Baume & Mercier

The new Clifton Baumatic collection
comprises five pieces, including our
favourite, this 40mm red-gold edition,
complete with black alligator strap. The
immaculate white dial holds slender,
tapered hour markers and oversized
date aperture at three o’clock. The
self-winding movement – the calibre
BM13-1975A – runs for 120 hours, with
great chronomatic precision (-4/+6
seconds per day). Clear case back
reveals the inner movement. Water
resistant to 50m.
