Product Description

The elegant Baume & Mercier Men's Classima Executives Automatic Watch features a large, guilloche dial with elongated, silver-toned Roman numeral hour indexes and slender, dark blue hands. The outer perimeter offers a minute track and small, Arabic numeral indexes at intervals of five. Peek-a-boo cutouts at the top of the dial and on back of the stainless steel case offer a glimpse into the watch's inner mechanics. A polished, stainless steel bezel surrounds the dial while an anti-reflective, sapphire crystal window provides scratch resistance. Made from handsome, brown leather, the watch strap completes the sophisticated look of this watch. This stylish timepiece is equipped with precise Swiss automatic movement and is water resistant to 984 feet (300 meters).

    I have had this exact same model for over a year and a half and have had ZERO trouble with it. Baume, does NOT by any means, make a cheap and shoddy product, contrary to what other Amazon users suggest. The look is fantastic with the exposed balance wheel and it is a very elegant piece that people who knows watches notice. The movement is top quality as Baume is owned by the Richmont group who also owns Cartier, IWC, Piaget, A. Lange & Sohne, and Panerai. These are not crappy watches, but a great piece with a great portfolio behind it

    The Classima 8688 is a classic watch with fantastic movement. It is an eye-catching piece that will get noticed because of its visible balance. The hands are a nice shade of blue that contrasts nicely against the white face of the watch. The automatic movement is smooth and mesmerizing. The piece comes with a sharp brown alligator strap. Once set, the watch maintains accuracy

    The only slight negative is the watch does not provide the date, which would've been useful.

    Overall, you will not be disappointed by this purchase. Macy's tried to sell this watch at a 50% premium to what it is going for at Amazon. Additionally, at some other online retailers, it was sold at a 100% premium!

    Having been a loyal Baume et Mercier watchowner since circa 1999, I have had the privilege of being familiar with this high quality brand. In addition, I am up on movements as well as other high end timepiece attributes. This Classima is very aesthetically pleasing, has a nice weight, and possesses the unique features one seeks at this particular price point. The apertures, blued-hands, deployment clasp with leather strap are all synergistically elegant and functional. The only two minor drawbacks I could assess were the following: no screw down crown(a bit difficult to hand wind) and its movement was a little louder than anticipated. All in all truly well done.

    I have many Swiss Watches and wanted an understated but elegant watch. This is very accurate for a automatic watch. Some watches have movements that are unseen, some with movements that are seen on the back of the watch only and some are seen on the front of the watch which are very busy and cover the complete front. This watch has a movement that is seen but does not overwhelm the front of the watch. A great everyday watch and dress watch.

    Easily the best watch I've ever owned. It's classic without being flashy. It's understated cool, and is rather pleasant to look at. The little window affords the appropriate amount of viewing for the inner-workings of the movement without being overwhelming. The alligator skin band and double deployant clasp really speak to the overall quality of the watch, which is phenomenal. My only gripe would be that in a perfectly silent room, you will here the watch's movement. I do mean that the room *must* be completely silent, and even then it is hardly a bother. To me, it's hardly worth mentioning, but I don't know a whole heap about luxury watches. I just know the pictures don't do it justice.
