The Christmas holidays are the perfect time to show our close ones that we appreciate them and we all want to see their smiles. The best present for that is something that not only looks fancy but also is practical. Alas, our everyday lives are rather busy and choosing such a present at the last moment can be complicated. Based on our experience, we know that there is one present that remains a classic - the watch. And since making a compromise on quality is not an option, we put our faith once again in The Baume & Mercier because their watches are not only a symbol of prestige and class but also quality of the highest level.

We give you two options for a present: for Him and for Her.

For Him: 

The Clifton Baumatic is the essential accessory for men with a passion for style and sophistication. The immaculate white dial offers an understated, easy-to-read display. It features slender riveted hour-markers, slim lancet hands and an oversized date aperture at 3 o’clock. Topped with a domed sapphire crystal, the anthracite gray minute track follows the ideally proportioned curves of the 40 mm two-tone polished/satin-finished case. Water-resistant to 50 meters, the timepiece has a transparent case back that reveals the new Baumatic BM12-1975A calibre, the first mechanical self-winding movement developed in-house, in collaboration with the Richemont group. The watch is mounted on a brown alligator strap that fastens with a pin buckle.

The Clifton Baumatic achieves a remarkable accuracy during the five days of its power reserve and boasts resistance to magnetic fields that is 25 times greater than the current ISO standard. Lastly, thanks to the quality of the oils used to lubricate the movement, maintenance services are not required as frequently as the five-year intervals generally prescribed.

For Her:

The Classima mother-of-pearl diamond dial is adorned with eight diamond hour-markers. The radiant dial features traditional roman numerals, a date aperture at 3 o’clock and rhodium-plated hour and minute hands. The brilliant gems stand out against the sleek finish of the dial. Powered by a quartz movement, the Classima with mother-of-pearl diamond dial is mounted on a five-row steel bracelet featuring a triple folding clasp with security push-pieces. This beautiful watch, 31 mm in diameter with a resolutely timeless style, delicately complements the wrists of strong, confident women.
