OUR MANUFACTURE MOVEMENT: BAUMATIC
Our Baumatic manufacture movement combines understated elegance and technical reliability, thanks to the latest generation of the Baumatic calibre - the BM14 - certified by the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) and resistant to the magnetic fields encountered in daily life. The Baumatic movement is the essential companion for aesthetes with assertive tastes in perpetual pursuit of performance and innovation.
A mechanical watch always winds down at some point. Some must be rewound after 40 hours of use, others after 70 hours. The Clifton Baumatic is stronger, and its power reserve lasts much, much longer. Through the optimization of its barrel, escapement and hairspring, it offers no fewer than five full days, or 120 hours, of power reserve.
Mechanical watches can fall behind. A few seconds here, a few minutes there... It quickly becomes inaccurate and inefficient. Luckily, the Clifton Baumatic is incredibly punctual. Its new hairspring works together with its variable-inertia balance wheel to guarantee a precision of -4 to +6 seconds per day. This enables the Clifton Baumatic to meet the very exacting standards of the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, or COSC).
Is your telephone protected by a magnetic case? Is your sports bag equipped with a magnetic zipper? Now, there is no need to worry. Thanks to the use of silicon and non-ferromagnetic elements in two of the sensitive components of the movement – the regulating organ and the escapement system –, the Clifton Baumatic offers a magnetic resistance twenty-five times higher than the current standard. Now, you can use your phone without a glitch. And feel free to break a sweat.
Precious things require maintenance, and watches are no exception. The components of a movement naturally wear down through friction. The solution? The use of lubrication oils. Those used in the Baumatic caliber are the result of years of research, and they offer the very best performances. In concrete terms, they make it possible to have maintenance services performed much less frequently than the usually recommended five-year period. Because your time, too, is precious.
