Founded in 1830 by brothers Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume, Baume & Mercier is one of the oldest watchmakers in Switzerland. Known for its complication watches, Baume & Mercier has excelled in the art of watchmaking with its chronographs, minute repetitions and chronometers. The classic appearance of the Classima combines elegant curves and a highly polished finish, thus creating a perfectly balanced wristwatch. The stainless steel case – which is of a comfortable 42mm in diameter – houses the Swiss-Made automatic movement with a chronograph and date complication. The crisp silver dial is perfectly complemented with blue accents for the hands, sub-dials and the arabic markers. The blue alligator strap is rugged enough for day-to-day wear.
