Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic Day-Date/Moon-Phase - with a new gradient blue lacquered dial
By SENATUS Magazine | 23 March 2023

Moon phases have been invited onto the original Baumatic movement. While this model already exists in several versions, it has now been adorned for the first time 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.

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.

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).

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.
