The Watch Gallery is very excited to announce the UK exclusive launch of the new Baume & Mercier Clifton collection. Inspired by the fifties, Baume & Mercier delved into its archives to design this stunning new collection, with classic-looking simple, clean dials and a distinctly vintage feel.
We interviewed Baume & Mercier designer Sara Josephine Sandmeier at this year's international luxury watch event SIHH in Geneva, to discover more about what went into designing the new Clifton range.
"The Clifton Collection harks back to the Golden Age of watchmaking..."
Sara Josephine Sandmeier, Baume & Mercier Designer
Sara said: "Baume & Mercier always starts a new collection with the inspiration of a museum piece. This year it was a watch from the golden fifties, a high period for watchmaking." Characterisitic to many pieces in the new Clifton collection, Sara explained, is the slim style case, satin polish finish, dome-shaped glass dial, open case back and either a hand wound mechanical or automatic movement which sits on a stylish alligator strap, very similar to the look and finish of a fifties watch. Sara focuses on the 18-carat Rose Gold M0A10058 when explaining the feel of the collection.
