Baume & Mercier Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit

To mark the Year of the Rabbit for Chinese New Year on January 22, 2023, Swiss luxury watch brand Baume & Mercier presents the Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit.

In the Chinese calendar, the New Year – also known as Lunar New Year – corresponds with the first day of the first month of the lunisolar Gregorian calendar, which is based both on the annual solar cycle and the regular moon phase cycle.

It always falls on a day of the crescent between January 21st and February 20th. The Spring Festival opens the year of the Rabbit on January 22, 2023, which will conclude on February 9, 2024 with the Lunar New Year’s Eve.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit

The traditional Chinese zodiac calendar is composed of a twelve-year cycle, with each common year made up of twelve moon cycles. The Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit watch evokes this system with the twelve sides of its dodecagonal shaped bezel.

Measuring 42-mm diameter, the polished and satin-brushed stainless steel case is enhanced by the marked contrast of its polished and sun satin stainless steel bezel against the smoky gray sapphire dial, adorned with a subtle wave decor.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit

The dial side of the watch has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on both sides. It extends into the Roman numerals and riveted indexes in 5N gold-plated PVD steel coated with Superluminova (C1, blue glow) and the faceted hands in 5N gold-plated PVD steel which indicate the hours, minutes and seconds. A narrow aperture at 3 o’clock reveals the date.

Each of the twelve years of the Chinese calendar is traditionally represented by an animal and an element. 2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit. The New Year’s slogan heralds luck and happiness: “金兔携名福,星月照万士” “The rabbit brings luck and is with you every day.”

The Rabbit appears at 8 o’clock on the dial of the Riviera Chinese New Year, since the number 8 represents luck and prosperity. It also adorns the dodecagonal case back, where a sapphire crystal reveals a superb open-worked gold-tone oscillating weight.

The design surrounding the Rabbit on the case back is a typical decorative pattern used on various Chinese instruments.

The Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit Edition watch is adorned with gold and red, two strong colors that the Chinese associate with joy. The Roman numerals, hands and indexes of the watch are gold-toned to express status, success and wealth.

The red accents symbolize celebration, happiness and peace. The delicate red line running along the octagonal crown, the red rabbit transfer on the case back, and the additional red strap – all evoke the festive spirit associated with the Chinese New Year.

Beating inside, the COSC- certified Baumatic Manufacture movement BM131975A is known for its chronometric precision, resistance to everyday magnetic fields, durability and robustness. Driving the hours, minute, second and date functions, this automatic calibre offers a power reserve of 120 hours (5 days).

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit

The Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit watch is also water-resistant to 10 ATM (approximately 100 m).

In polished and satin-finished stainless steel, the integrated bracelet of the Riviera Chinese New Year Rabbit features three rows and a triple folding clasp with security push-pieces.

Thanks to a very reliable and robust interchangeable system, it is possible to change the bracelet without the need for tools and to alternate with the integrated additional strap in grained and satin-finished red rubber.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Collection

The Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Collection has been enriched with three new timepieces with self-winding Baumatic manufacture movements. They combine the iconic Swiss Maison’s watchmaking expertise, simple and elegant design, and discreet luxury.

The new models in the Clifton Baumatic Collection are precisely three expressions of the Baumatic movement in all its magnitude. This expertise is expressed in the smallest details of this beautifully finished movement.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Collection

Bridges with a pearl finish, a sandblasted and snailed baseplate, an oscillating weight that is open-worked with a snailed Côtes de Genève decoration visible through a sapphire crystal case back, and a unique Baume & Mercier engraving delicately sculpt the watchmaking heart of these three pieces.

A case with a round, refined, and simple design coordinates with everything and has an understated and contemporary elegance.

Baume & Mercier COSC-Certified Clifton Baumatic Date

This timepiece showcases the hours, minutes, seconds, and the date, the latter in an enlarged aperture at 3 o’clock. These functions adorn a black lacquered dial punctuated by a white focal point pattern at its center.

Carefully crafted, the indexes are riveted and rhodium-plated with a slightly elongated trapezoid shape; the hands are faceted, rhodium-plated, and alpha-shaped.

Baume & Mercier COSC-Certified Clifton Baumatic Date

Protected by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on both sides, the polished/satin-finished stainless steel case is 40 mm in diameter and 11.3 mm thick. The sapphire crystal case back reveals the movement’s delicate finishes and is secured by four screws.

Baume & Mercier COSC-Certified Clifton Baumatic Date

The self-winding Baumatic BM13 manufacture caliber ensures precision, durability, and sturdiness, providing this timepiece with chronometric precision certified by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute), a 5-day power reserve (120 hours), protection against everyday magnetic fields, and water resistance to 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters).

This highly adaptable model is mounted on an interchangeable strap equipped with a highly reliable curved spring-bar system that makes it possible to replace the strap with another without using any tools.

Baume & Mercier COSC-Certified Clifton Baumatic Date

In addition to the black alligator leather strap with square scales that features gray stitching on the top and blue stitching on the inside accompanying this watch, it can also be worn with five other patinated calfskin straps.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Day-Date and Moon-Phase

The model comes with a gradient blue lacquered dial that opens up at 6 o’clock to show a starry sky that unfolds through a transparent gray sapphire crystal. A polished rhodium-plated black lacquered moon disk illuminates the decor.

The day appears in an aperture at 12 o’clock facing the date, which is set at 6 o’clock in perfect symmetry. Rhodium-plated riveted indexes with a slightly elongated trapezoid shape adorn the dial. The faceted alpha-shaped hands are also rhodium-plated and feature an elegant tip.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Day-Date and Moon-Phase

Made of polished/satin-finished stainless steel, the round case strikes a balance between a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of 13.2 mm. The domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on both sides ensures that the dial is easy to read. The sapphire crystal case back is secured by four screws.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Day-Date and Moon-Phase

The high-performance self-winding Baumatic BM14 manufacture movement provides the same advantages as the three-hand version: a 5-day power reserve (120 hours), protection against magnetic fields, and a case that is water-resistant to 5 ATM (approximately 50 meters).

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Day-Date and Moon-Phase

Each of these new timepieces comes with an interchangeable strap. The Clifton Baumatic Day-Date/Moon-Phase model is mounted on a black alligator leather strap with square scales featuring tone-on-tone stitching on the top and blue stitching on the inside.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar

In the Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar watch,  hours, minutes, seconds, day, date, month, leap year, and moon phases all share a luminous dial with optimal readability. The slender riveted indexes and finesse of the hour, minute, and counter hands with their golden silhouettes contrast harmoniously with the gradient gray lacquered dial. At 6 o’clock, a polished, lacquered gilt moon disk moves through a starry sky.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar 18K Pink Gold

This beautifully crafted timepiece is set in a round case that is 42 mm in diameter and 12.1 mm thick and made of polished/satin-finished 18K (750/1000) rose gold, as is the crown, which is also polished.

The movement’s refined finishes are revealed through a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on one side. The sapphire crystal case back is secured by six screws and features a gold oscillating weight reflective of its case.

Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar 18K Pink Gold

The self-winding Baumatic BM13 manufacture movement with a Dubois-Dépraz 55102 module offers the assurance of high-quality watchmaking expertise, namely a 5-day power reserve (120 hours) and protection against magnetic fields for a case that is water-resistant to 5 ATM (approximately 50 m).

This model is mounted on an interchangeable blue alligator leather strap with square scales featuring tone-on-tone stitching on the top and red stitching on the inside.

The alligator leather strap that comes with each of these Clifton Baumatic models can be replaced by a Patina calfskin strap available in five delicate patina colors: blue, brown, gray, green, and red.

Guarantied for 2 years, Clifton watches equipped with the Baumatic movement benefit from an additional one-year warranty by registering on the Baume & Mercier website.

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Baumatic Moon-phase, Reference M0A10681

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Baumatic Moon-phase, Reference M0A10681

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Baumatic Moon-phase, Reference M0A10681

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Baumatic Moon-phase, Reference M0A10682

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Baumatic Moon-phase, Reference M0A10682

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.

Baume & Mercier “Coastline” RIVIERA 33mm, Reference M0A10677

Baume & Mercier has released the new RIVIERA self-winding “Coastline” model in a 33-mm diameter steel case.

Baume & Mercier Coastline RIVIERA 33mm, Reference M0A10677

The watch comes with a gradated midnight blue lacquer dial set with 63 diamonds. The diamonds portray the seaboard of the French Riviera, beckoning to an adventure from Monaco to Saint Tropez. The asymmetry introduced by this gem-setting, which could be described as topographic – an effect made possible through the combination of precious stones in seven different sizes –, is a first for the Riviera collection.

The Baume & Mercier Riviera watch is back again this year in subtly grayish hues, with a 42 mm steel case and a slate dial on an interchangeable steel or gray rubber strap.

Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA New Models

Baume & Mercier has released four new self-winding watches from its CLASSIMA collection. Among them, three models are for men and the remaining one is dedicated to women.

CLASSIMA – M0A10695 & M0A10696

Baume & Mercier revisits the street style codes in a play of materials and timeless shades. Khaki is in the spotlight, with a versatile palette ranging from sand beige to olive green, offering a natural effect that adapts to every style.

With two large-sized models for a casual yet refined look, Classima explores this trend with elegance and understatement: khaki and sand hues, and a mixture of canvas, slate and steel.

Each watch features a 42 mm polished steel case with a screwed back and a self-winding movement with a 38-hour power reserve.

Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA 42 mm Automatic (with slate-grey dial and sand coloured flange), Reference M0A10695

The CLASSIMA M0A10695 model comes with a slate sun satin dial and sand-colored flange which coordinates with the hue of the solid canvas strap.

Rhodium-plated leaf hands delicately sweep along the enchanting undertones of the slate, pointing to the white Roman numerals and indexes which adorn the round dial. A date aperture appears at 3 o’clock. For an aesthetic touch, the seconds hand is beige, the dominating color of this model.

Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA 42 mm Automatic (with slate-grey dial and sand coloured flange), Reference M0A10695

The CLASSIMA M0A10696 model reveals a warm silver sun satin dial, with a green flange that emphasizes the perfect roundness of this adventurous Classima. Black Roman numerals and indexes are indicated by black leaf hour and minute hands.

The seconds hand is green, like a camouflage for this setting. The interchangeable green canvas strap provides casual character, but the timepiece remains a smart, understated, contemporary watch.

CLASSIMA – M0A10694 & M0A10691

Made for the perfect classic chic look, these Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA watches feature eye-catching burgundy color dial.

CLASSIMA M0A10694: This gent’s Classima watch comes with a polished 42 mm steel case. It features a large burgundy sun satin dial with a blue flange which brings the minute track a more pronounced depth. In turn, it emphasizes the perfectly balanced circle.

Baume & Mercier CLASSIMA 42mm Automatic with Burgundy Dial, Reference M0A10694

The three rhodium-plated leaf hands delicately point to the white Roman numerals and indexes. An elegant date aperture is unveiled at 3 o’clock.

The self-winding movement, which offers a 38-hour power reserve, is nestled within the case. Its solid back offers room for the creativity of a personalized engraving. A straight spring-bar system makes it possible to change the strap easily.

CLASSIMA M0A10691: This adorable 34 mm ladies watch has a polished steel case, mounted on a five-row metal strap that elegantly nestles against the wrist. The quick, simple interchangeability system makes it easy to switch to the blue canvas version, offering a versatile look.

Baume & Mercier Classima 34mm Automatic with Burgundy Dial, Reference M0A10691

The small, perfectly round case is incredibly slender, and it reveals a sun satin dial with hypnotic burgundy and blue undertones. The eye is then drawn along the iridescent minute track that curves along the edge. It features the rhodium-plated Roman numerals and indexes characteristic of this collection. Leaf hands sweep lightly along them. A date aperture appears at 3 o’clock.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

Swiss watch brand BAUME & MERCIER presents BAUME OCEAN II, a new timpiece crafted from upcycled materials in collaboration with the Belgian NGO Waste Free Oceans (WFO) and the Spanish organization SEAQUAL INITIATIVE.

These two leaders in ocean protection, with which the House has been working since 2018, collect plastic pollution from the oceans and to transform it into innovative products. The Swiss watch maker released this new BAUME OCEAN II watch on the World Ocean Day (06 June) this year.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The case of the new BAUME OCEAN II model is made with marine debris plastic that is recovered throughout the world by WFO and then processed. Special attention was brought to the selection of the material to ensure that it is of a high quality in terms of performance and durability. The watch case features a recycled plastic cover produced by WFO, composed of 80% plastic waste gathered by the NGO that has been mingled with 20% fiberglass in order to reinforce its resistance.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

By combining a movement protected by an aluminum container with the case that clips onto it, the innovative structure of the BAUME OCEAN II brings life to a creation that perfectly mingles design with Swiss watchmaking quality.

The great purity of the sun satin-finished oceanic blue dial is heightened by the ideal proportions of the shapes and finishes so distinctive of BAUME & MERCIER. The model maintains emblematic BAUME features like the off-center knurled crown at 12 o’clock reminiscent of pocket watches, as well as articulated lugs in black anodized aluminum.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The reworked case is open-worked on the side instead of being solid, revealing the blue anodized aluminum container that protects the movement. The blue vibe and open-working emphasize the athletic line of this exquisitely designed timepiece, while white transfers contrast with the blue background to lend the piece a depth evoking the ocean.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

BAUME & MERCIER has gone one step further into its original approach to displaying time by replacing the large minute hand with a small hand in the shape of a bird’s beak to create the illusion of a single central hand.

The BAUME OCEAN II watch is equipped with a Swiss Made self-winding mechanical movement with a 38-hour power reserve. It is water-resistant to 30 meters.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The new BAUME OCEAN II features a woven strap in upcycled PET (made of 100% recycled plastic) with lighter blue overstitching. The edge is remborded and lined with black cork for improved comfort in wear. The interchangeable strap may be detached and changed thanks to a system of recycled walnut buttons.

BAUME & MERCIER BAUME OCEAN II

The new BAUME OCEAN II model comes in a hexagonal recyclable cardboard box with a felt lining in recycled polyester.

BAUME & MERCIER will donate 5% from the proceeds of the BAUME OCEAN II watch to its two partners, Waste Free Oceans and SEAQUAL INITIATIVE.

Baume & Mercier Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages” Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand Baume & Mercier presents the Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages”, a limited edition timepiece as a tribute to famous French abstract artist Pierre Soulages.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages Limited Edition

In January 1979, Pierre Soulages inaugurated a series of works at his Parisian workshop which he called Noir-Lumière. In 1989, the series became known as Outrenoir. The surface of each painting is coated with black paint in various states, textured into low relief with tools and brushes.

Each Outrenoir painting plays on with the light that reveals its appearance to the viewer, particularly as the person moves. When the light is more intensely reflected, the black appears less black, and its surface effects become more noticeable, more active. Soulages’ black successively appears glossy or matte.

Musée Soulages in Rodez possesses a collection of the master’s works like none other. The painter was born in that city in 1919. With support from MuséeSoulages and the Association des Amis du Musée, the watchmaker Baume et Mercier approached Pierre Soulages with the project for a unique watch paying tribute to his work.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages Limited Edition

Liberally taking inspiration from an Outrenoir painting by Pierre Soulages to turn it into a watch creation is an idea based on admiration and recognition, but bringing it to life poses a technical challenge. One work in particular guided the experiment, the exceedingly elevated Peinture 390 x 130 cm 17 mars 2019.

This work – which the Soulages couple donated to MuséeSoulages in 2020 – celebrates the painter’s 100th birthday, a testimony to his vitality and inspiration. The work guides the light through a play of overlapped panels of slanted streaks which sweep from one side of the composition to the other. The action painting technique that Soulages developed cuts into the black acrylic material to produce a variety of matte-and-shine effects. The light released by the painting is essential, in that it may also bear the full spectrum of colors.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages Limited Edition

The challenge of the watch designer was to reflect the spirit and content of this work. To this effect, the Baume & Mercier team took care to bring out contrasts in the way light reflects off the watch components. Each detail of the dial and case is eloquent, revealing the beauty of the timepiece. The finishes take on their full meaning, as pertinent on the watch as they are on a painting.

Baume & Mercier chose the Hampton model for its transposition of an Outrenoir work into a timepiece. The iconic Hampton asserts a rectangular dial and case evoking the proportions of a canvas. Since its launch in 1994, the Hampton has represented the ultimate non-round watch. It is distinctive for its design, inherited from one of the House’s models dating from the 1960s that was in turn inspired by the Art Deco of the 1920s.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages Limited Edition

The aesthetic approach to clean, curved lines and perfect proportion demonstrates the artistic sense that is so important to the House. Indeed, it is no coincidence that the model has taken the Greek letter Phi – a reference to the golden ratio – as its emblem. The formal minimalism and understatement of the Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages” helps to showcase this tribute to Pierre Soulages’ artwork, while the restraint of the refined timepiece echoes the purity that characterizes his paintings.

Even the exclusive case in which the watch is presented pays tribute to the contemporary architecture of MuséeSoulages, designed by the Catalan RCR Arquitectes who won the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2017. The cladding of the building is made up of Corten steel, which has an appearance of iridescent rust. Here, again, is the question of time and the patina that it creates.

The timepiece will be accompanied by a leaflet telling details of the collaboration and a VIP pass for two for the MuséeSoulages in Rodez. A book on the work of Pierre Soulages will also be sent to each owner of a Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages”.

In the exciting, innovative interaction between art and watchmaking, technical achievement is the keystone of the Hampton “Hommage à Pierre Soulages.” A watch dial miniaturization is a fascinating interpretation of a large-scale painting.

Baume & Mercier makes use of new 3D printing technologies for this achievement. The preparatory work was an adventure of great consideration, trial-and-error, and finally success. Through a meticulous topography, advanced research and 3D wax printing, the ideal procedure was finally found: one that would liberate the volumes, reveal the details and bring out the beauty of this work in a continual interaction between shade and light.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages Limited Edition

For the dial, brass machined with a laser was found to suitably meet this challenge. Candia stone is used to create a diffuse matte effect, and an electroplating process is then applied to coat it with color through electrolysis to a thickness of 0.2 microns. One last coat of sheer, semi-matte protective lacquer to a thickness of 10 microns, and the piece is finished: black yet wreathed in light, filled with masterful contrasts.

The faceted brass “glaive” hands are diamond-ground, sand-blasted, and then coated with black PVD. A touch of gold is added to the end of each one on request by Pierre Soulages in order to elegantly emphasize the passage of time. The case, sculpted in a stainless steel block, is sand-blasted and then coated with hydrogenated amorphous carbon ions through plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition (PACVD) to a thickness of 2 microns, providing a hardness of 6,000 Vickers.

Each material and finish is more ingenious than the last, capturing and sculpting the light, borrowing from the artist’s strokes to bring movement to the shapes and rhythm to the material. The self-winding mechanical Swiss caliber (ETA 2892) features a black oscillating weight adorned with a “Côtes de Genève” that can be seen through the transparent watch back.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages Limited Edition

The back bears a “Hommage à MrSoulages” engraving. “Baume & Mercier” appears as a metallic engraving on the underside of the domed sapphire crystal. Both sides of the crystal feature an anti-glare treatment to ensure that the image of the painting remains perfectly intact.

To intensify the chromatic depth of the watch, it comes complete with a built-in interchangeable strap in black leather with square scales and a nubuck finish that fastens with a pin buckle in DLC steel.

This unique timepiece offers a harmonious play on contrasting blacks through subtle nuances of mattes, semi-mattes, shine and diffuse layers, in keeping with the spirit of Pierre Soulages’ work. The strength of black is majestically represented in this tribute to the paintings of one of the most fascinating artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The “Hampton Hommage à Pierre Soulages” is limited to 102 (reflecting the age of the artist) individually numbered watches.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph: References M0A10623, M0A10624 and M0A10625

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph

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.

Baume & Mercier Riviera Chronograph

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.

Baume & Mercier Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition

Following the success of a first Baume Skate – HRS edition timepiece in 2018, and the Baume Ski – Zag Editions in 2019, Swiss watch brand Baume & Mercier presents a new Baume Skate timepiece in collaboration with the young and talented French skateboarder Aurelien Giraud.

Baume & Mercier Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition

The new Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition, featuring an automatic SW200 movement, has a 42mm casing made using used skate decks from Aurélien and production excesses that were plan to be destroyed making the Baume Skate a new symbol of the concept of upcycling.

A blue anodized aluminium container encapsulates the movement and clips onto the casing to protect the movement from any external damage and ensures water-resistance.

Baume & Mercier Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition

The shape of the casing was made using a machine to make several discs in the skate decks, which were then treated using water-based resin to strengthen the wood, whilst ensuring it remained 100% airtight.

The processing and finishing of the cases were completed in Switzerland using a combination of traditional man operated processes and digital machines. Keeping in line with Baume & Mercier watchmaking roots, the Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition cases were finished off with a “handmade” feel.

Baume & Mercier Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition

This special timepiece features a dial made out of original grip tape that you can find on every skate deck. A subtle element creating a luminous yet completely new effect on the dial and paying tribute to one the key material of the skate culture. This grip tape centred disk is rotating based on a 12h rhythm illustrating the will of the Baume collection to introduce out-of-the-box time display.

Baume & Mercier Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition

The hour hand being symbolized by the Baume logo and giving the impression to the owner that he is wearing a mono-hand timepiece. It’s not about making time stand still, it’s about making time move differently.

The dial is mixing red and blue tones echoing Aurelien’s favourite colours giving to the timepiece a masculine yet stylish aesthetic. The back engraving has been made possible by the use of a thermal laser for a high-quality look and the back sapphire glass is displaying Aurelien’s signature.

Baume & Mercier Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition

The Baume Skate Aurelien Giraud Special Edition is mounted on a cotton strap that is fixed to steel black PVD lugs thanks to the unique Baume’s collection interchangeable strap button system. The black cotton strap is built with multiple applications such as lining or a red tag merged with Aurelien’s initials into the strap and is featuring a black cork back lining for even more comfort on wrist.

Baume & Mercier Hampton New References (10628/10629/10630/10631)

Baume & Mercier Hampton is a famous watch with a rectangular case that was unconventional and avant-garde when it was launched. It was designed in tribute to Art Deco, the famous artistic movement of the early 20th century. This year, the Swiss luxury brand reveals four new Hampton watches, offering a procession of materials, shapes, contrasts and colors, featuring a broad variety of interchangeable straps to suit every whim.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631
Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631

The Art Deco elements remain distinctive, yet they blend into each piece, allowing them to be personalized and adapted on a whim. The new Hamptons feature a small case equipped with a long-lasting quartz movement and a solid case back.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10628

This refined watch features a red agate, set into the cabochon-shaped crown. This semi-precious stone is known for its grounding properties, providing stability, harmony and relief.

The small watch case in polished 18K pink gold asserts its finesse with a titanium back that protects the long-lasting quartz movement. The grained texture of the opaline silver dial adds a soft, slight contrast.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10628

The domed sapphire crystal allows the light to filter between the gold-tone hands, revealing the Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock, as well as riveted rhodium-plated indexes in a matching gold tone. The gray minute track discreetly emphasizes the rectangular shape characteristic of the Hampton watches.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10628

The tone-on-tone overstitched orange calfskin strap brings out the beauty of the gold case. As in the other pieces from the collection, a straight spring-bar system makes it possible to change the supple strap easily, on a whim.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10629

This Hampton watch by Baume & Mercier reveals a synthetic blue spinel set into its delicate cabochon-shaped crown.

The polished steel case brings the piece a contemporary character. Its small size, 35 x 22.2 mm, 6.9 mm thickness, and finesse, make it a delightful, airy watch to wear. Its wrap-around strap lightly embraces the wrist and fastens with a delicate pin buckle.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10629

Its domed sapphire crystal is a subtle reference to the rounded curves characteristic of Art Deco. The grained texture of the opaline silver dial accentuates the shape of the case, of which the concentric rectangular designs create an illusion of depth.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10629

The dial features Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock as well as riveted rhodium-plated indexes, creating a perfect symmetry for the “glaive” hands that gracefully sweep along them. Its edge is adorned with a midnight blue minute track which coordinates with the hue of the calfskin strap topped with Art Deco designs.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10630

This slightly offbeat model offers a contemporary interpretation of the Hampton collection. A black agate is set into the cabochon-shaped crown. The virtues of this stone include focusing scattered energies and providing stability and self-confidence.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10630

This variation is based on the same rectangular polished steel case and has the same finesse, but the effect is very different. The rectangle, echoed several times on the dial by a sun satin-finished opaline green, provides the ultimate geometric Art Deco effect. Its look is enhanced by a double minute track in frosted silver.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10630

Its shine brings an unprecedented depth to what remains a streamlined piece. Riveted rhodium-plated digits and indexes add the watchmaker’s touch. The black canvas strap emphasizes the true uniqueness of this watch, far from traditional codes. However, it is possible to mount the watch case on a metal or calfskin strap, since the interchangeability system is available on all the collection’s pieces.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631

This diamond-set Hampton model features a cabochon-shaped crown, which is set with a green chrysoprase stone. The polished steel case is featured here in its small version, 35×22.2 mm. Fine, feminine and graceful. As an ultimate touch of refinement, each side of the case is set with a total of 28 diamonds, which extend down to elegantly emphasize its rounded horns.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 1063

The grained opaline silver dial features Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock as well as riveted rhodium-plated indexes, creating a perfect symmetry for the “glaive” hands that gracefully sweep around them. A gray minute track runs around the edge for a more understated look.

Baume & Mercier Hampton 10631 watch case back

The watch is presented with an integrated three-row strap in polished / satin-finished steel topped with a triple folding clasp.

Baume & Mercier Riviera

Created in 1973, the Baume & Mercier Riviera watch echoes the spirit of a distinguished watchmaking era. Known for its twelve-sided bezel reflecting the twelve hours displayed on its dial, this unique wristwatch has been relaunched by the Swiss watch brand.

Baume & Mercier Riviera 42mm Automatic, Reference 10621
Baume & Mercier Riviera 42mm Automatic, Reference 10621

Revived in 2021, the Riviera strikes a balance between its roots in avant-garde ‘70s design and the sport-minded classicism of today’s watches. More than any other, the Riviera collection demonstrates the expertise of Baume & Mercier in the field of unusually shaped watches. Its uncompromisingly creative approach and recreational aspirations express the essence of the iconic Swiss brand’s style, then and now.

Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Quartz, reference 10612
Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Quartz, reference 10612

The new generation Riviera watch is available in three size variations, each in steel: diameters of 36 mm, 42 mm and 43 mm. Loyal to the original, the “Swiss Made” self-winding Riviera in a 42 mm diameter revisits the fundamentals of the legendary model.

Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Quartz, reference 10613
Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Quartz, reference 10613

It has a dodecagonal – twelve-sided – bezel, true it its form; a unique decoration (blue, black or silver) that symbolizes the convergence of the mountains and the ocean; and interchangeable straps in steel or blue rubber for a “full blue” version. The shape of the original 1973 watch is still present, but it has been updated to suit the demands of the modern era.

Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Quartz, reference 10614
Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Quartz, reference 10614

In a 36 mm diameter, the Riviera addresses active, independent women with assertive personalities. As feminine as can be, it is driven by a “Swiss Made” quartz movement; its steel version is adorned with an azure blue or silver dial, while its rubber strap version features a black dial.

Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Automatic (reference 10615)
Baume & Mercier Riviera 36mm Automatic (reference 10615)

A self-winding version equipped with a tried-and-true “Swiss Made” movement is also available as part of this refined line; and like the entire women’s collection, it is water-resistant to 50 meters (the men’s timepieces are water-resistant to 100 meters).

Baume & Mercier Riviera 42mm Automatic, Reference 10619
Baume & Mercier Riviera 42mm Automatic, Reference 10619

Last but not least, the Riviera also docks at the marina to showcase a luxury version equipped with the in-house BAUMATIC caliber, which has been known and acclaimed for several years, particularly through its success with the Clifton collection.

Baume & Mercier BAUMATIC Riviera Automatic 42mm Reference 10617
Baume & Mercier BAUMATIC Riviera Automatic 42mm Reference 10617

The BAUMATIC movement also drives the ultimate interpretation of the Riviera by proposing –among other features – 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 on an everyday basis.

Baume & Mercier Classima Moonphase Automatic Watch, 34mm (reference 10633)

For watch enthusiasts seeking a beautiful timepiece that is easy to wear, Baume & Mercier presents two elegant Classima self-winding watches that mingle watchmaking codes with refined materials. Two models are available: 31mm and 39mm.

In its 31 mm version, the round 18K pink gold case features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that reveals a delicate white mother-of-pearl dial emphasized by a graceful iridescent minute track.

A date aperture appears at 3 o’clock, to the left of the cabochon-shaped crown, for a more feminine touch. The result is elegant and streamlined. Turning the piece over, the open case back – in sapphire and titanium – reveals a self-winding movement that beats to the pace of the hours, minutes and seconds.
