With its steel fake Baume & Mercier Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph watch, the Swiss brand introduces yet another timepiece that, although being dressy and elegant, lacks its own face. Unlike a lot of competing products, the watch doesn’t pretend to be what it is definitely not. The Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph boldly says that it belongs to the mass product market and feels good about it.
It is no use ranting about how current mass-production watches are faceless and overpriced, since you can see the same situation repeated over and over again on just about any market, from cars to TV-sets to music to cinema to, ahem, product-oriented weblogs.
Its 44 mm case combines polished and satin finished surfaces and provides more than enough living space for its ETA Valjoux 7753 automatic movement. Featuring a standard tri-compax dial layout, the mens Baume & Mercier copy watch sports a highly-legible, well-balanced dial, which is slightly spoiled with B&M’s trademark hour and minute hands.
Giving Baume & Mercier its due, the hands feature generous amount of SuperLuminova luminescent substance guaranteeing superb readability even at night and, perhaps, even underwater. I mean, the Swiss fake Baume & Mercier Classima Executives Magnum XXL Chronograph comes with a black rubber strap with adjustable triple folding buckle, and with a water resistance rating of 200 meters so you can use it while scuba diving.
