    Baume et Merciet (pronounced bomb-eh me-air-cyah) is a classic timepiece, rated highly by GQ as a classic timepiece and highly recommended as basically the "bottom" of the top tier of the elite manufacturers. Amazon has fantastic prices on it, and although you forgo the original 12 month manufacturers warranty, with Amazon it is authentic and they stand behind it with their own 2 year warranty, and it's well worth it to buy it here, in my opinion.

    This particular model arrived in beautiful packaging with a gorgeous box and pillow, with three parts to the box. Very nice.

    The clasp is definitely slightly more unusual than many other Breitling or other high-end watch straps, but easy to adjust and use. It took me a minute to figure it out, but when I did, it was easy to use... it looks like your typical "belt buckle" style on the outside, but has folded metal mechanisms inside that prevent the watch from falling off your wrist, for example, when trying to buckle it each morning.

    It sits comfortably on a wrist, and although not a small face compared to something like a Patek Phillipe (few high end watches have small faces anymore), doesn't appear bulky. As another reviewer noted, it sits relatively flat against the skin, so doesn't interfere with a dress shirt, for example.

    The black leather band gives is a formal look that would allow this to be used even to a tuxedo level without any heartburn, yet the stainless steel case and the clean white face give it a modern look. Very nice blend of a clean modern watch with a very traditional markings - they rely heavily on what has worked and looked timeless for them over the last 100 years.

    This watch is an automatic, dual-time watch, from Baume & Mercier, one of the best and most well-known Swiss watchmakers.

    I particularly like the way the dual time is indicated: an extra arm on the same movement will point to the second time zone, which avoids having a separate movement and dial and keeps the watch very classy and not crowded at all. Very elegant and stylish. It is also very light. Thickness is about 1/3", which is quite small for an automatic watch.

    It has the big advantage of not being a quartz watch, which makes it more reliable. In fact a sign of that is that you can see the seconds arm continuously rotate instead of the regular intervals made by quartz watches. Finally, best of all is the beautiful sound of the swiss movement, which I would have given an extra star for!

    Final note, don't plan on buying this watch anywhere other than on, since its retail price in jewelers from usual malls is approx $1800. I got mine for less than $1300 on Amazon!

    I recently purchased the Classima model #8462 from and wanted to let everyone know that the transaction was perfect.

    This is the first time that I have purchased an expensive watch online ($1,500) sight unseen, and had some anxieties about doing so. However, with the reputation behind it, I felt it was worth a try, considering the significant savings that could be realized in obtaining a genuine Baume & Mercier.

    The watch came with all of the manufacturer's original materials - presentation case, manual, etc. It is important for folks to know that the manufacturers warranty is not applicable in such a transaction because of the online selling channel. However steps in and provides a full warranty, so this is not really a problem. If it is a genuine watch by a quality Swiss manufacturer, there should never be any warranty issue -- the watch will work out of the box.

    It doesn't make sense to buy a watch any other way!!

    I was debating between an Omega or Breitling GMT watch until I noticed the Baume & Mercier (B&M) 8462 on a mall poster. Scouting the B&M line I now decided on models 8838 or 8462, and chose the latter for several reasons. Looking around at different vendors,'s price of less than $1300 was too good to pass up, and included no tax, free shipping and an in-house warranty to boot!

    A few years back I bought my wife a B&M watch at Costco, but a year later it couldn't keep time properly, even with battery changes. Having it professionally looked at revealed that it had a non-standard B&M quartz movement piece (low-cost asian cloned copy). This was rectified for a few hundred more. The rest of the watch was authenticated by the watchmaker repairman and serial numbers by B&M themselves.

    Thus somewhat cautious, I had my new 8462 watch professionally opened up and was relieved to see that lives up to its authenticity claim. My watch is genuine B&M and has Swiss 2893 movement - equating to a "Top" rating, which I read online somewhere is just shy of official chronometer certification.

    I concur with the other posts. The 8462 is beautiful, lightweight, the red is reddish brown (but tends to suit the watch better IMO), the leather strap operates like a clasp wristband, and note that the time movement arms are chrome vice grey. While watch adjustment is easy to figure out, the all-watches-in-one B&M instruction manual is likely the worst part of this purchase. Overall, the B&M 8462 and are both highly recommended!
