Baume & Mercier combines a second time zone display and power reserve in a watch that will soon be officially unveiled at SIHH 2017. It joins the Clifton collection, mostly comprised of mechanical watches that offer good value but are pricey in absolute terms, like the recent Clifton Perpetual Calendar. The new Clifton GMT Power Reserve, on the other hand, is affordably priced, with a retail of about US$3300.
The Clifton GMT Power Reserve features a second time zone sub-dial at 12 o’clock, and a power reserve display at six. It’s powered by an the automatic Soprod 9035, which is actually an ETA 2892 automatic with the addition of a complications plate made by Soprod, a builder of movements and modules.
Like the rest of the Clifton range the case is a largish 43mm and in stainless steel, with alternating brushed and polished surfaces. For now the Clifton GMT Power Reserve is only available with a dark blue, metallic finish dial.
Price and availability
The Clifton GMT Power Reserve (ref. M0A10316) will be available starting April 2017, priced at SFr3400. That’s about US$3340.
