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.
Just received my Baume & Mercier watch and I'm thrilled with it. My only regret is that I'm giving as a gift! At least I know the recipient will be floored by it. It's absolutely beautiful, completely authentic (with serial numbers), expertly packaged by Baume & Mercier and carefully handled and delivered by UPS in just 3 days. Who wouldn't be thrilled.

If you are looking for a high quality dress watch the B&M Classima line is hard to top. This watch is absolutely stunning. None of the pictures I have seen do this watch justice. The fit and finish are top notch and the soft leather band makes this a very comfortable watch to wear. It is also slim enough to wear under a dress shirt which some automatics have problems with due to the thickness. I am very impressed with this watch and would recommend it to anyone considering buying a time piece they can wear for a lifetime. The Classima will never go out of style.
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.
