There is no need to manually adjust the date before March 1, 2100 (2100 is a non-leap year).
Simple and refined design
The Crichton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar watch is striking with its modern and timeless design. Its ‘warm white’ ceramic dial is paired with sharp faceted rivet-type engravings and three gold-plated hands indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds. The dial is equipped with three small dials that display the perpetual calendar function: the subdial at 9 o’clock displays the day, the subdial at 12 o’clock displays the month and leap year cycle, and the small dial at 3 o’clock displays the date. The blue steel hands on the small dial make the perpetual calendar function more prominent, while the disk showing the moon phase is set at 6 o’clock in a balanced manner. To ensure the best legibility, the dial is equipped with a rounded sapphire crystal with anti-glare treatment.
The Crichton Baumatic Perpetual Calendar has a 42 mm diameter, polished / satin-finished 18K red gold case with a thickness of only 12.1 mm. The sapphire crystal case back allows the movement to be delicately polished by hand: the plywood is decorated with circular patterns, while the chassis is sandblasted and snail-shaped. The skeletonized gold-plated oscillating weight is decorated with a Geneva pattern combined with a snail pattern. In the center of the exquisite movement, the suspension reed is presented in the form of the brand symbol Phi, with the distinguished symbol of the Baume & Mercier to highlight the brand’s pursuit of perfection.
In order to make wearing more comfortable, Baume & Mercier chose a black alligator leather strap for the curved lugs of the Clayton Baumatic perpetual calendar watch, with an 18K red gold pin buckle. This self-replaceable strap allows the wearer to change the strap as desired.
