Simple and refined, the watch shows curves and straight lines. The 42mm case is made of 18K red-gold. The dial, a domed disc in silvered opaline, with the small seconds counter inset at 6 o'clock, is set with numerals and indices that are individually applied then meticulously riveted from behind.

The Clifton 1830 is fitted with a Manufacture caliber adapted for Baume & Mercier by the La Joux-Perret Manufacture. Visible through the transparent case back, it has a power reserve of 90 hours and superior finishes that meet the standards of a Manufacture caliber: bridges decorated with “Côtes de Genève”, circular-grained bottom plate and the blued-steel screws.

The case back of the 43 mm case, water-resistant to 5 ATM, has been opened up to allow observing the components of its automatic movement (Dubois Dépraz 9000).
