This summer in New York, one of the oldest Swiss watch brands, unveiled a new women’s watch collection named Promesse. The new Baume & Mercier Promesse Collection is inspired by the unconventional timepieces the Swiss company created for ladies in the 1970s.
This elegant line of watches consist of 14 pieces which come in two different sizes. The smaller ones measure 30mm in diameters, while the larger ones size 34mm.
Baume & Mercier also offered a choice between a Swiss-made quartz or automatic movement. Whichever type of mechanism you choose, one is sure – you can admire its inner beauty via the transparent sapphire crystal case back.
Each of these new Promesse timepices combine different decorative and functional elements to attract modern women. Promesse wristwatch boasts an oval bezel that surround a round dial, which is yet another nod to its 1970s models.
Most of the Promesse watches feature draped guilloché designs for their dials. There is also a choice of colorful mother-of-pearl dials. Each of them comprises Roman numerals at the quarter hour and either large hour markers or diamond markers on the remaining indices. Depending on a model, diamonds, 18-karat red gold, or mother-of-pearl are also used to enhance the bezels.
The new line offers a wide range of wristlets from a stainless steel bracelet, a two-tone combination (steel and plated red gold), white satin, to a black alligator strap.
The most attractive model in this collection is the Promesse 10160 that features an oval bezel with 30 diamonds, a mother of pearl dial and a three-raw stainless steel bracelet. There is one more interesting vintage timepece – the 10185 model – that boasts a satiny look.
As we are already used to when it comes to the pieces from the Baume & Mercier, these exceptional timepieces are accessible and value-oriented and they can be a perfect either birthday or anniversary gift for one’s wife, girlfriend, or another special lady. The new collection is available from September in selected retailers nationwide, as well as online. The pricing starts from $1,900.
