SIHH 2018: Baume et Mercier - Clifton Baumatic

On occasion of SIHH 2018, Baume et Mercier revealed the launch of its very first mechanical self-winding Manufacture movement – the Baumatic BM12-1975A calibre – after several years of development in close cooperation with the Manufacture Horlogère ValFleurier and the Richemont Research & Innovation teams.


Baume et Mercier has for years been thinking about developing its own mechanical movement. It was however clear right from the start that this movement would have to feature authentic advances while remaining affordable.

Baume et Mercier set ambitious goals with four main focus areas: sensitivity to magnetic fields, autonomy, chronometric precision, and durability. At the same time, by working on costs and quality as well as by rethinking production, assembly, adjustment and processes, the brand was able to bring to the market a competitively priced automatic movement that would not impact the price positioning of Baume et Mercier timepieces.


The advent of the Baumatic movement represents the Richemont Group’s first combined introduction of a silicon balance-spring and a high performance escapement.

Antimagnetic, three times lighter than the ordinary alloys used for hairspring, resistant to corrosion and less sensitive to small impacts and repeated vibrations, silicon facilitates longer maintenance service intervals for both the watch and its movement.

Requiring very little lubrication, the new high-performance escapement equipped with POWERSCAPE technology comprises an anchor and escape wheel distinguished by highly unusual geometry. Its new design based on complex shapes serves to:
• drastically reduce losses relating to friction = increase efficiency
• improve torque transmission between the components
• thus ensure 30% higher autonomy

Also developed by the Richemont Research & Innovation teams, the TWINSPIR technology is applied to a new hairspring with a composite structure, combining two cores of silicon, alternately set at a 45° angle and bound by a silicon dioxide layer that also plays a role in ensuring thermocompensation.


Combined with a newly shaped variable-inertia balance wheel, it delivers the following benefits:
• Improved accuracy of the movement various positions and over the long term
• Reduced sensitivity to magnetism
• Greater resistance to small impacts and repeated vibrations

Offering a remarkable power reserve of 5 days, the 4Hz (28,800 vph) Baumatic BM12-1975A calibre has been introduced in five new models in the Clifton collection including one COSC-certified version recognizable for the central cross in the dial.



The understated, easy-to-read dial - white or black with a porcelain-like finish - of the Clifton Baumatic features slender riveted hour-markers, slim lancet hands and an oversized date aperture at 3 o’clock. Topped with a domed sapphire crystal, the minute track - in anthracite gray or white - follows the proportioned curves of the 40 mm polished/satin-finished steel case offering water resistance to 50 metres / 165 feet. Secured with 4 screws, the transparent case back reveals the movement.


Fastening to the wrist with a pin buckle, the alligator strap is easy to change without the need for a tool, and comes in dark blue, deep black or warm brown for the two-tone version. A five-row bracelet in polished/satin-finished steel, which fastens by means of a triple folding buckle with security push-pieces, is also available.


Baume et Mercier will extend the international warranty for the Clifton Baumatic by one year after the owner registers www.baume-et-mercier.com using the form provided.

The prices of the new Baume et Mercier Clifton Baumatic are: Swiss Francs 2,300 / Euro 2,450 in steel with alligator strap, Swiss Francs 2,450 / Euro 2,600 in steel with steel bracelet, Swiss Francs 2,900 / Euro 3,100 for the two-tone model and, finally, Swiss Francs 2,450 / Euro 2,600 for the COSC-certified version matched to a black alligator strap. baume-et-mercier.com
