Slim watches have paradoxically always provided watchmakers with the best means of lending substance to their talent, while also enabling their owners to reveal a noble-minded and impeccably well-cultured approach. Baume & Mercier has made a number of thin watches in the course of its history. First launched in 1965, the ultra-thin white gold watch, powered by a self-winding micro-rotor movement, still offers one of the finest examples of this passion. Representing the ultimate balanced classical watch, this model belonging to the Baume & Mercier museum inspired the Classima collection and has shaped its success.

The Classima collection is inspired by a slender watch from the late 1960s. The extremely pure case combining straight lugs with a guilloché silver-colored dial is unanimously appreciated by connoisseurs for whom minimalism and finesse are a token of durability. Further heightening this impression of purity, Roman numerals and slim indexes share the available space in a supremely discreet manner. This timepiece fitted with an alligator strap or steel bracelet is driven by a mechanical self-winding ovement. It is an instrument designed to meet the expectations of those keen to wear a model perfectly tailored to match a strict and chic business suit.

Because it is always possible to pare down a design, Baume & Mercier offers the Classima in a version in which the temporal representation is confined to essentials. In this layout, the time appears entirely unadorned, punctuated only by understated Roman numerals and hand-applied indexes, a date window, as well as a slender central seconds hand on some versions.

Driven by a Swiss Made quartz movement, this delightfully balanced and remarkable slim 5 mm thick model is worn with a leather strap to make it as discreet as it could possibly be.

Decked out in red gold, the Classima dares to express the sensuality of its material and proves ideal for welldressed occasions or situations where it is essential to project an image of balance and restrained strength. A first 39 mm watch with a silver-colored dial and powered by a self-winding movement is worn on a black alligator strap secured by a pin buckle. A precious counterpart to this subtly discreet model, the red gold 33 mm version features a mother-of-pearl dial adorned with gilt Roman numerals and diamond indexes.

These supremely sophisticated models, forming a perfect tandem and revealing their meticulously finished self-winding movement through the transparent case back, are clearly designed to meet the expectations of men and women who appreciate an understated expression of luxury.
