Baume & Mercier’s best selling point is that you get Richemont’s advanced watchmaking skills and experience distilled into the group’s least expensive watches.
The Baumatic BM14 in-house calibre is central to this positioning, and is used in an extension to the Clifton Baumatic collection this year, the M0A10547.
At CHF 13,800, this is an expensive watch in the Baumatic portfolio, but you do get a watch with day, date and moonphase complications on a grey lacquered dial housed in a solid 18ct rose gold case measuring 42mm across.
The watch has sapphire crystal on the front and back.
The exhibition caseback reveals the movement with its 18ct oscillating weight.
