The Baume & Mercier Clifton Moon-Phase Date

For a watch clearly positioned as something quite cosmopolitan in overall design, I happen to think it to be far more versatile than that. The dial is a stark white, which the brand says is done in a porcelain-like finish. The complications are confined to the six o’clock portion of the dial in a very austere and visually pleasing configuration. Punches of blue and white from the moon phase and date display bring a welcome pop of color to an otherwise colorless palate. While the watch itself is only offered in steel, it is outfitted in two variations: leather strap or steel bracelet. Both iterations of the watch are winners, but the bracelet gives this watch a sporty aspect almost evocative of a Rolex Oyster Perpetual – minus the complications of course… More here.

On looks alone this watch stood out to me within the past weekends releases. Decent price as well.
