At first glance, it evokes the moon in its hues and mysteries. Wearing a grey rubber strap with canvas decoration, the new Riviera Baumatic"Moonphases"is sober. Its sand-colored dial is reminiscent of the large silvered deserts that make up the poetic landscapes we know from the Moon. Satin sunray and lacquered, its beautiful and complex dial is highlighted by a dark gray flange whose coloring subtly echoes the small auxiliary dial located at 6 o'clock displaying the date and moon phases. With its efficient and refined design, the new Baume et Mercier Riviera Baumatic moonphase displays its personality in a steel case with a diameter of 43 mm that takes up the characteristic codes of the Riviera family: a dodecagonal steel bezel fixed by 4 steel screws (black microblasted ADLC treatment), Roman numeral at 12 o'clock, riveted hour markers at 3 and 9 o'clock.
