It is the moment you discover the price of the Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar that marks this out as an exceptional luxury watch.

The stainless steel edition is retailing for just £2790 in the UK this month, and for that you get a chronograph with a complete calendar in a beautiful package.

When Baume & Mercier says: “Accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality,” it truly means it in this timepiece.

The watch is available in three models, each housing the Swiss-made Caliber Valjoux 7751 automatic movement. 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.

Options include a rose gold bezel on the 43mm case and steel or leather bracelet or strap.
