The highlight for Baume & Mercier at SIHH was the launch of their new Clifton collection. The collection consists of 7 variations, all housed in polished and satin-finished double-beveled cases. The Clifton 18K Red Gold (shown above) 39 mm, Clifton Complete Calendar (shown below) 41 mm, and Clifton Small Seconds 43 mm. A variety of sun satin-finished dials is available depending on the model.

The automatic versions come with either small seconds or a central sweeping seconds hand (shown above). There is also a manually wound moonphase model (shown below), powered by a La Joux-Perret 7318 and housed in a 42 mm case. Retail prices are $2,700 to $6,300.
