The spotlight shines on the “Riviera” in this year’s collection from Baume & Mercier
First launched in 1973, the elegant “Riviera” sports watch now arrives in its fifth generation. Available in many different styles and sizes for men and women, the new model again boasts a sporty steel case, a dial with wavy decorations and a characteristic dodecagonal bezel. With variously colored dials and a choice of either a self-winding mechanical caliber or a quartz movement, this line offers the right watch for every wrist.
The technical flagship is the “Riviera Baumatic 42mm.” It encases the latest version of the top-of-the-line “Baumatic” caliber, which first debuted in the Clifton. This movement’s advantages include a five-day power reserve, accurate timekeeping that loses no more than four nor gains more than six seconds per day, and robust protection against magnetic fields up to an intensity of 1,500 gauss. Aficionados of high-mech timepieces will be delighted to know that the self-winding manufacture movement is visible through the dial, which is made of transparent gray or blue sapphire crystal. Other 42-mm-diameter references with the Swiss automatic movement are equipped with green, azure, silver or black dials and are worn with either a stainless steel or rubber bracelet.
The ladies’ version of the “Riviera” are 36 mm in diameter and likewise available with azure blue, green, silver or black dials. A Swiss quartz movement powers each of these watches. Baume & Mercier also offers a self-winding model for women who prefer mechanical wristwatches. Three automatic chronographs, each with a diameter of 43 millimeters, complete the collection.
