red gold case and the overall aesthetic of it is very classic and clean. As befits an anniversary piece, the bezel and case is endowed with mirror and satin polishing. The sides of the case and lugs are satin-finished, whereas the top facing parts of the bezel and case are given a mirror finish. The end result is a case that plays well with the light and is very interesting to behold.
The dial is slightly domed and coupled with the domed sapphire crystal, giving the watch vintage vibes. There’s a fairly large seconds sub dial at 6 o’clock, a date window at 3 o’clock, and a power reserve indicator for the hand-wound movement’s massive 8 day reserve at 9 o’clock. The hours, minutes and seconds hands are gilt steel, whereas the hand for the power reserve indicator is blued steel.
