Hands-On While using Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar (10280)When the Clifton was introduced by Baume & Mercier's CEO Alain Zimmermann in Geneva, he introduced becoming a watch inside the sounding affordable luxury. In the past, the Clifton series started below 3000 Euro for the best basic version. Afterwards, complications (including a tourbillon) were added. Today, we look into the Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar. A watch that does not exactly belong to the affordable luxury category, but offers a and also useful complication.Clifton Chronograph Complete CalendarLast year, we reviewed the Clifton Complete Calendar, a watch offering day, date, month and moon phase indicators. This Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar added, you've guessed it already, a chronograph complication. Besides a calendar, a very useful - and popular - complication.Checking out the dial in this Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar you can already know the movement that's inside, due to its typical lay-out. Yes, it can be in accordance with the ETA/Valjoux 7751 movement. A chronograph and calendar movement which has a solid reputation. Furthermore, it gives a Around the clock indicator.Two ToneThe watch we out of Baume & Mercier for this review could be the reference 10280, a two-tone kind of the Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar. The 18 carat red gold bezel isn't very prominent, til you have the watch in light from the sun or perhaps a place with plenty of light. You will recognize that the red gold bezel matches nicely using the dauphin hands and applied hour markers. Interesting to make note of is the fact that just the bezel is in gold, all of those other watch consists of stainless. Normally, with bi-color replica watches you'll discover the crown and/or pushers and maintain gold. It is a bit like the Rolex Datejust 16234 as well as variations, the place that the fluted bezel is manufactured out of gold where-as the remainder is constructed of stainless steel.Inspired By Vintage ModelsThe Clifton series is inspired by Baume & Mercier's heritage models, as was told for me during its introduction. It isn't really clear which models exactly inspired the Clifton, or that it is mixture of several models and fashions in their 1950s collections. The shape of the case is without a doubt something reminds me of these elegant 1950s replica watches, with those curved lugs, round shapes, dauphin hands and applied hour markers. Also the flat winding crown looks 1950s. It is deemed an era that's preferred among many watch collectors, plus an era that brought us many great designs from Longines, Omega, IWC, Rolex and the like. The strange thing is always that I could name a few 1950s replica watches from those as well as other brands, however have to admit i always don't find - any - vintage Baume & Mercier models from that period. Investigating some offers on Chrono24, I encounter approx 16 Baume & Mercier models from your 1950s. And the like, that one, that indeed shows a fascinating being similar to the case form of the Clifton.Not simply the contour on the case, and also the rectangular pushers and flat crown are interesting design features that any of us see on the new Baume & Mercier Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar watch. Whatever the case, an incredibly handsome 35mm diameter watch with manual winding movement and two-register chronograph.Modern FeaturesHowever, we're also considering a modern watch here, with a 43mm case plus the typical Valjoux 7751 lay-out. Although I am aware the truth that Baume & Mercier wants to use those off-the-shelf movements, furthermore, it shows that there exists less room for creativity around the dial. You will notice similar dials off their brands, so the only room for the children left to learn with, will be the hands, numerals, indexes and colors on the dial. Buyers ., Baume & Mercier did a great job at this, considering the boundaries they have to use. However, should the given 'design parameters' of the movement wasn't something that they had to look at, how awesome do you find it undertake a two register chronograph with a Clifton for example? Or, regarding the full calendar, a four register lay-out like those old Universal Geneve models? Or something like that like Baume & Mercier's own 1950s triple-date replica watches, in line with the Valjoux 72 movement.Affordable LuxuryOf course, to hold the Baume & Mercier Clifton somewhat in the affordable luxury price category, you'll find boundaries using what they are able to do. Using the Valjoux 7751 is not a bad choice, since it delivers all necessary complications and has been shown to be very reliable throughout the years. This movement was based on the chronograph-only version, the famous 7750. Whilst the free winding direction bothers me a bit with your movements, making a wobble that's very 'present' around the wrist, it's really a good performer then one without issues cheap replica watches . A list expense of 5450 Euro makes me ponder whether the 'affordable luxury' tag still is applicable though. Due to this style of money, you are doing get yourself a nice watch with a lot of mechanical complications though. The all stainless-steel version (reference 10278) retails for 650 Euro less, which perhaps ensure it is more interesting for all those searching for replica watches around 5000 Euro. It may not be the lowest priced Valjoux 7751 powered watch around, but there is however more about a watch than its movement obviously.On the WristThe Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar having its 43mm diameter wears very nicely first off. It features a much more 'expensive' appeal than it actually costs. Several people asked me concerning the watch when I was putting it on. Interesting enough, those that are not specifically watch enthusiasts were surprised at its cost reason having a positive way, where some fellow enthusiasts / collectors think it is a lttle bit overpriced. I believe, the Baume & Mercier targets folks that just obtain a good watch using their Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar. It isn't targeted at collectors or die-hard watch fans in my view. In that regard, Baume & Mercier indeed has the ability to offer interesting pieces within the affordable luxury category to those who only want to wear a good and cute timepiece.The watch, due to the shape, wears very comfortably about the wrist and, equally important, it is extremely readable the dial. Hands are nicely polished and present an excellent contrast with the silver(ed) dial. True has polished and satin finished surfaces, that offer a great contrast. The case and dial play very nicely with light. The 18 carat red gold bezel adds a little punch going without running shoes, but to be truthful, I could do without.To control the watch there's not much you can do wrong. Know that setting the calendar and moon phases (by crown and also the special pusher within the left side from the tag heuer replica case) mustn't be done between peak times (9:00pm about three:00am) and you will be fine.Strap and claspPart from the wearing experience are the strap and clasp. Many brands pay too little care about it, creating a lousy looking strap or perhaps an uncomfortable one. The alligator strap is rather nicely done, less than stiff (a lot of them are, and then soften somewhat after extensive wear) together with beautiful scales and never too padded. Baume & Mercier just received it right. The clasp is not hard make use of and comfy on the wrist. Essentially for the image above, the clasp incorporates a combination of polished and brushed surfaces replica watch winder for breitling . The Baume & Mercier logo continues to be engraved in the clasp.Some ThoughtsThe Clifton is just one of those collections that I followed a little over the years. I became very happy to notice that Baume & Mercier developed it in 2013, to have an affordable price. Now that they introduced more variations, I wonder the actual way it performs available on the market. Eventually, it all has to do with price (besides the fact whether a watch appeal to the masses, or otherwise not). The Clifton is certainly a nice-looking watch, with clear inspirations from past models. 5450 Euro is a pretty little money, even for a watch with such complications, though the watch looks good and contains an excellent finish. The dial will be the typical 7751 lay-out, however the applied rose gold colored markers and polished hands have become nicely done. replica rolex online shop watches If you're searching for any good watch for any day wear and want to have got a full calendar and chronograph, the Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar is an interesting candidate. Just be sure you really feel happy with the 43mm diameter case and regardless of whether you wish to have it in stainless-steel or perhaps two-tone. The stainless version can also be had having a steel bracelet.More info via Baume & Mercier on-line.
