Baume & Mercier have just added two models to its Riviera Magnum Sports Collection, both with an extra large case measuring 45 mm in diameter. Previously the Riviera Magnum cases were 43 mm in diameter.
These new Baume & Mercier watches retain the sporty feel of the popular Riviera collection. The characteristic twelve-sided bezel, used on Riviera models since 1973, is still secured to the case by four black PVD-coated screws. Also, the collection continues to be guaranteed water resistant to 200 meters, partly because of this particular method of case construction. And, the screw-down back and crown; as well as scratch-resistant anti-glare sapphire crystals continue to ensure optimal sturdiness and readability.
But the two new models have a number of advanced design features. These include a redesigned case in which one side is shaped like a car radiator grille; new hollowed hands; a larger crown; and a new rubber strap that is secured by an adjustable triple folding clasp.
Of the two new models, one is a limited-edition, all-black chronograph that has a black tinted sapphire dial and counters, and a fly back complication. The other is an athletic three-pointer and date display model.
These new XXL sports watches are now available at Jura Watches, authorised dealers of Baume & Mercier watches in the UK.
