Baume & Mercier Heads For The Med
A stunning and elevated addition to the marque’s famed Riviera collection— perfect for the everyday traveller.
Ignore the well-worn principle that good things come in three – Baume & Mercier has proved it wrong with a striking brace of newcomers. An extension to the marque’s rightly famed Riviera Collection – born in 1973 – the incoming Riviera GMT Travel Time collection boasts two stunning arrivals. The Riviera GMT (M0A10659) launches out of the blocks with a powerful play of colour and aesthetics – the 42mm blue dial effort a match for the offered blue rubber strap. Its sibling (Riviera GMT M0A10658) means a robust and equally appealing piece of engineering, its silver dial (also detailed in a sophisticated ‘wave’ pattern) that is paired seamlessly to a steel bracelet.
Both are driven by a Swiss Made Automatic ETA 2893, as viewed via the sapphire caseback, with water resistance to 100m (10BAR) and a power reserve of 42 hours. Find further practicality via Baume & Mercier’s ‘Fast Strap’ interchangeability system — no tools needed.
Both models offer a sense of modern refinement that plays to the everyday – better still, both drive a sense of adventure as seen via the presence of an alluring and contrasting red GMT hand. As expected, this revolves every 24hrs, with subtle 24-hour markers sat around the dial edge at intervals between the 12 indices and the Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock – enabling an easy and accessible dual time play for those needing to distinguish between multiple time zones.
We think that alone makes this the perfect accompaniment for any pending and stylish European summer sojourn – be it Greece or, as the name suggests, time spent soaking in the sun and ambiance of southern France
Available in May, from $4,700 Baume et Mercier
