Baume & Mercier go vintage with its new watches

First published: 27-08-2010

Watchmaker Baume & Mercier is going for more traditional designs for its new timepieces, highlighted by a distinct size feature.

Two varieties of Baume & Mercier Classima Executives L Ultra Thin watches will soon be able to be purchased by watch fans and will be part of the company's Classima Executive collection.

The main highlight about these watches is that they have an ultra-thin Swiss movement, measuring at only 1.6mm, Watch Luxus has reported.

They follow the past styles of the watchmaker, whose Classima Executive range is described as supplying "the heritage of Baume & Mercier's watch-making know-how", and come available in either a black or white dial option.

Other features that may interest watch fans to invest in these watches are that they both contain a face featuring numerals and hour-markers made of rhodium-plated Roman covered in a sapphire crystal that is scratch-resistant.

Finishing off these stylish and vintage timepieces is a polished stainless steel case and a strap made from alligator leather.
