In today's day and age, when most men have forgotten how to be a gentleman or have given up trying to be one, a true gentleman stands out. And being a gentleman doesn't have to mean being weak or being a pushover – it doesn't even mean you have to move slowly with women. A gentleman is someone who has respect for others, and consequently helps those who need their help. He is someone who has a kind heart, not just all about expensive clothing and a good education. A gentleman understands that his appearance, behavior, and way of communicating provide others with valuable insight into his character. He knows that he did not acquire his true strength at the gym. Rather, he demonstrates true strength through his strong character and integrity. And just like a true gentleman, Baume & Mercier is committed to offering watch lovers models that defy the passage of the years, and the Clifton collection extends the mastery of traditional watchmaking that it has steadily developed since its foundation in 1830. And within the Clifton collection, the 1830 is probably the true gentleman’s watch. Powered by a stunning La Joux Perret hand-wound movement housed in an 18k red gold case, the watch oozes elegance.
Come see it at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon.
