Baume & Mercier is adding new models to two of its most recently launched watch collections — the men’s Clifton line and ladies’ Promesse line — at SIHH 2017 in January. Here is a sneak preview of the new timepieces, both decked out in blue: the Clifton GMT Power Reserve and Promesse Moon Phase.
Boomerometer & Mercier Add New Models Two recently introduced watch collections – Men’s Clifton and Ms. Promesse Line – at SIHH 2017 January. This is a preview of a new watch, all covered in blue: Clifton Power Reserve and Greenwich Time Promesse Moon Phase.
The Baume hydrometer and the Metzger Clifton Greenwich time energy reserve are the latest “minor complications” in the Clifton collection, adding a complete calendar to the model before, such as this year’s chronometer. Equipped with a 43 mm stainless steel finish, the polished and satin finish features a double-bezeled, sun-satin-finished dark blue dial, a domed sapphire crystal that displays rich timing information. The central, rhodium-shaped hand displays the current time the same rhodium-plated Arabic numerals and indicators while the date is displayed in a window at 3 o’clock. The curved GMT time indicator, a useful feature frequent flyer, occupies space at 12 o’clock, and another semi-circular 6 o’clock display informs the user how much to look at the 42-hour power reserve.
The 50m waterproof case is visible through a threaded Sappro caseback with automatic Soprod 9035 movement, and its decoration includes a circular particle size mainplate and a bridge, a French blue screw and a Cortez de Geneva rotor reinforced. The watch is fitted with a square-scaled black alligator strap, silk stitching and triple-folding, adjustable, push-button-operated safety buckle. Baume hydrometer and Messier Clifton Greenwich time energy reserve retail price of $ 3,690.
The Baume hydrometer & Mercier Promesse lunar complexes look at the debut elegance that has historically influenced the Promesse collection, which was introduced in 2014. In the case of a stainless steel 34-mm case, the signature oval-shaped border 30 is embedded in the two crescent-shaped grooves of the crescent. Four brightly cut diamonds appear as hour markers in the blue lacquered discs, and the display elements are the upper phase of the moon phase display, above center-mounted hours and minutes under the hands and dome, shading, scratch-resistant crystals.
Movement in this watch is the Ronda 708, Swiss made quartz caliber, dare not get in the solid steel caseback four screws. The belt is smooth blue crocodile leather, safety pin buckle. Promesse Lunar stage set the price of 3790 US dollars. The new Baume hydrometer & Mercier watch, of course, more – will make their official debut at the SIHH 2017 Salon, which takes place from 16 January to 20 January in Geneva.
