Baume & Mercier Linea 10017 Watch offers a very nice exterior design that many women will adore. The sparkling diamonds enhance its bezel and bracelet, while its mother-of-pearl dial gives an extra dose of luxury.
This top of the range Linea timepiece is housed in a round, feminine case that measures 32mm in diameter and 10.4mm in thickness. The case is crafted from stainless steel, polished and satin finished and protected with a glare-proof sapphire crystal.
The bezel is set with 42 diamonds, while the bracelet attachment links boast 36 diamonds for the total weighing of 1.34 carats. These diamonds serve as a perfect frame for a mother-of-pearl & snailed silver-colored dial.
The idea to put the Arabic numerals 6 and 12 as hour markers on the bezel is a very interesting design detail. Thus, the dial comprises only riveted indexes, three sub-dials and a date window situated between 4 and 5 o’clock positions. Two chronograph counters are set on the upper part of the dial, while a small seconds counter is placed at the 6 o’clock position.
The new Linea is secured to the ladies’ wrist with a polished and satin finished three-raw stainless steel bracelet, fitted with a triple folding clasp. Like all Linea models, this watch also comes with an interchangeable bracelet. A brilliant clasp system is hidden away under the lugs. The additional wristlet is a black satin strap which ends with a pin buckle. It is a nice choice for those of you who prefer more comfortable wristlets.
The water resistance of the new Linea watch is assured down to 50 meters (about 165 feet) and it comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty. It is the perfect watch to give as a gift or to buy it for oneself. The retail price is $9,950, but with discounts, it can be purchased for about $6,000 – $6,500.
