New Classima Lady from Baume & Mercier
Baume & Mercier is unveiling eight Classima Lady steel watches for 2019. With new dials and sizes, and with quartz and automatic movements, the collection has been designed to offer every woman her ideal timepiece. Two jewelled models with mother-of-pearl dial and diamond-set case are now being added to enhance the collection.
DELICATE AND FEMININE
The Classima Lady line is defined by its elegant simplicity. This year, 27 mm and 34 mm diameter versions are joining the existing 31 mm models. Each one features the classic hours and minutes functions as well as a date display at 3 o’clock on the dial. All are mounted on a five-row stainless steel bracelet featuring a triple folding clasp with security push-pieces.
BAUME & MERCIER AND WOMEN
The Maison Baume & Mercier has always had a special place in women’s hearts. It all began in 1869 when Louis-Victor Baume gave his daughter Mélina a gold fob watch decorated with floral motifs. This was a very unusual and forward-thinking gift for those times, when women’s watches were rare and did not particularly differ from those designed for men.
The Classima collection is inspired by a watch from 1965, which is kept in the Baume & Mercier archives. This collection represents 189 years of Swiss watchmaking tradition, as well as Baume & Mercier’s heritage of timepieces for women. With the Classima Lady, Baume & Mercier enables every woman to express herself by choosing the watch that reflects her personality.
