Baume and Mercier Clifton 10551
Availability: In Stock - Ready To Ship
The 2020 Clifton Baumatic epitomises a refined classic case combined with subtle and attractive dial design. Pair these attributes with a state of the art in-house manufactured movement boasting a five day power reserve and you have the perfect watch for the demanding gentleman that will exceed in any situation of daily wear.
The Clifton Baumatic line was introduced in 2018 and has since been something of a landmark in the timeline of Baume and Mercier. The classic and timeless round case design comes in at 40mm giving an extremely versatile size that will suit most wrist sizes. The tops of the case and the bezel are highly polished with the flanks having a brushed satin finish, thus emphasising the beautiful case geometry further. The domed anti-scratch sapphire crystal continues the overall curvature perfectly from the edge of the bezel.
The dial is finished in a sunburst grey, light at the centre, darkening to a deep anthracite towards the outer edge contrasted with a white minute track and rhodium plated bevelled indices that all point to the centre. Your eye is drawn to the white crosshair that balances the dial perfectly and references the underlying accuracy of this piece. The large date aperture, subtly bevelled, presents clear reading of the crisp white font on a black background. Seconds are denoted towards the outer edge in 5 second increments. Text on the dial is neatly placed vertically through the centre, creating a harmony with the date and aforementioned cross hair design. The rhodium plated angular sword style hands – strong, yet delicate, meet the tips of the indices precisely.
The polished display case back allows a view of the in-house manufactured BM13-1975A movement. Certified by COSC (-4/+6 sec per day) the movement and its oscillating weight have been meticulously detailed with Côtes de Genève and snailed decor. With advances in movement design including a silicon balance spring that is antimagnetic and lighter than the standard materials, as well as being less sensitive to vibration, combined with improved escapement design, the BM13-1975A has increased autonomy of approximately 30% which amounts to being able to offer a 5 day power reserve.
The 10551 is mounted on a five link bracelet in polished and brushed steel, featuring curved ends that meet perfectly with the case, it can easily be removed using the quick release mechanism and replaced with a leather strap. The bracelet is secured with a tri-folding clasp and released with the two security buttons incorporated within.
All in all, the Clifton Baumatic range, including the 10551 represents a superior timepiece at a very attractive price point. Manufacturers warranty of 3 years as standard.
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.
