The Baume & Mercier Clifton watch collection provides variety and diversity with its line of classic dress watches. Stylishly dressed and built from a selection of premium materials, these superior timepieces intend to impress with their simple three handed designs and their calendar models. The Clifton watch by Baume & Mercier is styled on the original Clifton watch of the 1950’s. The designs come in a range of dial colours, functions and case sizes to suit both male and female tastes as well as individual requirements.
If you haven’t already familiarised yourself with the iconic Clifton watch collection by Baume & Mercier you will more than likely be impressed with the range’s selection of different styles. Power reserve indicators and moonphase features are showcased on watches designed to be worn by the traveller or the busy on-the-gent. Keeping on track of a second timezone has been made as effortless as possible with a simple, clear layout for easy time reading. Watches from the Baume & Mercier Clifton collection are developed with sapphire crystal glass lenses which not only provide a clear view into the dial but also offer an exclusive insight into the heart of the watch through the case back. The window reveals elements of Baume & Mercier’s superior craftsmanship with an independently developed automatic movement put on show as is performs peerlessly inside a robust stainless steel housing.
The Clifton watches on show within our Baume & Mercier range here at Owen & Robinson include designs fitted with polished stainless steel bracelets and classic leather straps with a traditional pin buckle. The dial colours vary from a sumptuous midnight blues, to a classic silvers and a sophisticated black. Date windows are often positioned at 3 o’clock on the dial of a Baume & Mercier Clifton watch. They provide an easy way for the wearer to keep track of all those important events throughout the month and are often dressed against bright white backgrounds to contrast against the colour of the dial and enhance legibility.
Expert designers at Baume & Mercier’s manufacturing facilities have played about with various textures and different colours in the making of these exquisite timepieces. The dials feature elements like rose gold coloured dauphine-shaped central hands and blued seconds hands which accompany chronograph counters, creating a sporty elegant look upon the wrist. Flashes of red are also used in designs like the Baume & Mercier Clifton GMT Power Reserve watch, complete with a polished 43mm stainless steel bezel. The red hints are applied to the power reserve indicator and the 24 marker on the GMT feature. The Arabic numerals and discreet minute markers on the dial of this watch are wonderful additions to this stylish instrument, which secures comfortably against the wrist with an authentic black leather strap and a pin buckle with polished finishes. Other Baume & Mercier Clifton watches, particularly the ladies’ versions, are completed on robust stainless steel link bracelets, some of which bear gorgeous flecks of blush pink tones running through the links of a bi-colour bracelet finished in rose gold PVD.
