Baume & Mercier Riviera Moonphase M0A10681 and M0A10682

Baume & Mercier presents two new moon-phase watch models from its Riviera collection.

First released in 1973, the Baume & Mercier Riviera expresses the Brand’s expertise in design and exquisite use of materials. This classic timepiece with pure, slender lines is immediately recognizable with its twelve-sided bezel.

In 2021, Baume& Mercier presented the fifth-generation Riviera. The two new 43-mm Riviera Baumatic models convey Baume & Mercier’s expertise in design, shapes, and bold expression.

The Riviera Baumatic M0A10681 version is adorned with a gray rubber strap, topped with a canvas decoration. Its light sand-colored dial evokes the vast silvery deserts of the moon. Sun satin and lacquered, its dial is both beautiful and complex, enhanced by a dark gray flange in a hue that subtly reflects the auxiliary dial located at 6 o’clock to display the date and moon phases.

The 43 mm steel case upholds the characteristic codes of the Riviera family: a steel dodecagonal bezel fastened with four steel screws (black sand-blasted ADLC treatment), a Roman numeral at 12 o’clock, and riveted indexes at 3 and 9 o’clock.

Equipped with a triple folding buckle with security push-pieces and the “Fast Strap” easy adjustment system, the rubber strap features a very reliable interchangeability without the need for tools.

The Riviera Baumatic M0A10682 version comes with a steel bracelet and a blue dial. With a comfortable 43 mm diameter, its steel case features all the technical and artistic distinguishing marks that have made this model a success: a dodecagonal bezel fastened with four screws, riveted indexes at 3 and 9 o’clock, and a Roman numeral at 12 o’clock.

In this version, the sun satin, lacquered, tinted dial and flange asserts a bright azure blue. That same blue, which brings to mind the view of the Earth from the Moon, also appears on the frame of the auxiliary date dial located at 6 o’clock that displays the moon phases. The seconds hand is adorned with an elegant green color, while the Phi logo – the Brand’s symbol – appears on its counterweight.

The three-row steel bracelet of M0A10682 comes with a triple folding buckle, and simple, robust interchangeability system.

Both versions are powered by the self-winding mechanical Baumatic manufacture movement, which ensures exceptional performance: a five-day power reserve, a daily precision of -4 s / +6 s, and a magnetic resistance of 1500 Gauss, providing solid protection against magnetic fields.

This movement (Baumatic BM14 1975 AC1) is endowed with a 120-hour power reserve. The dodecagonal case back with a sapphire crystal offers the view of the calibre.

The Baume & Mercier “Moonphases” Riviera Baumatic watch is waterproof to 100 meters.
