The winning combination of elegant design and watchmaking expertise
The new Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar creates the perfect union between watchmaking expertise and elegant design. The personality of the timepiece gives it a high added value created by combining two functions: a chronograph and a complete calendar. This symbol of refinement is designed for men who want to stand out with a watch that is both unique and timeless, a blend of tradition and modernity.
Three versions are presented to satisfy a wide range of tastes and desires.
A WATCH FOR THE WONDERFUL MOMENTS IN LIFE
Clifton watches embody all the watchmaking expertise of Baume & Mercier. Loyal to its motto, “Accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality”, Baume & Mercier drew its inspiration from the “golden 50s” models in its museum collection. The simple, refined details of this new model, along with a firmly masculine and timeless design, will appeal to all lovers of beautiful watchmaking who are searching for a distinctive wristwatch to mark the great moments of life.
In this watch, Baume & Mercier relies on a look with a strong personality based on integrating two new fine watchmaking complications. The Chronograph Complete Calendar embodies the company’s belief that a watch is not an ordinary, everyday object but a potent symbol, a style statement, and a reminder of key moments that have marked one’s success. A timepiece reflects a very personal vision of time – a projection of one’s very self.
TWO CLASSIC COMPLICATIONS CREATE A TIMELESS STYLE
The Chronograph Complete Calendar, available in three versions, enriches the range of small complication timepieces, with all attributes to speak directly to men. Powered by a high quality Swiss-made automatic movement (Caliber Valjoux 7751), these three watches feature a highly classical design and offer two very practical complications: a complete calendar and a chronograph. The central-hand calendar date is complemented by a day and month indication (in two apertures at 12 o’clock and a day-night indicator at 9 o’clock). The moonphase function, incorporated in a counter at 6 o’clock, consists of a mobile disc that rotates in one lunar month of twenty nine and a half days. Chronograph seconds are indicated by a central seconds hand. Elapsed minutes and hours are shown on two small counters at 12 and 6 o’clock respectively, and the chronograph function is highlighted by hands in blued steel.
The sapphire crystal case back reveals high-quality refined finishes: the snailed and Côtes de Genève decoration of the oscillating weight, the circular-grained bridges and plate, and the blued screws. These details have all been brought to life with full respect to the Swiss watchmaking traditions of Baume & Mercier, who has always placed great importance on the superb finishes of its watches.
CLIFTON 10278 - THE TIMELESS QUALITY OF A SIMPLE ELEGANT DESIGN
With its case in polished/satin-finished steel, the Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar (reference 10278) emphasizes the timelessness of its simple elegant design. With a generous 43 mm diameter, the watch presents a silvered dial with sun satin-finished decoration, Arabic numerals and rhodium-plated applique indexes as well as a set of blued steel hands that emphasize the elements of the chronograph’s complications. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal of the case back reveals the automatic movement with a 48-hour power reserve and its fine watchmaking finishes. The beautifully crafted black alligator strap with square scales has been designed to integrate perfectly with the case middle and offer absolute comfort on the wrist. Its triple-folding buckle is highly ergonomic and fitted with security buttons.
