Hands-On with the Baume & Mercier Clifton Retrograde

Baume & Mercier added a new chronograph, and even a tourbillon model to their Clifton collection this year at SIHH, but it was the new Clifton Retrograde model that caught our eye the most. The polished rose gold hour markers; as well as hour, minute and second hands — on a sun satin-finish silver dial — is really attractive. Furthermore, the blued hands of the subsidiary day, date and power reserve indications, add to the overall good aesthetics while also helping to differentiate from the primary time indications.
