Baume & Mercier Classima Collection: Classima Chronograph Complete Calendar, Classima Central Hand Dual Time and Classima Small Seconds

The Classima collection combines the authenticity of Baume & Mercier watchmaking expertise with a timeless design, offering men’s and women’s timepieces with classic, discreet elegance.

This year, Baume & Mercier extends the Classima collection with three new men’s models: a complete calendar watch with chronograph, a dual time version and a version with small seconds display. Each model features a luminous deep blue dial enhanced with a “grain d’orge” decor.

Baume & Mercier Classima Chronograph Complete Calendar

In this model, Baume & Mercier chose to combine two useful features: the chronograph and the complete calendar.

Baume & Mercier Classima Chronograph Complete Calendar

This watch not only displays the chronograph functions and hours, minutes and small seconds at 9 o’clock; it also features a calendar. The 24-hour indicator makes a clear distinction between day and night. In keeping with tradition, the days and months are displayed in apertures at 12 o’clock. The date is indicated on the perimeter of the Dial by an additional central hand. And to complete the Dial, the moon phases (29.5 days) are displayed at 6 o’clock.

Baume & Mercier Classima Central Hand Dual Time

The Classima dual time watch is dedicated for globe-trotters. While the day’s date is displayed in an aperture traditionally located at 3 o’clock, this Classima goes one step further by proposing a dual time complication. In other words, an additional central hand indicates a second time zone in an elegant, legible way.

While the local time – hours, minutes and seconds – is shown on the three classical central hands, the second time zone may be read upon arriving at destination by checking the red hand that ticks around a round two-tone scale with 24-hour graduations. The white portion indicates the hours of the day, while the blue portion is dedicated to the hours of the night.

Baume & Mercier Classima Small Seconds

Watchmakers have a number of ways to display seconds on a Dial. Among these, the best known remains the sweep seconds, which consists of a central hand that moves around the Dial each minute. In terms of popularity, this essential is closely followed by the small seconds.

This refined detail, appreciated by aficionados of beautiful watches, indicates the seconds thanks to an auxiliary Dial located at 6 o’clock. Completed in this model by the display of the date in an aperture, this useful feature is a tasteful addition to this elegant yet understated Classima.
