Pre-SIHH 2016: Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar

Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar

At the SIHH 2016 Baume & Mercier will present the latest addition to the Clifton collection, a new small complication timepiece, the combination of a chronograph function with a complete calendar …

 

The new chronograph with its complete calendar (this is not a perpetual or annual calendar, the mechanism can not distinguish the length of the months) looks good. I have of course seen the ETA/Valjoux  7751 calibre being embedded in various cases of other brands, but I have to admit that I like the Baume & Mercier version a lot. The Clifton chronograph case yet seems to be almost perfect for the good and “old” 7751 …

Have a look at the very much sought after small complication. This combination, chronograph and complete calendar, ranks among the best sold ones at other brands offering comparable chronograph wristwatches …

Therefore I am sure the Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar will make its way. Its a safe haven!
