Baume & Mercier: Baumatic models with an in-house movement
The new Baumatic watches from Baume & Mercier are now in stock. Baume & Mercier has taken a fresh, in-depth look at mechanical watches in order to improve their performance and make them available to as many people as possible. The result: Baume & Mercier has achieved this ultimate luxury with the Clifton Baumatic, offering an array of outstanding characteristics that raise the bar in watchmaking. It’s a must-have!
This expertly manufactured movement, visible through the case back and assembled in the traditional manner, features several innovative components that increase its power reserve, accuracy and reliability. The 120-hour (five-day) power reserve is achieved thanks to the optimized alloy used for the barrel, the escapement with Powerscape™ technology, and the Twinspir™ silicon hairspring. These same elements help ensure an accuracy of between four seconds slow and six seconds fast per day.
Thanks to the greatly improved reliability, maintenance services become less frequent. This is achieved by using new types of oils that can withstand major variations in temperature. It is also achieved by the use of parts that are not sensitive to powerful magnetic fields (1,500 Gauss), meaning the watch will withstand radiation at levels 25 times higher than traditional instruments.
