Baume & Mercier has married stylish athletic watch design with an affordable price tag once again as it continues to grow its Clifton Club collection.
The brand’s new Clifton Club Quartz, is powered by a Swiss-made quartz movement and boasts a design that looks to offer elegance, sporting prowess, functionality and comfort on the wrist.
Crafted in very high-quality stainless steel, the case has a round opening and a well-balanced diameter of 42 mm with a thickness of 9.55mm.
Unlike the Clifton Club Automatic, the Clifton Club Quartz reveals a non-rotating and snailed bezel that reinforces its athletic look. The color schemes (black, blue and contemporary orange) and water-resistance up to 10 ATM (100 meters) assured by a sealed, screwed-in caseback makes it a sporty, functional watch ideal for water sports.
The matte black, white or sun satin-finished blue dial with protective Zapon varnish to fight oxidation is designed to capture the light and optimize visibility. The date disc (black on the black dial or white on the blue dial) fits in harmoniously at 3 o’clock. The Clifton Club is also equipped with an anti-reflective scratch-resistant flat sapphire crystal on the inside.
Prices will start at around $1,500.
