The Classima collection combines the authenticity of Baume & Mercier watchmaking expertise with a timeless design, offering men’s and women’s timepieces with classic, discreet elegance. This year, Baume & Mercier extends the Classima collection with three new men’s models. They respectively feature a complete calendar, a dual time display and a small seconds that all reinforce the fine watchmaking character of this emblematic line. Three interpretations with a timeless look…
The new Classima models showcase three complications geared towards today’s man: active yet refined, an urban globe-trotter.
In the watchmaking world, they are called „small complications“: convenient for everyday life, easy to use, and suitable in all circumstances.
Each model features a luminous deep blue dial – a widely popular shade among watch designers – that is enhanced with a „grain d’orge“ decor.
The self-winding mechanical calibre may be admired through the sapphire case back of the 42 mm steel case. The oscillating weight is adorned with Côtes de Genève, snailed decors and Baume & Mercier characteristic Phi logo. Each model is available on a matte alligator strap with wide square scales or on a steel bracelet for a more distinctive, sport-inspired character.
In this model, Baume & Mercier chose to combine two useful features: the chronograph and the complete calendar.
This dual complication enables the modern dandy to take a first step into the wonderful world of traditional watchmaking
This watch is multi-facetted. Indeed, on a single dial, it not only displays the chronograph functions and hours, minutes and small seconds at 9 o’clock; it also features a calendar. The 24-hour indicator makes a clear distinction between day and night. In keeping with tradition, the days and months are displayed in apertures at 12 o’clock. The date is indicated on the perimeter of the dial by an additional central hand. And to complete the dial, the moon phases (29.5 days) are displayed at 6 o’clock.
