Clifton Calendrier Perpétuel
Clifton Perpetual Calendar
This year, in order to enrich Crichton’s extraordinary range of models, Baume & Mercier launched an excellent perpetual calendar watch. The perpetual calendar, a very classic timepiece complication, is a big challenge to test structural design and miniature technology. This perpetual calendar mechanism that replicates the mechanics of celestial bodies is the most successful of the so-called ‘astronomical’ complex functions. In order to accurately consider all the large and small monthly changes in the Gregorian calendar, the Crichton Perpetual Calendar watch is equipped with a Vaucher 5401 self-winding movement developed from Dubois Depraz 5100. The movement is equipped with a mechanical memory of up to 1461 days ‘That is four years. In addition, in order to stay true to the tradition of watch art, the movement’s splint bridge is embellished with ‘Geneva ornament’, and the chassis main board is decorated with round ornaments and blue steel screws. The micro-rotor design makes the movement slimmer, only 4.2 mm thick, and the micro-rotor also embellishes the brand’s Phi logo and spiral ornamentation.
The beautifully curved 42 mm, 18K red gold case is equipped with a sapphire crystal glass back. Through this case, you can see through the movement embodying the fine watch decoration process. This precisely beaten heart beats 21’600 times per hour. 48-hour power reserve. The Clayton Perpetual Calendar has a low-key and elegant reading and display design. The anti-glare sapphire crystal glass provides clear and easy-to-read characteristics. The arc-shaped silvery milky dial shows an elegant and noble classic look, with 18K red. Gold rivet-type numerals and engravings show a beautiful contrast; and blue steel hands also make the calendar function more prominent. The date is displayed at 3 o’clock, the day of the week is displayed at 9 o’clock, and the month and leap year cycles are set at 12 o’clock. The timeless elegance of this Clayton perpetual calendar extends to the all-in-one black alligator strap with 18K red gold pin buckle. This watch conforms to the tradition of meticulous production and attention to detail of high-end watches, and also meets Baume & Mercier’s philosophy of providing affordable timepieces. Even timepieces with large complications are affordable luxury.
