Baume & Mercier Clifton Club
Baume & Mercier unveils five versions of the Clifton Club model, sporty and elegant watches made for today’s « gentlesportsmen ».
In order to fulfil the needs of urban, active and elegant men, Baume & Mercier expands the Clifton Collection with a new serie of five timepieces, the Clifton Club models. This sports and multipurpose watch with a polished look for the accomplished aesthetes, elegantly revives sporting values while upholding traditional watchmaking principles.
This model was designed for men in all occasions, professional and sporting. Equipped with a mechanical self-winding movement with date function, the Clifton Club is hewn in a high-quality stainless steel. The 42 mm diameter case with a thickness of 10.3 mm, allows a daily use and can suit all wrist sizes. Important point, it is water-resistant to 100 meters.
Continuing the line of traditional shapes in the Clifton collection, which draws its aesthetic inspiration from the watches history, the horn-to-horn bevel that runs around the case echoes the elaborate curves of the watch. In the same vein, the integrated protected crown fits perfectly with the sporty, refined shape of this timepiece. The color schemes (black, white, blue) make the Clifton Club a fully polyvalent watch. It can be worn at the weekend and during the week, at the office and on a bike, on work trips and during the morning jog.
Several versions are available. The first two options are made of polished/satin-finished stainless steel case (black or white dials) and the “All Road” calfskin strap featuring an embossed sailcloth-like fabric exclusive to Baume & Mercier and lined with orange rubberized calfskin, reverse turned-edged. They offer astonishing resistance qualities. The strap will withstand anything, dry and wet friction, UV rays: this all-terrain strap can be worn 24 hours a day. Last but not least, its curved lugs were designed to offer perfect integration between the case and strap, as well as faultless comfort on the wrist.
The two following versions with a polished/satin-finished stainless steel case (black or blue dial) are equipped with steel bracelet for a more urban look. The integrated stainless steel bracelet, which also echoes the curves on the case and horns, is composed of three polished rows on the sides with a vertical satin finish on the upper edges. The fine adjustment links ensure the bracelet fits the wrist perfectly.
Lastly, Baume & Mercier unveils an all-black version. This virile and matte looking model features a black dial, stainless steel case with a black sand-blasted ADLC coating (amorphous diamond-like carbon, a coating of 2-3 μm thick that is incredibly hard and highly resistant to scratches and shocks) and an integrated black vulcanized rubber strap with openworked sections to offer natural ventilation to the wrist.
Four out of the five versions feature a triple folding buckle with two side pushpieces in stainless steel to guarantee security and ease of opening. This in-house design bears the “Phi” logo stamped on the top. Only the black rubber strap comes with a wide pin buckle in satin-finished stainless steel, also decorated with Baume & Mercier’s “Phi” logo.
To avoid any external inconvenience, the Clifton Club is equipped with an antiglare scratch-resistant flat sapphire crystal to optimize read-off. The opaline-finished or sun satin-finished dial, with protective Zapon varnish to fight oxidation, perfectly captures the light and optimizes read-off of the time throughout the day. To enliven the dial, the flange which features the timer is riveted with index dots and decorated on the edge with a slender inner band in an orange varnished finish. The curved riveted indexes and the Phi logo at 12 o’clock, symbolizing balance, are filled with Superluminova, for optimal visibility both day and night. For an harmonious effect, the hour and minute hands are also picked out in the same Superluminova finish, to enhance the overall design. Lastly, the central second hand finished in an athletic orange varnish features a subtle touch of luminescent Superluminova on the tip, allowing the user to check that their watch has not stopped. The larger screw-down crown allows for rapid adjustment of the date and precise setting of the time, thanks to its stop-second system.
