Baume & Mercier 8755 43mm Riviera XXL Magnum MOA08755 Titanium Chronograph for men

This BM’s XXL Magnum ref. MOA08755 watch is a large size for gents, in which, its dodecagonal case has 43 mm diameter and is approximately 15 mm thick. While titanium is considered as a lightweight superior metal, still, the timepiece is a tad bit heavy due to its solid case’s construction. Favorably, its supple rubber bracelet offers a nice support to let it remains soundly on the wrist, comfortably.

Bold, but not too showy. This 2007 version Riviera timepiece’s sturdy case holds a big Black dial that is shielded with a scratch resistant sapphire that is enhanced with anti-reflective coating for an improved visibility. On the dial, there are silver tone hands (with skeleton hour hand) and Roman numeral hour markers with SuperLuminova, date display at the 3 o’clock position, and three sub-dials displaying the 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours at the nine, twelve, and six o’clock positions position respectively. In the other side, the watch’s screwed stainless steel caseback has a sapphire transparent exhibition porthole to let you to take a glance at the housed mechanical movement inside.

Inside, Baume & Mercier 8755 Riviera XXL Magnum is fitted with calibre ETA Valjoux 7750, a Swiss made self-winding automatic movement with central sweep seconds chronograph and an automatic date which functions are showcased by the watch dial with an excellent read-ability in every light conditions. Beating at 28,800 vph, this 25 jewels movement provides around 42 hours of power reserve under full wind. Anyway, although the watch is a non-Chronometer, in terms of accuracy, it does work as good as expected. And for the peace of mind, the whole timepiece itself is 200 m water resistant, making it suitable even for skin diving.

The timepiece’s original manufacturer suggested retail price is $4,490.00, which is quite reasonable for a titanium watch with these kind of quality offerings. But still, this model is not a new release so that you should be able to get it for less than its MSRP for this time being.
