    Zenith Elite or Baume & Mercier Classima - Which would you pick?

    I'm in the market for my first real dress watch i'm down to these

    Zenith Elite Ultra Thin
    images are borrowed :)




    Baume & Mercier Classima Executive Open Heart




    They both have their good point and bad points. I like thin watches with diameter no larger than 42mm, though 39mm would be ideal. I know the Zenith uses in-house movement, but I don't know much about the B&M. I'm looking for more insight, info, and suggestions before i going to the AD.

    Yeah, can't see many votes coming for the B&M.

    I like the modern classic look of the BM. Can't go wrong with either though. The Zenith says "old money" and the BM hints at "nouveau riche." Of course you know what everyone says about opinions. No doubt that you will enjoy which ever one you choose. Congratulations on your upcoming purchase.

    No contest at all - Zenith.... but I'd go for the one with the guilloché dial.

    I expected Zenith to have the edge, but can you elaborate on why zenith is such a winner over the B&M besides the movement? The guilloche and open heart is what made me consider the B&M. How's the fit finish of the Zenith?
