    They both probably have ETA movements (likely 2892 and 2893). B&M is a well respected company, though less known outside of WIS circles.

    Hi UWB,

    Thx for your reply & info, will see what I can find out from that.

    I like your choice of B&M, nice looking watch & was one I was looking @ but wasn't on sale, so I've chosen the 8787 18Kt.
    Got a Great $ on it so couldn't refuse the chance to pick it up.

    Regards.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Sorry for the ommision :| Here it is here.

    Classima Executives 8787 | Baume & Mercier

    That IS IT, once you look @ in person & on wrist it is a great looking watch with a nice feel to it. As I have a fairly-very small wirst this fits very well.
    Especially considering I got it for quite a good discount.

    I added this to my recent watch buying spree [hopefully ending it as well for the year+] of the Birks RPM Sports watch from this past Jan [excellent value got 50% off, really nice looking watch as well> BIRKS RPM® Sports Watch Collection for Him, Stainless Steel ...; Collection of exclusive and unique Birks RPM Collection in our selection of Watches - Birks.Com Online Store <
    a Seiko Premier Direct Drive Moonphase S/S, a Porsche Design Edition 3 Titanium Chrono, and also picked up the same day as the B&M a Frederique Constant World Timer Index S/S.

    So I think I am set for all eventualities for a while, now just have to pay them off along with 6+ months worth of Collectable Fountain Pens

    Thx again all, looking forward to learning much more of the ins & outs of this new exciting & facinating passion.

    Cheers,
    CR

    I really like the 8787, it was out of my price range though :). It's a georgous watch and will likely last you forever. Enjoy :)

    i like the look of the 8787 better. i would also like it better in stainless steel or white gold.

    Hi Tk,

    Yes I agree both of those options would be nice as well but it only comes in 18kt Yellow Gold so the opportunity to pick it up for a song [big Boxing Day/Week Sale] from an AD was beyond my resolve & will power so I broke down, took the bait & the rest is history :| hahaha

    *** A correction on my PD Watch, it's a Porsche Design Edition 3 Dashboard P'6612 Titanium Watch with T/Bracelet.
