Nice watch.
Almost gave in to it several times.
Like the PO style thick and angled lugs.
Backed away each time for similarity to my Movado 800 chrono.
But that's just me. Enjoy your fine new watch.

What a STUNNER right here Strutn ! cyclops Smile ..Just can't say enough how cool it is to
see a different shaped bezel/case like this. Really is a nice change of pace over what
we are used too imho. Add in the charcteristics you already pointed out of being SO
sleek, classy, and comfortable and you HAVE to happy with this one sir. It's one of those
watches that isn't afraid to be different, or think outside the box. Plus it really seems
like Baume & Mercier backs up the looks, with AMAZING fit, and finish. I mean it does
not matter where you decide to look here on this watch, because it's bound to make
you smile. Very Happy A BIG part of the watch that is so enjoyable in my opinion would have
to be the bezel. It's shape really starts that sleek, and classy theme that you mentioned
extremely well. Each line, turn, along with edge brings more, and more enjoyment if
you ask me. While the dive watch personality which is on top of the bezel ensures
that this Baume & Mercier is going to continue to STUN you with excellence. Just like
Dave pointed out as well, there is a real classy, and sporty feel happening. Just when
you think the watch is going to be a straight forward dress watch with all of the nice,
elegant accents like the bezel shape. It changes gears, adding in some sinister finish
on top to help show off the sporty dive watch numbers, along with markers. Even
the lume pip is there to remind you that this watch is just as sporty, as it is smooth.
..Also noticing that the shape of the bezel spills over onto the actual case shape as
well. Many times a watch company might have a cool bezel shape, but then they
don't keep that theme going with the case. However, Baume & Mercier evidently
wanted to make sure they, much like the look of their watch, did things differently ! Baume & Mercier Riviera XXL 803574
The way in which that heavy steel follows along, mirroring every move of the bezel
is outstanding. Genuinely must be something to see in person Strutn. Yowza !!! I'm
also noticing that the pushers, and especially crown are very well done. That crown
even seems as though it is taking a page out of the bezel's shape book too. Wow,
and the emblem on the crown is a great finishing touch as well. ..That finishing touch
thing could be one of the many themes with this watch. Baume & Mercier doesn't
just give you a nice look. They back it up with some real craftsmanship, and attention
to detail, and that's what helps make a watch become this stunning imho. ..From
this bezel, and case to the most exceptional of dials here. Speaking of the dial, it's
something to see everything come together like this. The vibrant color, the classy,
AND sporty markings, sub-dials, HANDS, tiny dot markers, along with chapter ring,
ALL contribute to what this watch is ..a STUNNER ! It blends the classy, with the sporty,
the new with the old, and manages to have the quality match the design too. Even
this bracelet melts flawlessly into, and out of the case here !!! The brushing, polishing,
as well as shape, and how it sets off the case is one more example of why this one
is SO stunning ! Congratulations Strutn, and of course ..enjoy it !

Stunning watch, stunning pictures !

Very Nice John! The 12 sided bezel does give the watch a different look. I like it.
