Two things struck us most at Baume & Mercier’s booth at the SIHH 2018: the first is the new Baumatic movement. The second is the brand’s partnership with Indian Motorcycle, which, despite its name, is not actually from the subcontinent but the US. The company’s legacy stretches back to the start of the 20th century.

Meanwhile, the Baumatic is Baume & Mercier’s first silicon equipped movement. Produced by the Richemont production unit, it comes with a five-day power reserve and is available in COSC and non-COSC versions.

Motorcycle enthusiasts can also look forward to the Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Burt Munro Tribute Limited Edition designed to honour the legendary motorcycle racer and his record-breaking feat in 1967.

We’ll be posting daily roundups of SIHH throughout the week, along with in-depth analyses later on in the month, so stay tuned. In the mean time, follow us on Instagram and watch our InstaStories for the latest happenings at SIHH.
