    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 Amazon.com, since its retail price in jewelers from usual malls is approx $1800. I got mine for less than $1300 on Amazon!

    I have owned multiple marquis Swiss watches over the yrs. I own Rolex, Cartier, Breitling, Omega, Tissot and Longines watches. Always wanted a Baume and Mercier and bought this one for its classic looks. The watch is gorgeous. Fit and finish is pristine. However it was a nightmare owning this watch.
    If you look at the other reviews, a lot of folks complain about the clasp. Sure enough, not only was the clasp very complicated to lock and take off, it failed on multiple occasions to the point that the watch almost fell off my wrist once. I started feeling very insecure when wearing the watch and found myself checking my wrist on multiple occasions to see if the watch was still on !!! Not a very good thing for an 1800 dollar watch.
    I was still willing to give the watch a chance and kept wearing it . I noticed that some days it would lose upto 4 minutes time in a 24 hr period and on other days would gain upto 3 minutes. This makes no sense as generally the watch should be either slow or fast ( which would be fixed by fine tuning), but not both !!!. Again one does not expect a watch of this pedigree to behave worse than a 50 dollar Timex . Finally, one day the watch just stopped working ( I had taken it off to go to sleep for six hours). I wound it and shook it some and that got it started promptly but at that point I lost all confidence in this watch.
    Baume and Mercier should be ashamed of themselves. I am not the only one of this forum who has had a bad experience with this particular watch. I have known people who have had this brand of watch for 30 to 50 yrs and continue to wear their peices even today. However, I for one will never buy this brand again. For those of you on the fence about buying this watch, stay clear of it.
    The only silver lining in this otherwise terrible experience was the EXCELLENT service by AMAZON. The watch was taken back for a full refund with no questions asked.

    Me and my husband have three Baume and Mercier watches between the two of us deployment and we are happy with the watches but the bands and clasps are problematic.
    The Classima watch : the deployment clasp/buckle came undone from the leather strap because one piece of a screw holding it together got lost while wearing it. The watch had been worn a dozen times. After contacting B&M they tell you that the complete buckle has to be replaced, cost $ 125
    Ladies watch with diamond bezel and stainless steel bracelet : it is a miracle that I still have this watch as already three times I did find the watch on the floor, every time because screws holding the stainless bracelet together came undone and one time the clasps holding the bracelet to the watch lost tension. Every time when sending it in, although it is just a missing screw, it has been a repair of over $ 100.
    I just stopped wearing the watch, and so did my husband. Never had any problems with the watch or mechanism , always with the clasps and bracelets.
    Strange that we both have the same problems, on watches that hardly ever are worn....
