There are some great men’s watches out there on the market, but this new Clifton collection from Baume & Mercier feels as good as it looks, and is extremely impressive thanks to its amazing retail price range. Inspired by a 1950’s vintage timepiece, the clean, crisp dial of the Clifton offers a contemporary interpretation of the classic round retro watch.
The Clifton collection includes two 41mm watches that house automatic movements and one special 42mm model in 18-karat rose gold that is an absolute standout piece. These watches must be seen, felt, and tried-on—but be warned—once on the wrist, you won’t want to take it off. The collection will retail from $2,700 to $6,300, and is expected to be in stores in April 2013.
