The watch everybody came to respect at their stall this year was the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar. It is a delightful 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 expansion with 5 new different models (6 all together, including the never-ending schedule). The premise of these new models is two highlights: the presentation of a red gold case and a gradated blue dial. Up until now, 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 rich as the Classima models but rather you likewise not lively 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 lively and rich scope of Baume & Mercier’s contributions. Be that as it may, this assortment was somewhat restricted as of recently. This is because of the way that a large portion of their watches have white dials (with the exception of one model). Concerning case, the solitary material you could get a watch was either steel or gold & steel ( as remembered for our article about bi-shading watches ). Indeed, the main thing they did, was to add a gold case to their assortment. For the 2019 assortment, it just comes with the white dial rendition though.


Speaking of dials, Baume & Mercier’s 4 curiosities – out of 6 – had graduated blue dials. It’ truly just 2 watches, in 2 adaptations. Allow me to clarify. Thus, interestingly, the Clifton Baumatic assortment got an extension with 4 blue dial models. You have the Clifton Baumatic with chronometer accreditation (COSC), on a steel or cowhide tie. At that point you have the standard Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic with no chronometer guaranteed development. This one additionally comes with a steel arm band or cowhide lash. That is 4, however truly just 2 models. None of these Baumatic developments are new, the brand previously had them in this very assortment. The more established 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 (yet the gold), with domed sapphire precious stone and water opposition up to 50 meters.


To summarize it, we have new Clifton Baumatic models with a blue dial. The more established adaptations had white or dark dials. Every one of them had steel cases, yet one. That was not a 2019 oddity that arrived in a bi-shading case and non-chronometer development. The other curiosity 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 measurement of 39mm and has 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 feel that have silicon in a mechanical development undermines the brand, it has numerous good 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 save. Thus the phrasing on the dial; Baumatic 5 days/Chronometer (if there should arise an occurrence 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 unquestionably decreases 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. In actuality, the non-chronometer variant will be around €2500 (contingent upon the lash/wristband). While the chronometer variants will be near €3000 yet at the same time 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 yet none of them has a similar development, just comparable ones. In the event that it’s significant for somebody to have a mechanical watch with an immense force save, the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic is a watch to be thought of. The size and looks are extraordinary and contemporary. The Baumatic caliber is current with a lot of incredible highlights that come helpful nowadays.
