£3,700.00

Availability: In Stock - Ready To Ship

This elegant day-date moon-phase watch combines a polished stainless steel case with a grey lacquered dial and sleek rhodium-plated riveted indexes for an undeniably magnetic appeal. Powered by in-house self-winding movement, it promises near flawless precision.

Overview

With the Clifton Baumatic 10548, Baume and Mercier have created a new timepiece that is reminiscent of the complicated watches that brought the brand to the forefront of watchmaking over a century ago. The first thing that one notices about the 10548 is the stunning anthracite lacquered dial, gently graduating darker towards the outer edge. The bevelled and riveted rhodium plated indices appear to glow in contrast to the dark dial. Baume and Mercier have broken away from the norm by introducing two sub dials on the face and positioning them at 6 & 12 o’clock which in turn forces the text that would normally reside there, into the 3 & 9 o’clock positions. The top sub dial indicates the day of the week through three letter abbreviations of the days with the lower dial telling the date in intermittent numbers and dots applied in white lacquer as are the minute markers and second indicators around the edge of the dial. But it is the moon-phase sat within the date sub dial that gives the 10548 a unique appeal, partially hidden behind the smoky grey window, the moon rises and sets against a midnight blue sky peppered with silver stars. The Baume and Mercier, Geneve text and logo now sits at 9 o’clock with Baumatic bringing a typographical balance at 3 o’clock, without which the overall beauty of the face would surely be less.

The slightly domed anti glare sapphire crystal further enhances the beauty of the dial, framed with a polished steel bezel angling down perfectly to blend into the 42mm case, again, also highly polished. The satin brushed flanks of the case sweep gently inwards to form the delicate lugs where the blue of the alligator strap subtly picks out the moon-phase dial. The strap is secured with a tri-folding clasp that fastens to present a signed buckle for the wearer, and is released using the security button either side. Baume and Mercier also provide the strap with built in release mechanisms, making alternating straps a simple procedure with no need for any tools.

The polished case back is secured using four screws and the in house BM14-1975A C2 movement can be admired. The movement offers a very impressive power reserve of 120 hours (5 days) and a respectable water resistance of 5 ATM (50m). The watch comes with a 2 year manufacturers warranty that can be extended to 3 years with no additional cost.

Personalisation

Versatility is key in this day and age. At 1010 Boutique we carry a range of straps for all Baume and Mercier timepieces in a variety of lengths. We recommend changing your straps regularly – perhaps simply for something different, maybe to suit your mood or a special occasion, but in doing so, it is possible to create a completely different look and feel of your wristwatch.

If a particular material, colour or style isn’t readily available, then we can offer a bespoke service to cater for your exact requirements at a very competitive price and minimal lead time.

I was desperately looking for a specific watch winder for my husband’s birthday which seemed to be sold out everywhere! What an extraordinary online and yet personal shopping experience. A custom service many should take an example of. I will for sure be a returning customer for many years ahead. Thank you so much A.! Greetings from Switzerland.

Would wholeheartedly recommend.
