Baume & Mercier Linea Collection (Holyday Season 2012)

Posted by

With its graceful rounded curves, Linea has been a must-have icon of elegance and femininity ever since it was created in 1987, and is famous both for its bezel with the prominent engraved numerals and its distinctive system of interchangeable straps. For this holiday season, Swiss watch brand Baume & Mercier offers three magnificent emblematic watches in extremely refined versions that nevertheless stay true to the femininity of the original model. The “sundeck” decorated case backs, the brand’s own discreet “seaside living” signature, can be personalized and engraved to order, making each piece a unique object.

Baume & Mercier Linea 10092
Linea 10092 is the jewel of the collection unveiled by Baume & Mercier for the holiday season. A dazzling gift for someone special, the famous combination of case and integrated bracelet in satin-brushed steel is here enhanced by the omnipresence of 151 set diamonds, including 32 on the bezel, 11 on the white mother of- pearl dial, and 108 on the central bracelet links, making a total of 1.96 carats.

Ideally proportioned, with a 27 mm diameter, this watch with its quartz movement can also be worn with an additional black satin strap. An exclusive ingenious system of interchangeable straps, the Linea collection lets the wearer change straps in an instant without a tool, adding the right color to any fashionable look.
