This new Baume & Mercier RIVIERA BAUMATIC watch features a 42 mm diameter steel case, a dodecagonal bezel with twelve sides and four screws, a Baumatic movement, and an interchangeable steel strap.
The new men’s version of the Riviera still carries in its genes the silhouette and evocative power of the original 1973 model. The 2022 version of the Baume & Mercier Riviera Baumatic is available in a version with a smoky gray sapphire dial and an integrated steel strap.
The decoration introduced in 2021 has become the distinctive mark of these models, each of which is equipped with a Baumatic manufacture movement.
Its transparency offers a view of the gear trains of the Baumatic BM13 1975A automatic caliber and its tried-and-true performance: a five-day power reserve, a daily precision of -4 s / +6 s, and a magnetic resistance of 1500 Gauss, which provides solid protection against magnetic fields.
Its scratch-proof sapphire crystal has anti-glare coating on both sides, while its octagonal crown asserts a Phi logo engraving in relief.
About Riviera Baume & Mercier Watch Collection
Inspired by the carefree lifestyle of the French Riviera, this is the watch of casual elegance, symbolizing an easygoing view of refined watchmaking. It was first developed in 1973 and has adapted to every era, year after year, while staying true to its special style. Its steel adornments and strong shape have always represented a form of freedom, an offbeat elegance. And now it represents renewal.
In 2021, Baume & Mercier presented the fifth-generation Riviera, which continues to uphold the Maison’s expertise, capturing the signs of our modern times to better revisit them.
