Want to know what Baume & Mercier will be presenting at the 2010 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in January? Well you don't have to wonder anymore. The Classima Executives XL Chronograph Complete Calendar watch will be centered stage at this prestigious event. The classically shaped round case measures 42mm in diameter, plenty of space to include all the great features offered on the watch. Its silvered dial features a stamped "grain d'orge" guilloche pattern at center and a satin silvered surface on the outer section. The sub dials on the watch have a concentric circle pattern at the chronograph counters. The brand has chosen to use leaf-shaped hands in an oxidized black finish as indicators.

The Extra Large Chronograph is animated by the ETA-Valjoux 7751 caliber self-winding mechanical movement, one that was based upon the legendary 7750 caliber movement. In a rather untraditional move for the brand, you can control the start, stop, and return to zero operations of the chronograph via cam switching rather than a column wheel. The movement allows for a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. All the fine details of the movement are visible through the transparent sapphire exhibition window in the case back. The watch has been carefully crafted to offer a water resistance that is rated for 30 meters. The Classima Executives XL Chronograph Complete Calendar timepiece is completed by an alligator leather strap with a polished stainless steel folding clasp displaying the Baume & Mercier signature.
