Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph Reference M0A10722

Introduced in 1973, Riviera is a casual elegant watch collection inspired by the carefree lifestyle of the French Riviera. It has adapted to every era, year after year, while staying true to its own special style. In 2021, Baume & Mercier presented the fifth-generation Riviera. Since then, the Riviera has revealed a number of variations. The brand is now celebrating the 50th anniversary of this iconic watch series.

In the ’90s, the first Riviera chronographs were launched. The story continues this year with the distinctive new bicolor model thanks to a combination of titanium and gold-tone PVD.

With its 43-mm steel case and its dodecagonal bezel in sand-blasted titanium fastened with four sand-blasted steel screws, this piece asserts a strong character.

This automatic chronograph is driven by Swiss Made Calibre Valjoux 7750, a premium self-winding mechanical movement known for its reliability and precision.

Water-resistant to 100 m, it displays the day and date in two horizontal apertures located at 3 o’clock. Emblematic of sports elegance, this watch offers the strength of evocating the original models from the ’70s while revisiting their DNA.

Its slate-gray hue is sun-satin, featuring a gray flange and carved-and-snailed auxiliary counters that create an impression of very deep relief. The perfectly proportioned, skeletonized gold-tone hands are coated with white Superluminova (blue glow), echoing the gold-tone ring that subtly appears between the bezel and the caseband.

The sapphire crystal of the dodecagonal back, fastened with four screws, reveals the tried-and-true self-winding movement that drives this distinctive chronograph. Moreover, the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal on the front has an anti-glare coating on both sides for perfect readability.
