Baume & Mercier Riviera XXL Magnum PVD red gold

Posted by wristwatch on September 28, 2007


Baume & Mercier chooses to enhance its most sophisticated steel model with an aura of prestige and mystery, giving rise to the RIVIERA XXL MAGNUM PVD RED GOLD. The prestige is conveyed through the red gold double bezel framing the sporty dial; and mystery in the matte-black PVD coating of its case and bezel. This noble gold and steel model embodies a refined and precious expression of powerful contemporary design.

This charismatic new version is both sturdy and supple thanks to the combination of metal and vulcanized rubber used for its band. Despite its imposing 43-mm diameter, the RIVIERA XXL MAGNUM PVD RED GOLD is firmly secured to its owner’s wrist and geared up for action. The two chronograph counters, featuring an anthracite surround decorated with Côtes de Genève motif, stand out clearly against the black dial base to ensure optimal readability.

This model with its clever play on light and shade is driven by a mechanical self-winding Valjoux 7750 movement. A vertical porthole on the back of the case reveals the pulsating beat of its powerful mechanism and the gentle swaying of the oscillating weight, further reinforcing the irresistible magnetic attraction exercised over its owner by this truly exceptional timepiece.
