    Baume & Mercier Clifton Baumatic spring bars

    I was at an AD for Baume & Mercier a few days back and was quite drawn to the Clifton Baumatic. This one had a leather strap. The salesperson removed the strap and it revealed that it used curved spring bars and 2 sets of holes in the lugs. The factory strap was in the closest holes to the case.

    My question: Can anyone confirm that a straight spring bar equipped regular strap work without rubbing the case? Thanks!

    No. Nobody will be able to confirm that because it depends on the thickness of the leather around the spring bar. How are we suppostd to give you a general answer to that?

    Besides, even with normal straps, you should use the curved spring bars intended for the case.

    I'm surprised there isn't a Baume & Mercier dedicated page on here.

    I agree with this.
