Watches And Miracles’ On The Occasion Of The Asian Haute Horlogerie Exhibition, Baume & Mercier Celebrates Its 185th Anniversary And Hereby Announces Its Exclusive New Work: Clayton Series 18k Red Gold 1830 May Minute Timekeeping Pocket Watch.

The design of the new Clayton 1830 pocket watch is inspired by the antique works born in the 19th century of the brand. It is made of 18K red gold and highlights the long-standing high-end watchmaking skills of Baume & Mercier watches. This timepiece is a tribute to Asian culture. It symbolizes outstanding achievements in life and marks the 185th anniversary of Baume & Mercier. The connotation of this pocket watch is by no means a simple timepiece. It will pay tribute to the brand’s long tradition of watchmaking at the 2015 “Watches and Miracles” haute horlogerie exhibition with elegance and refinement.

 Baume & Mercier watch-the perfect fusion of precious heritage and modern creativity
 Since its founding in 1830, Baume & Mercier has been committed to creating a model that has stood the test of time. Adhering to the founder’s motto ‘Aestheticism, only producing the highest quality watches’, the brand draws inspiration from deep traditions and uses antique timepiece pocket watches as the model to create the first pocket watches of the Crichton series. It is a perfect combination of past and present. Unique bond.
 Just like the Asian tradition, the Clayton 1830 pocket watch has become an invaluable symbol of memory, embodying the brand’s outstanding watchmaking quality for 185 years. Like a magical amulet, this pocket watch is worthy of being passed on from generation to generation. It continues the rich heritage of the watch forever and is a tribute to the long history of the brand.

 As an example of Baume & Mercier’s extraordinary watchmaking skills, the new Clifton 1830 pocket watch faithfully reproduces the brand’s rich tradition and superior quality standards. This pocket watch was specially launched for the ‘Watches and Miracles’ Asian High-end Watch Show, with a limited edition of 30 pieces, paying tribute to the year of the brand’s birth-1830.
This timepiece will impress watchmakers and enthusiasts alike.
 Clifton’s 1830 five-minute timepiece pocket watch
 In the world of fine watchmaking, timepieces, especially minute repeater timepieces, are well-deserved masterpieces of high-level complication. Only talented master watchmakers can produce them. This new pocket watch is undoubtedly a model of precious timepieces, showing the fine watchmaking skills of Baume & Mercier for 185 years. The pocket watch is 50 mm in diameter and can be held in the palm of your hand. The 18K red gold case is polished with satin finish, with a simple shape and exquisite mechanism. The silver-white arc-shaped dial is decorated with Arabic numerals and 18K red gold studs. The hands are also made of red gold, bringing modern elegance to the whole. The exquisite case back is reminiscent of the brand’s 19th century antique pocket watches. The skeletonized movement crafted by the Baume & Mercier design studio is clearly visible under the sapphire crystal case back. The timekeeping mechanism is driven by a sheath key located at 4 o’clock, which sounds once every hour with low bass, and once every five minutes with successive bass and treble. Clifton’s 1830 five-minute timepiece pocket watch not only sounded the clock on time, but also played a unique and melodic melody like an instrument. The creativity of this timepiece is derived from the melodious sound of Stradivari. Like most top timepieces born in the early 20th century, this pocket watch is also equipped with a ‘full switch’ security mechanism: if the button on the right side of the case is not pushed to the bottom, the timekeeping mechanism will not be activated, thereby avoiding incorrect timekeeping.

 Sublime and sophisticated movement, highlighting the excellence of fine watchmaking
