    My guess, Baume - base ETA A07.L31, MLC - base Sellita SW 200 driving a module.

    It's weird, at first I was sure I liked the Maurice Lacroix better, but after looking at them awhile, I am now pretty sure I like the B&M better. Something about the numerals works better than indices for me. They are both beautiful watches...

    I've owned several Maurice Lacroix' and I have have been very pleased with them. That said, I'm very intrigued by the designs of the new Cliftons. Can we get some verification of what's under their respective hoods?

    ML has easier legibility with the significantly shorter date hand. Of course its a minor issue.

    Saw on some page that the Clifton uses a ETA 2824-2 blank movement equipped with the same Dubois Depraz 9000 add-on module how does it compares to the one on the ML? probably a selita sw300 i guess.
