Hands-on Review: Baume et Mercier Clifton Baumatic Blue Dial 10467

Baume et Mercier Clifton Baumatic Blue Dial ref. 10467

Since its launch at the beginning of 2018, the Clifton Baumatic by Baume et Mercier has caught our attention for its well balanced design and remarkable performances, guaranteed by a new in-house developed and produced automatic movement.

The collection expanded in 2019 with new models, including an amazing chronometer-certified version with a blue-to-black dial that we recently tested for several days.

We can immediately say that the Baume et Mercier Clifton Baumatic Blue Dial reference 10467 really impressed us. If you are considering to buy a classy and versatile three-hand watch that can be worn in almost any daily situation, with the possibility to match it to either a leather strap or a metal bracelet, we believe that this timepiece offers one of the very best price/quality ratio on the market.

The Clifton Baumatic comes in a stainless steel round case with a diameter of 40 mm, ideal for most wrist sizes. It is just 11.1 mm thick, so that it will easily slip under your cuff-links, and it offers water resistance to 50 metres / 165 feet.

Case and bezel are polished with part of the flanks satin-brushed, a detail that emphasises the refined lines, beautifully connecting at the end of the curved lugs.

The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal is slightly domed to better harmonise with the bezel. Its anti-glare treatment improves the legibility of the attractive blue-to-black gradated sunburst dial featuring a white minute track and rhodium-plated faceted hands and applied indices. An oversized date aperture at 3 o’clock - we love the font - completes the dial indications.

The white crosshair appearing on the dial adds a stylish touch to the ensemble while remarking that this model is powered by a movement certified as a chronometer (daily rate of −4/+6 sec) by the COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute.

Visible through a transparent case back secured with 4 screws, the self-winding BM13 Calibre beats at a frequency of 4Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and offers a remarkable power reserve of 5 days or 120 hours.

With this calibre, Baume et Mercier was able to create a movement that features authentic advances in terms of magnetic fields, autonomy, chronometric precision, and durability while remaining affordable.

Its silicon balance-spring is antimagnetic, three times lighter than the ordinary alloys used for hairspring, resistant to corrosion and less sensitive to small impacts and repeated vibrations.

Moreover, the high-performance escapement was designed with an unusual geometry to reduce losses relating to friction and improving the torque transmission between the components, thus ensuring a 30% higher autonomy.

The improved performances facilitate longer maintenance service intervals for both the watch and its movement.

The entire movement and its oscillating weight are aesthetically enhanced by "Côtes de Genève" and snailed decors.

Fastening to the wrist with a triple folding buckle with security push-pieces, the black alligator strap is easy to change without the need for a tool. A five-row bracelet in polished/satin-finished steel with a triple folding buckle, is also available.

The Baume et Mercier Clifton Baumatic Blue Dial with COSC certification has a price of
Euro 2,800 with alligator leather strap (ref. 10467) or Euro 2,950 with steel bracelet (ref. 10468).

This wristwatch combines a highly attractive design, one that makes everyone agree, to excellent performances and a truly competitive price point. Highly recommended. baume-et-mercier.com
