This was the first time I purchased a Baume & Mercier timepiece and couldn't be more satisfied. The photo matched the actual product. As an exceptional dress watch, it's thin enough to fit comfortably under the cuffs of most dress shirts. The dial width was slightly larger than I imagined but it's not a problem. One minor note is that it may be difficult to read the time under bright conditions because the light gray hands don't contrast well with the white dial.
I was looking for a certain kind of watch. I wanted a watch with a nice automatic movement, a large case over 40mm, a leather strap, and something a little different than what everyone else is wearing. I wanted a watch that I could wear comfortably to work, and also look great when I wear a tuxedo. This watch meets those requirements, and does more. I love the open window design allowing you to see some of the internal components. There's lots of subtle details on the face that really set it off. I'm not really sold on the deployment leather strap yet. It seems to me like it's either a little too loose, or a little too tight. Maybe in time the leather will become more comfortable and I won't notice the sizing. This was a purchase that I'm very happy about.
