In June last year four new Baume & Mercier watches were added to their Classima Executives collection. The new models were all-steel variations with polished/brushed-satin bracelets that complemented previous models in the collection, which were available exclusively with alligator leather straps.
To see in a new year, and a new decade, Baume & Mercier have added yet another model to their prestigious Classima Executives collection, the Classima Executives XL chronograph with complete calendar.
In keeping with the style of the Executives collection, this chronograph is traditionally finished, and is equipped with a high-end mechanical self-winding movement driving indications of a complete calendar. The date is displayed with central pointer in 18-carat red gold, the day and month can be seen through a window that is located at 12 o’clock, and a window indicating the phases of the moon is located at 6 o’clock. There is also a 24h indicator located at 9 o’clock.
To the front, the silver-coloured dial has a grain d’orge guilloché decoration, with circular snailed and sun satin-finished counters. To the back, the case-back reveals an oscillating weight and the engraved words ‘Côtes de Genève’.
The Baume & Mercier emblem, the Greek letter Phi, typically appears as the brand’s signature on the crown.
Baume & Mercier’s Classima Executive collection, the classic round timepiece with its understated style and elegance, has come to represent the brand’s signature of watch-making know-how. Watches in the Classima Executive collection, as with other Baume & Mercier watches are available from The Watch Gallery, London.
