CLIFTON COLLECTION INSPIRATION CREATES PERFECTION The Clifton collection was created to meet the needs of men who live in big cities and who want a timepiece with a clearly recognizable masculine style. Icon of the collection, a model inspired by an example of the historic collection of the Maison: the Clifton 1830 model. The craftsmanship of this timepiece by skilled and expert craftsmen materializes the traditional values that distinguish the Baume & Mercier brand. To be faithful to the original, the current red gold model is created using a stamping machine like the one used to create the historic copies. The watch features a «chevé» sapphire crystal, a slightly domed retro-style silvered sunray-brushed dial, hand-applied indexes and numerals. THE ESSENCE OF BALANCEThis elegant timepiece, a faithful reinterpretation of the vintage wristwatch, is distinguished by the larger 42 mm case in red gold, according to the current aesthetic taste. Powered by the Manufacture La Joux-Perret 7381 movement, the model remains resolutely in keeping with its origins. In keeping with an ancient tradition, in fact, the wearer will have to wind it manually to guarantee a 90-hour power reserve. Sober and balanced, reliable and precise as a chronometer, the Clifton 1830 model proposed on an alligator leather strap reveals centuries-old watchmaking mastery in the impeccable craftsmanship visible through the transparent caseback.NOBLE MATERIALS AND REFINED LINESThe Clifton model in 18K red gold it has similar dimensions to the historical model, since the characteristic double bevelled case is born with a diameter of 39 mm. Available with a silvered or anthracite dial with sunray satin finish, this superb example equipped with an alligator leather strap beats to the rhythm of a self-winding mechanical movement decorated according to techniques worthy of the highest watchmaking tradition, visible through the transparent caseback. The 43 mm full calendar version features a steel case and an alligator leather strap. The Clifton models, clearly recognizable by their characteristic double bevelled middle case, underline the constant pursuit of excellence and the deep attachment to the brand’s distinctive values.A MODERN ICONThe Clifton collection establishes itself as a refined line made up of models with a strong character and understated aesthetics, as well as specimens with complications such as moon phases. The 41 mm steel version is freely inspired by the models worn in the city by “white collars” in the 1950s. Powered by a self-winding mechanical movement visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, the Clifton models display hours, minutes, date and small seconds at 6 o’clock.
