Beaume-et-Mercier

Classima GMT (Ref 10040)

This classic expression might well apply to the 2011 new releases in the Linea ladies’ line or the sporty Capeland line, but is particularly suited to the Classima Automatic GMT from Baume & Mercier. Its timeless style and its sheer functionality make it a safe investment greatly appreciated by executives with a penchant for discreet elegance – a quality further accentuated in the red gold version. The date, second time-zone in 24-hour mode and the power-reserve display will appeal to devotees of fine mechanical watchmaking, who will also enjoy admiring the openworked oscillating weight bearing a Côtes de Genève motif and visible through the sapphire crystal case-back. The muse of this collection is not a person, but a region: the Hamptons, the chic seaside resort on the East Coast of the United States.
