Baume & Mercier Riviera 39mm Automatic Watch 10720

£3,950

For its 50th anniversary, the Riviera is back once again in 2023 with three unprecedented 39-mm versions. Each one features that distinctive dodecagonal shape with twelve sides and four screws. Each continues to convey a perennially fashionable sport-chic allure. Each one is powered by the Baumatic manufacture movement, which has demonstrated its performance since it was launched in 2017, and which may be admired through the smoked sapphire dial so symbolic of the Riviera Baumatic. The original design is still there, but the desire to adapt to our times is clear. As the latest additions to the Riviera collection, these three new 39-mm variations carry the evocative power of the original 1973 model in their DNA.

RIVIERA
Created in 1973, the Riviera watch returns this year to revive the spirit of a distinguished watchmaking era. One of the Brand’s icons, it still features the distinctive bezel and streamlined steel watchcase that have brought it such renown. Rather than a revival, the fifth generation of this legendary watch strikes the chord of an authentic renewal.

Some watches stand the test of time. The Riviera is one of those. When it was launched in 1973, Baume & Mercier chose to present a powerful, unique, different, and distinctive watch. At a time when the watchmaking industry could afford to do almost anything, the Riviera broke with traditional codes.

About Baume & Mercier

Quality

Baume & Mercier has been developing its expertise for 190 years. This expertise is based on the principle of manufacture, meaning every stage in the creation of a timepiece is controlled in-house, as is the assembly of its various components. This choice reflects the Maison’s strong principles and is a guarentee of the highest quality. This tradition of excellence at Baume & Mercier is based on the design and development of its products at the Maison's headquarters in Geneva, and on the manufacture process carried out at its manufacture in the Swiss Jura, in Les Brenets. This means that watch production is centralized in Switzerland. Baume & Mercier attracts the best talents to ensure it achieves the ultimate quality and respect for tradition; this has been the Maison’s strength since it was founded.

Design & Development

Each of our watches is a result of the passion of our master watchmakers and a desire to innovate, which is reflected in thousands of sketches, hundreds of hours of modelling, and years of development.

The skill of our design studio lies in finding the balance between artistic creativity and technical possibilities, which is the responsibility of our development engineers.

Testing

The assembled calibers and cases are submitted to the most stringent individual tests to ensure every timepiece functions according to Baume & Mercier's specifications. The mechanical watches are tested on a machine for the movement’s accuracy and power reserve. Their function controls are also tested: setting the time, jumping date, chronograph and any other complication.

The watches then undergo thermal shock testing, which highlights any hidden flaws. Every watch made at the manufacture in Les Brenets also undergoes a number of visual and aesthetic checks. Lastly, to ensure consistent and flawless quality, each finished piece undergoes a final meticulous check before being sent to one of our approved retailers.
