The watch everybody came to respect at their corner this year was the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar. It is an excellent watch, effectively the most captured one in their stall at SIHH 2019.

However, we should not fail to remember the way that their Clifton Baumatic assortment got an augmentation with 5 new different models (6 all together, including the ceaseless schedule). The premise of these new models is two highlights: the presentation of a red gold case and a gradated blue dial. Up until this point, the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic models just arrived in a steel or two-tone case. The dial choices were white or dark. With the new deliveries from Baume & Mercier in 2019, this is going to change for the better.

Steel or Gold

Baume & Mercier’s Clifton Baumatic watches are somewhat of a blend as far as their looks. They are not as exquisite as the Classima models but rather you likewise not energetic like the Clifton Club pieces. Try not to misunderstand me I’m not saying that they’re not cool watches since they are. Clifton Baumatic watches are some place in the energetic and rich scope of Baume & Mercier’s contributions. In any case, this assortment was somewhat restricted as of not long ago. This is because of the way that the greater part of their watches have white dials (aside from one model). With respect to case, the lone material you could get a watch was either steel or gold & steel ( as remembered for our article about bi-shading watches ). Indeed, the primary thing they did, was to add a gold case to their assortment. For the 2019 assortment, it just comes with the white dial adaptation though.


Speaking of dials, Baume & Mercier’s 4 curiosities – out of 6 – had graduated blue dials. It’ truly just 2 watches, in 2 forms. Allow me to clarify. In this way, interestingly, the Clifton Baumatic assortment got a development with 4 blue dial models. You have the Clifton Baumatic with chronometer accreditation (COSC), on a steel or cowhide lash. At that point you have the standard Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic with no chronometer affirmed development. This one likewise comes with a steel wristband or calfskin lash. That is 4, yet truly just 2 models. None of these Baumatic developments are new, the brand previously had them in this very assortment. The more seasoned models additionally come in steel cases with a crosshair on the dial on the chronometer models. The non-chronometer models have plain white, blue or dark dials, no crosshair. All watches are 40mm (however the gold), with domed sapphire precious stone and water obstruction up to 50 meters.


To summarize it, we have new Clifton Baumatic models with a blue dial. The more seasoned adaptations had white or dark dials. Every one of them had steel cases, however one. That was not a 2019 oddity that arrived in a bi-shading case and non-chronometer development. The other oddity that Baume & Mercier presented is an all gold case. That Clifton Baumatic without a doubt comes with a chronometer development inside and with a white crosshair dial. The case is 18-carat red gold, much the same as the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar. The gold watch has a width of 39mm and has glossy silk wrapping up. To coordinate the case material the hour markers on the dial just as the hands are in red gold. The lone special case is the second hand, which is anthracite. That is a similar tone as the crosshair on the dial.

With the arrival of the Baumatic development, Baume & Mercier turned into the main brand from Richemont to have a type with a silicon balance spring. While some imagine that have silicon in a mechanical development corrupts the brand, it has numerous positive highlights. Among others, it is against attractive. A component that comes in helpful nowadays, as we are encircled by attractive fields. The Baumatic self-twisting type (inside all Clifton Baumatic models) has 120-hours of force hold. Subsequently the phrasing on the dial; Baumatic 5 days/Chronometer (in the event of the COSC models). As per the brand, the assistance prerequisite of such type is in like clockwork. While you should take your watch to a watchmaker when it needs to not when the time is up, the type certainly diminishes the opportunity of any mistake. The recurrence of the Baumatic is 28.800 vph and it has 21 gems inside the movement.


The costs of the 2019 Clifton Baumatic models won’t be over €3000. Indeed, the non-chronometer variant will be around €2500 (contingent upon the lash/arm band). While the chronometer adaptations will be near €3000 yet under it. The gold case white dial chronometer Clifton Baumatic will be somewhat over €6000. These costs are reasonable and reflect current market costs. Comparative models from different gatherings are less expensive however none of them has a similar development, just comparable ones. On the off chance that it’s significant for somebody to have a mechanical watch with a tremendous force save, the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic is a watch to be thought of. The size and looks are incredible and contemporary. The Baumatic caliber is present day with a lot of extraordinary highlights that come helpful nowadays.
