Baume & Mercier has teamed up with a number of daring young athletes recently to promote its Club Clifton Collection in a campaign it is calling “Gentlesportsmen”. Revolution caught up with one of them, Swiss pro-snowboarder and musician Pat Burgener, who is just back from the Winter Olympics where he competed in the Men’s Snowboarding Halfpipe Competition.

Revolution joined him in Crans-Montana for an exclusive interview on the slopes to talk about his passion for both snowboarding and music (he just launched his first album, The Route). We discover how this self-confessed “trouble kid” has escalated to stardom in record time, but manages to keep his feet firmly on the ground, making him the perfect role model for the next generation of Baume & Mercier clients.
