Riviera Chronograph - Red gold/rubber XXL
The harmonious power of contrasts

Baume & Mercier Riviera chronograph Steel-Red gold / Rubber, XX - ref.: M0A08712
Watchmaking evolution is all about endless reinvention… one’s own myths too!
In 2004, the designers at Baume & Mercier created a new generation of Riviera.
A rejuvenation treatment that did not make any concessions in its quest for modernity; the Riviera preserves its essence - a dodecagonal watchcase and a flexible strap for unequalled comfort, while the dial doted with Roman numerals demonstrates meticulous restyling and ultimate attention to detail.
It isn’t surprising that today, this line is increasingly winning the favors of the most exacting connoisseurs.
The Riviera XXL chronograph will be no exception. Dressed in new apparel, its powerful and harmonious presence does not go unnoticed. The imposing 43mm dodecagonal case in black PVD steel has its rightful place. But above all, the contrasting red gold bezel underscored by the symmetry of the four screws and a black vulcanized rubber strap puts it in a class of its own.
The combination of noble materials is further enhanced by a superb dial finish featuring a transfer printed glossy white honeycomb décor to recall the dodecagonal shape of the watch. Baume & Mercier’s symbol, the letter phi, is present on the gilt hour hand, whereas the counters remain discreet to underscore the brilliance of the bezel.
With its personal stamp, the Riviera made its mark in the 70s. Succeeded by high caliber heirs like the Riviera Chronograph XXL, it is destined to have the same impact on this millennium.
