Baume & Mercier has created a number of slimline timepieces in its history. In 1965 it launched a bracelet watch in white gold powered by an automatic caliber with microrotor. Today, this classic timepiece forms part of the House’s Museum Collection and has inspired the Classima collection, helping to bring it to the attention of a public who appreciate that minimalism is a sign of great quality.

These new Classima watches are housed in a polished steel case with a sun satin-finished silver-colored dial, mounted on a red-brown alligator strap. They are the perfect addition to this line of instruments whose timeless elegance has the amazing ability to enhance special occasions in life. These two watches in contrasting sizes (33mm and 42mm in diameter) maximize their evocative power thanks to their case-back that can be engraved with a personal message to capture the significance of the special moment.

Classima 10144 and 10147

The steel Classima with a case diameter of 42 mm is an urban watch. Housing a Swiss-made quartz caliber known for its extreme reliability, it features a sun satin-finished silver-colored dial with gilt Roman numerals and delicate hour markers. It displays the hours and minutes plus the date through an aperture at 3 o’clock, and is worn on a traditional strap in red-brown alligator leather, fastened with a pin buckle.

The ref. 10147, with its 33mm, is the second watch of the pair, designed to women.

The new 2014 Classima line also includes the ref. 10148 and 10146, both featuring  a 33mm steel case.
