Baume & Mercier Linea Collection 2011

Originally launched in the 1980s, Linea rapidly became an international bestseller. The watch’s soft lines, sensual curves and confident luxury epitomizes femininity at the highest level. Its characteristic details, including the renowned bezel with its prominent numerals, make it one of the most easily identifiable of all women’s watches.

In 2000, the concept of the interchangeable bracelet gave this watch its highly characteristic aesthetic and made Linea the iconic watch of the Baume & Mercier Maison d’Horlogerie, thus establishing it among the brand’s other decidedly charismatic watches such as Marquise, Galaxy, and Catwalk.

Linea remains universally adored, always celebrated, and never forgotten. Today, its new interpretation constitutes an event in and of itself. A winning come-back with a line that remains loyal to the high standards of femininity: a domed crystal, a rounded shape and fluid lines highlighted in this new model by a continuous bevel on the case and the bracelet.

Among the characteristics which differentiate the new Linea from its previous memorable incarnations is the charm of its enlarged size, its polished and satined finishes and a redesigned bracelet. Other upgrades: the addition of the date and the second as well as riveted indexes. Finally, Linea is guaranteed to be water-resistant up to 50 meters.

Metal was selected as the material for the bracelet, which boasts a remarkably comfortable design in perfect harmony with the aesthetic of this unique watch. Otherwise, satin or black calfskin is available for the single strap, or elegant brown calfskin for the wrap around strap.

Continuing with the principle of interchangeability, a true hallmark of this collection, the wearer may easily change the strap to suit her mood or her style. On the new Linea, the clasp allows for an even easier opening, no tool required, and all the steel models are offered in a special packaging which contains a second bracelet for guaranteed pleasure!

For the range, the options vary attractively: choose from 27 or 32 mm in case diameter; black, mother-of-pearl or silver-colored dial; plain or diamond-set bezel; and two types of movements: quartz with hours, minutes and seconds or quartz chronograph displaying minutes, seconds and tenths of seconds in three counters.

The emblematic Linea watches are 32 mm models with a mother-of-pearl dial offered with an additional bracelet in satin or black calfskin, both understated and chic.

The watches are available in two versions: mechanical self-winding with a sapphire crystal case back allowing the wearer to admire the oscillating weight decorated with the Phi symbol, or quartz chronograph with a bezel set with 42 diamonds and the bracelet attachment links set with 36 diamonds for a total of 1.4 carats.
