Dynamic energy, business commute, this casual sports watch is really versatile

Everyone knows the popularity of sports watches in recent years, and many friends around me have bought sports watches. The advantages of the sports watch are very clear, stylish, dynamic, wear-resistant, and highly playable, but it is inevitably somewhat impractical for players who usually have to go to work and occasionally see customers. Two days ago, a friend asked me if there is any kind of watch that has the ruggedness of a sports watch and an exquisite watch that has a formal dress. We happened to see such a watch in Shenzhen Longhua Yifang City, namely the Baume & Mercier’s new Riviera. Watch series, I want to share with you.

The Riviera series was born in 1973, and has a long-standing reputation for its unique and outstanding bezel, simple and powerful line design and angular dodecagonal bezel. The fifth-generation Riviera launched this year is the inheritance and innovation of the prototype watch, symbolizing the rebirth of the famous Riviera series.

Baume & Mercier has a huge sales network around the world, and it is very accurate in grasping the needs of consumers. This year’s new Riviera series has launched a variety of styles, and divided them into regular and flagship versions. The most representative model is the blue disc flagship watch. Our eyes are caught by it as soon as we enter the store. Attracted.

In our impression, the size of the sports watch is larger and thicker, and the thickness of this watch is only 10.7 mm, which is very competitive among casual sports watches. In the shop, we specially put on a suit and shirt and wore this watch. The watch can be put in the cuffs, revealing a gentleman-like case slightly.

From the front, you can appreciate the iconic twelve-sided bezel of the Riviera series, which corresponds to the twelve hour markers on the dial, demonstrating the high professional level of Baume & Mercier’s creation of styling watches. The dial has a diameter of 42 mm, which is a regular size, which can be controlled well for most people. There is a date display window at 3 o’clock, which is convenient for commuting.

The blue smoked sapphire dial adopts a translucent texture, and the wearer can see through the operation of the BAUMATIC movement. The “5 DAYS” on the dial means that the movement on the watch can provide up to 5 days of dynamic storage, which shows that the movement can be stored for up to 5 days. The brand’s confidence in its own technology. The mountain and sea ornamentation in the center is the original ornamentation created by the brand for the fifth generation Riviera, symbolizing the encounter between the mountains and the ocean, echoing the inspiration of the watch from Riviera on the French Riviera.

Matched with the blue dial are silver rivet-style Roman numeral hour markers and multi-faceted rhodium-plated hands. The top is also covered with a luminous coating, which can read the time clearly whether it is day or night.

Baume’s homemade BAUMATIC movement was a great success in the Creighton series, and this year it was used on the flagship Riviera series of watches. In addition to the five-day dynamic storage, this movement also has a timekeeping accuracy of only -4/+6 seconds per day and a diamagnetic ability that can resist at least 1500 Gauss, which can effectively protect the watch from daily magnetic fields. For a watch with a public price of 27,800 yuan, this kind of performance is really valuable, and it also proves the high cost performance of the Baume & Mercier watch from the side.

This watch is equipped with an integrated three-row stainless steel bracelet, which is polished and satin-finished to present a unique texture. If you like a more sporty watch, you can also consider the Riviera with black tape.

Baume & Mercier’s Fast Strap quick-release strap replacement system must be heard by everyone. It is simple and convenient to replace the strap without tools.

Summary: As the iconic watch series of Baume & Mercier, the Riviera series have crossed the ages and lasted for a long time. While continuing the classic design of the prototype watch, the fifth-generation Riviera series watch blends into the modern trend, providing us with a timepiece with the characteristics of the times.
