Baume & Mercier Present A New Riviera Chronograph In Step With The Times

Baume & Mercier

Baume & Mercier give us the perfect chronograph for all occasions

First released in 1973 and recently reinterpreted, the Riviera watch expresses the Brand’s design expertise and its exquisite use of materials. A Baume & Mercier lifestyle icon, this timepiece offers pure, slender lines and an immediately recognizable twelve-sided bezel, which asserts its full maturity. It is now available in a 43-mm sport-chic chronograph version in a bicolor mode with a totally stealthy look.Baume & Mercier

Back To Basics

The Riviera has been keeping pace with the times for more than 50 years. Inspired by the carefree lifestyle of the French Riviera, this is the watch of casual elegance symbolizing an easygoing view of refined watchmaking.

Moreover, it was first developed in 1973 and has adapted to every era, year after year, while staying true to its own special style. Its steel adornments and strong shape have always represented a form of freedom and an offbeat elegance. And now it represents renewal.Baume & Mercier

Self Winding Chronograph

Certain watches are better than others in taking on board the genetic codes of a collection and the stylistic markers of a brand. The latest self-winding Riviera chronograph is unquestionably one of those.

In addition, its slate-gray hue is sun-satin, featuring a gray flange and carved-and-snailed auxiliary counters that create an impression of very deep relief. The perfectly proportioned, skeletonized gold-tone hands are coated with white Superluminova (blue glow), echoing the gold-tone ring that subtly appears between the bezel and the caseband.Baume & Mercier

Five Legendary Generations Later

This is the story of an illustrious watch: one like none other, one that has always been ahead of its time. The Riviera has been redesigned several times through the years, not only keeping up- to-date but truly setting the pace.

Since its debut 50 years ago, the Riviera immediately made a splash with its dodecagonal case and its slimline metal strap. It was already avant-gardist, though the Riviera name had yet to appear on the dial. In 1975, the concept was updated and made available with both self-winding and quartz movements: small, medium and large models were produced in steel, gold/steel, and solid gold.Baume & Mercier
