It is sought after by everyone from corporate executives to celebrities. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if several world leaders own one of these watches.

It is expected that this top Swiss watch brand will unveil new and improved watches for its collection at the SIHH 2011. Some of the things to look forward to include:

Baume & Mercier Classima Automatic Jumping Hour

Some design aesthetics of this watch look familiar. For example, the guilloche dial, the alligator strap, and the black numerals on the timepiece seem similar to previous models. New features cannot be hidden, however! For example, the jumping hour function will impress any watch fans because it is both ingenious and remarkable. Its functionalities lie on the Dubois Depraz 14400 automatic movement.

In this movement alone, the expertise of Baume & Mercier is visible. The details can be examined at the sapphire crystal case back. The oscillating weight contains the brand’s logo while the "Cotes de Geneve" motif is also engraved on the movement.

Baume & Mercier Classica Red Gold Watch (Power Reserve and Dual Time Zone)

Measuring 39mm in diameter, this particular Classica watch’s most noticeable features is its glamorous dial and overall sophisticated design. The 18-karat red gold case adds an air of luxury and elegance to anyone who would wear this watch. The Classica Red Gold Watch is powered by the Soprod 9035 movement which is a self-winding mechanism.

There are certainly a lot of notable features on these Swiss watches including dual-time zone functionality and its date function (displayed at the 3 o’clock position). In addition to this, the beautiful design of this watch can be admired at any angle. Even the internal workings of the timepiece can be examined through the sapphire crystal case back.

Both of the Classica watches mentioned here are water resistant for up to 30 meters. For majority of watch connoisseurs, that means that they can look elegantly luxurious while yachting on the weekend! Indeed, perfection has been attained in the Classica collection. So if you are looking for a watch for this New Year, consider buying a new Baume & Mercier watch.
