Swiss luxury watch brand Baume & Mercier has added three new chronograph watches into the iconic Riviera collection.

Introduced in 1973, Riviera conveys the values of joy and carefree living that were synonymous with the free-spirited seventies. This year, the watch has been redesigned following Baume & Mercier’s Swiss know-how and integrating contemporary style codes.

Representing the fifth generation of the Riviera, the new collection was presented at Watches & Wonders 2021 with automatic 42-mm models, while top-of-the-range Baumatic versions in the same size were the standout stars of the collection.

The brand has added three variations of the new Riviera chronograph, whose diameter measures 43 mm. These three watches with assertive characters fit perfectly with this tradition. Staying true to the design of the original pieces, the Riviera automatic chronographs echo the legendary watch: a 12-sided bezel, a dial with a unique wave-shaped decoration symbolising the meeting between a mountain and the ocean, and interchangeable straps – using the Fast Strap system developed by the Brand – in steel or rubber.

Two versions are available, with a polished and satin-brushed steel case. The first is adorned with a blue sun satin-finished dial and a matching blue rubber strap. The second has a black sun satin-finished dial and an integrated steel bracelet. The third design completely black: a black case in microblasted ADLC-steel, a black sun satin-finished dial and a black rubber strap.

These new Riviera chronographs are equipped with the legendary “Swiss made” automatic movement Valjoux 7750 with a 48-hour power reserve and runs at 28,800 vph, or 4 Hertz.

Each model features a double day-date window at three o’clock, a small second hand at 9 o’clock and two sub-dials for chronograph functions: a minute counter at 12 o’clock and an hour counter at 6 o’clock.

The smartly designed case/bracelet integration provides the Riviera with beautifully balanced proportions as well as increased comfort for its wearer. The three new chronograph models are fitted with interchangeable straps that have a triple folding buckle and a safety clasp. They also feature the ingenious “Fast Strap” interchangeability system developed by Baume & Mercier, so the flexible or steel bracelet can be changed quickly.
