During Watches and Wonders 2021, Baume & Mercier Classima date unveiled two new Classima models which reveal a sun satin-finished slate-gray dial. These watches follow the current fashion trends. Pantone has selected “Ultimate Grey” as the color of the year, along with a bright yellow called “Illuminating”. This particular grey shade (PANTONE 17-5104) is inspired by the pebbles on the beach.
The new Baume & Mercier Classima date watch with Ultimate Grey dial is available in two sizes: 31 mm and 42 mm. The 31 mm Baume & Mercier Classima date is driven by a self-winding movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
This movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back. The 8.25 mm polished stainless steel case makes it a comfortable wrist adornment with detailed finishes including a cabochon-shaped crown.
The sun satin-finished slate-gray dial reveals a date aperture at 3 o’clock. As an elegant finishing touch, it features rhodium-plated Roman numerals and eight diamond-set indexes, flattered by the delicate sweep of rhodium-plated leaf hands. This timepiece is presented with an integrated, interchangeable five-row steel strap featuring a triple folding clasp.
The 42 mm model also houses a self-winding movement, this time with a 38-hour power reserve. Its polished stainless steel case has a solid case back, ideal for personalized engraving. The sapphire crystal front glass reveals a gray dial with radiant undertones emanating from the sun satin effect of the slate gray.
The Roman numerals and indexes emphasize the flange surrounding the dial, lightly swept by the blue-tinted leaf hands. An aperture displays the date at 3 o’clock.
This piece is mounted on an interchangeable blue canvas strap, lending it a casual style. It is easy to change the strap for any occasion to bring this model a completely different look thanks to the simple interchangeability system, which requires no tools. The customers may even opt for a trendy color combination by selecting a colorful strap from the broad range of pantones available in calfskin.
