This is a Wyler P.W. 1896 Swiss Geneve Automatic Etanche Chronograph 18K gold-plated with date, Ref. 04.93.1631. I bought it in the spring of 2017. When I got it, the mechanism was in bad shape, with the rotor rattling around in the watch case. After being serviced by an expert watchmaker, it works like a charm!
I love the design of the Portuguese watches from IWC and this chronograph is exquisite.

I love the design of this watch. It’s so elegant, so refined. Time and time again, I find myself coming back to Baume & Mercier watches, they strike a chord with me.
The eye-catching elegance of the Baume & Mercier Men’s Classima Automatic Chronograph Watch features both chronograph subdials and electric blue accents for increased functionality and style. Classima Executives watches are the heritage of Baume & Mercier’s watch-making know-how. They offer a style derived from sobriety, a classical, elegant look. Classima Executives reinterprets the brand’s watch-making tradition with mechanical movements with small, useful complications and refined finishings. Constructed with a stainless steel case, the timepiece includes a round stainless steel bezel and a metallic-brown leather wristband secured with a deployment buckle. A scratch-resistant-sapphire window shields the textured silver dial, which features silver-dash hour markers, slim minute markers, and Arabic numeral indexes at five-minute intervals. The dial also includes two chronograph subdials with electric-blue detailing, a date calendar at three o’clock, and electric blue watch hands. Featuring Swiss-automatic movement, the watch is water resistant to 165 feet (50 M).
