3. Baume & Mercier Clifton Club 10337
This watch is a contemporary timepiece straight from the Geneva line. It’s characterized by the date, hours, and minutes alongside a beautiful orange and white middle sweep seconds hand. This neoteric mien makes it a rather versatile watch, fit for a variety of social settings.

The hour and minutes pointers are vivid, interfacing with button-kind hour markers. All hour markers resemble an isosceles triangle having a shortened tip.
