Combining excellent watch making craftsmanship and high tech materials with simple rugged design Baume & Mercier announces the Classima XXL #8853. New to the market in 2010 this larger sized fluted case 44mm watch is handsomely done in black satin-finished and sand-blasted PVD coated stainless steel.
Accentuated by profiled push buttons it features self-winding movement. It has an industrial feel to it with riveted “appliqué” rhodium-plated SuperLuminova hands and indices providing clear viewing in dimly lit circumstances.
The screw-down crown with the Phi symbol adorning it ensures water resistance to 200m making it perfectly safe for a spontaneous dip in the pool. The date is displayed at 6 o’clock for easy viewing with the chronograph sub-dial at 3 o’clock and the small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
The strap is vulcanized black rubber with an adjustable triple folding buckle adding to the simple yet elegant design. The case back has a triangular shaped opening revealing the oscillating weight adorned with “Cotes de Geneve”. Anti-glare sapphire crystal protects the front and back of the piece.
Combining ruggedness and virile boldness the Classima line of watches is sure to please any urban dweller. Classic yet current, this look will please todays metropolitan man in both the business world and on urban adventures.
