Baume Mercier Unveils Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph Black PVD Steel Watch

Feb 16, 2010
At SIHH 2010, the internationally acclaimed watch brand Baume & Mercier was proud to present its Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph Black PVD Steel watch. Dressed entirely in black, the watch eloquently affirms its character in a sportive style.

Beating at the heart of this horological product is an automatic movement, enclosed in a PVD-coated stainless steel case. Distinguished by a new fluted design, the watch case embraces a two-level dial, equipped with daring indices and skeletonized hands. Another highlight of the timepiece is represented by angled chronograph pushers, which serve to protect the crown.

The Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph Black PVD Steel watch, launched by Baume & Mercier, is a generously proportioned model. Dimensionally, the imposing black case is 15.6mm high and has a diameter of 44 mm. The splendor of the watch is enhanced by the expansive dial framed by a relatively narrow steel bezel.

The watch exerts irresistible attraction on watch lovers due to matte finishing of the dial. Its noble surface proudly reveals recessed chronograph counters, as well as a raised section, intended for the minute hash marks. The watch display also includes hour indexes, remarkable for their length. They coordinate perfectly with audacious skeletonized hour and minute hands. The powerful Superluminova coating, applied to the indices and hands, assures robust low-light visibility. The dial is also completed with a rapidly adjustable date aperture and a small seconds sub-dial.

Baume & Merciers esteemed specialists have equipped their new creation with a screw-down winding crown and case-back in order to minimize negative effect of water, dust, and other damaging elements. The screw- down back exposes a triangular viewing portal with a sapphire window, which provides a fascinating insight into the intricate workings of the Swiss self-winding mechanical ETA-based caliber movement. The mechanism of matchless exactitude, it boasts a respectable power reserve of about 48 hours.

The movement features a smooth glucydur balance wheel, moving back and forth at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The Baume & Mercier Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph Black PVD Steel watch is equipped with a very important professional diving feature: it is 200-meter water-resistant.

The timepiece is accompanied by an extremely durable rubber strap, embellished with a decorative motif of three grooves. It is fitted with a folding clasp in black PVD-treated stainless steel. Similar to the cap of the winding crown, the buckle is marked with the "Phi" symbol of Baume & Mercier.
