Baume & Mercier novelties 2024

The "Watches & Wonders" Geneva takes place from 09.04-15.04.2024. We give you an overview of the exciting new products from our brand partners.

The RIVIERA M0A10721 model: The RIVIERA SQUELETTE pays tribute to the streamlined architecture of the modern villas on the Riviera

07:00 a.m. - As the sun comes up over the Riviera, a special timepiece comes to life. This watch is a masterpiece of modern design inspired by the minimalist lines and bold shapes of the villas that cling to this rock sculpted by the Mediterranean elements. It is a tribute to the passion of Baume & Mercier for the beauty and elegance of simplicity: an ode to the savoir-faire of a brand that has excelled in combining form and function since it was founded. The one who wears this complex timepiece may admire the geartrains and cogwheels at their leisure, as exquisite watchmaking craftsmanship is expressed through the skeleton movement. As it makes its way through these picturesque little lanes, it draws the eye and echoes the region’s chic, cosmopolitan, contemporary atmosphere. When night falls and the cityscape begins to sparkle in the background, it continues to keep the pace, a reminder of the eternal fusion of art and technology that is inherent to the Riviera.

The Riviera Squelette reveals its openworked mechanism in a satin-polished stainless steel dodecagonal case measuring 42 mm in diameter and 11.1 mm in thickness. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on both sides reveals its every detail. Fastened by four screws in sandblasted ADLC-coated steel, the bezel glows in polished and sun-satin stainless steel. A black bezel ring in anodized aluminum visually connects the bezel and caseband. The caseback, also twelve-sided and fastened with four screws, is protected by a sapphire crystal and may be engraved. The free octagonal crown is adorned with the Phi logo that Baume & Mercier chose as an emblem in 1964, embossed and delineated in black.

The RIVIERA M0A10761 model: The RIVIERA MARÉOGRAPHE is dedicated to the ocean and the passion of the open sea

10:00 a.m. - As the morning waves lap the coast of the Riviera, a tide watch is set into movement. Its high-contrast blue design mirrors the ocean, while its tide-measurement abilities reflect the sailing spirit of the region. The one who wears this watch drops anchor to better admire the sea, Riviera on the wrist. As the breakers roll past, the timepiece provides insight in the form of precise measurements which demonstrate the watchmaker’s savoir-faire. As the open sea takes on the purple hues of the setting sun, the Riviera continues to tell the time, relentlessly expressing the emotion and power that emanate from the water. It cruises along, an unfailing symbol of the connection between man and nature: a constant reminder of how important it is to love and respect the natural world around us.

Available in a limited edition of just 500, the Riviera Maréographe follows the ebb and flow of the tides in a satin-polished stainless steel dodecagonal case measuring 43 mm in diameter and 12.3 mm in thickness. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on both sides protects it. The polished and sun-satin stainless steel bezel is fastened with four polished steel screws in sandblasted ADLC-coated steel. The dodecagonal case back is fastened with four screws and may be customized with your choice of engraving. It also bears a special engraving, “Special Edition One Out of 500.” The octagonal crown is screwed in and decorated with the brand’s emblem, the Phi logo, embossed and delineated in black. The push-button at 4 o’clock makes it possible to adjust the tide disk.  

The RIVIERA M0A10769 model: The RIVIERA ACIER-TITANE symbolizes stone and pays tribute to color and texture

2:00 p.m. - As the sun warms the peaks of the Riviera with its glow, a sturdy timepiece equipped with a steel case and a titanium bezel comes into view. It reflects the mineral solidity of the region, built on a stone that imparts subtly nuanced hues even as the blue dial reflects the depth of the sea. The dial echoes the legendary azure blue of this location, taking on its characteristics through the expertise of the watchmaker who designed it after spending years perfecting the art of combining form and function. The piece appears to have been created specifically for this precise moment, this special place. At nightfall, as it gracefully and lightheartedly keeps the passing time, it embodies the fleeting moments that make life so precious.

This version of the Riviera features a dodecagonal case with a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of 10.6 mm. Its exquisite craftsmanship intensifies its luminosity, showcasing its graphic color contrasts and precise time indications. In this bicolor version – a recent addition to the collection –, the Riviera subtly combines titanium with gray PVD, asserting a proud appearance. This use of steel guarantees that the piece is lightweight, durable, and resistant, particularly with regard to corrosion. The case of this new timepiece is crafted in sandblasted steel with a blue PVD treatment. It is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated on both sides with an anti-glare coating. The sandblasted titanium bezel with a gray PVD treatment is fastened with four steel screws in sandblasted ADLC-coated steel. A gold-tone PVD steel ring links the bezel with the caseband. The dodecagonal case back is crafted in sandblasted ADLC-coated steel and topped with a sapphire crystal. It is fastened with four screws and may be engraved. The free octagonal crown is also made of sandblasted ADLC-coated steel. The embossed gold-tone Phi logo glows in its center.

The RIVIERA M0A10787 model: The RIVIERA GOLD, the quintessence of chic

7:00 p.m. - Just as the sun sets over the Riviera, a timepiece featuring a 750/1000 rose gold case comes to life. The quintessence of chic, this watch asserts all the beauty and opulence of the region’s carefree lifestyle. Gold radiates through the fading light, as the saturated daytime colors of the villas on the horizon dissolve into ethereal nighttime glimmers. In one of the more exclusive spots, hidden from view like a well-kept secret where music and laughter herald the evening, resonating in a playful atmosphere, someone – perhaps a woman, perhaps a man – is proudly wearing this watch. The fine materials of the Riviera Gold make it a symbol of success and a taste for everything that is beautiful and precious. Comparable to the durable heritage of the Riviera, it carries forth the timeless appeal of artistic craftsmanship that turns time into an eternal gem. 

The Riviera Gold features a satin-polished rose gold (750/1000) dodecagonal case topped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated on both sides with an anti-glare coating. Its proportions show the perfect balance that Baume & Mercier always seeks: 39 mm in diameter and 9.6 mm in thickness. The sophistication of the polished and sun-satin rose gold (750/1000) bezel – fastened with four rose gold (750/1000) screws – extends to its free octagonal crown, also crafted in rose gold (750/1000) and adorned with the embossed black-lined brand emblem, the Phi logo. The dodecagonal case back, protected by a sapphire crystal, is also fastened with four screws and may be engraved.

The RIVIERA M0A10765 model: The RIVIERA DIAMANTS sparkles with the splendor of nights on the French Riviera

7:00 p.m. - The night has slowly begun to cloak the Riviera with its enchanting, scintillating veil, setting the scene for festive galas and cocktails. A diamond-studded watch keeps the pace with this thrilling time. It reflects the splendor of the precious stones that sparkle in the famous high-society parties of the region; the magnetism of the timeless chic that the brand’s designers demonstrate with verve and that the artistic craftsmen shape with patience and care. The same captivation with luxury and elegance spreads from one celebration to the next. The woman who wears this precious timepiece is electric with emotion, filled with the beauty of creation and life, wild for this eternal Riviera.

The Riviera Diamants has a fascinatingly precious silhouette with 33 mm of diameter and 9.5 mm of thickness. It flatters the polished satin-finished stainless steel case which is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated with an anti-glare coating on both sides. Its polished and sun-satin stainless steel bezel is set with 44 brilliant-cut diamonds (Top Wesselton, VS quality, 0.47 carats) and fastened by four polished stainless steel screws. The solid dodecagonal case back may be engraved. The free octagonal crown is embossed with a Phi logo. 

The RIVIERA M0A10786 model: The RIVIERA CALENDRIER PERPÉTUEL seeks to penetrate the mysteries of the universe and of technology

11:00 p.m. - Stars now scatter across the night sky as the moon illuminates the rippling landscape of the Riviera. This timepiece, featuring a perpetual calendar function, shines in the watchmaking firmament. It is a masterpiece of precision engineering and a marvel of modern technology capable of displaying not only hours, minutes and seconds, but also the day, month, and year – taking into account leap years – and the moon’s phases. Beyond telling the time, this watch illustrates the eternal beauty and majesty of the skies and the passage of time. It follows their pace through complex movements and precise calculations. The individual wearing this timepiece feels profoundly united with the universe and is fascinated by the infinite possibilities that they perceive within it. This watch is a reminder of the importance of understanding and appreciating its mysteries through the extraordinary connections between man and nature.

The Riviera pulls out all the stops in this version with a perpetual calendar. The manufacture complication – which is a signature of Baume & Mercier and a regular fixture in the Clifton model – was introduced into the Riviera collection in 2023 for its 50th anniversary with a 40 mm steel model produced in a limited edition of just 50 watches. Based on the shining success of that edition, the watchmaking expertise of this iconic watch is further reinforced this year. The technical achievement is encapsulated in a dodecagonal case with a diameter of 40 mm and a thickness of just 11.8 mm. The polished satin-finished stainless steel case is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-glare coating on both sides. Fastened by four screws, the bezel is crafted in polished satin-finished stainless steel. The dodecagonal case back is covered with a sapphire crystal and fastened with four steel screws. The free octagonal crown is wreathed in a black outline. The brand’s emblem, the Phi logo, appears at the center.


Since it was first created, Baume & Mercier’s Classima Collection has attracted countless admirers. It carries the reassuring and traditional Swiss watchmaking values of discipline and endurance. The rounded elegance of its case is enchanting. Its discreet, understated allure makes it easy to wear. The various colors and materials that adorn its many versions demonstrate its profuse creativity. Its capacity for integrating and combining everyday watch complications makes it irresistible. Its advantages and appeal make it an ideal mechanical Swiss watch to own or gift. 

The three new Classima models that Baume & Mercier is revealing at Watches & Wonders are an extension of this fabulous destiny. These watches express everyday elegance for modern men on the move. Each asserts a different color, expanding the existing chromatic range. They collectively mark the return of the chronograph to the collection, one of the Brand’s best-sellers that stands out for the originality of its push-pieces, in keeping with the designer spirit of Baume & Mercier.


Two new timepieces dedicated to the moon’s phases join the Clifton Collection by Baume & Mercier to the delight of all those who love celestial complications. Their refined design, understated luxury, and flawless functionality perfectly illustrate the brand philosophy. The combination of Paul Mercier’s artistic creativity and William Baume’s technical expertise resonates down through the lineage of watches that stretches back nearly 200 years. This balance of style and watchmaking savoir-faire is expressed once again through the restrained elegance of these two pieces and the particularly efficient Baumatic manufacture movement that drives them. Both their aesthetic and technical qualities, so tangible on a daily basis, make the Clifton M0A10756 and Clifton M0A10758 easy, reliable watches to wear every day.
