VIDEO: Unboxing the Baume & Mercier Clifton 1830 five-minute repeater pocket watch

Every year Baume & Mercier release an emblematic limited edition that speaks to the brand’s 185-year history and legacy. This year, they’re celebrating with something unusual – a beautiful and complicated pocket watch. This red gold Clifton 1830 features an unusual five-minute repeater, which strikes the time to the nearest five minutes when you operate the slide at five o’clock. The prettily finished movement is powered by a Dubois Depraz module, which is shown off behind the sapphire caseback.

Pocket watches, more than any other timepiece, are suited to commemorating big events, so it’s apt that the way this Baume & Mercier is showcased in its box adds pomp to the occasion. Jean Conrié, Country Manager of Baume & Mercier Australia and New Zealand, talks us through the details of this special watch’s presentation.
