A luxury watch providing the optimum time-keeping experience for every man is Baume & Mercier‘s Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar. It is a revelling of the present, and the revealing of the future, right on one’s own wrist. The handsomely-clad watch is powered by two powerful complications: a chronograph and a complete calendar, featuring moon phase, day and month indicator, and a 24-hour clock.

Under the 12 o’clock position is the calendar, explicitly noting the present date in a round aperture. Below it, just above the 6 o’clock, is the moon phase function, which highlights a moving moon that rotates in each lunar month. The chronograph function is recorded by the blue steel hands.

Charmingly masculine, the Clifton Chronograph Complete Calendar is designed with timeless aesthetics that will never go out of style. The 43-mm case showcases all functions at one glance, each nestled in the silvery satin dial accentuated with gold Arabic numerals and hands. At the back, one can see the beautiful movement showcased through the sapphire crystal back-case, engraved with Côtes de Genève pattern—the brand’s favourite adornment. Little details, such as the matte steel-finish and splashes of blue tones, indulges more of the watch’s gentlemanly appeal.

Simple, elegant, yet highly ergonomic, this timepiece is definitely a keeper. Powered by an exclusive Calibre Valjoux 7751 automatic movement and a visually-enthralling weight oscillation, anyone will be proud to showcase this piece of haute horlogerie. Add to that a few more exciting virtues: this watch comes with a power reserve of 48 hours and can stand up to approximately 50m under water.
