Baume & Mercier Linea Automatic Collection (Ref 10113 & Ref 10114)

The Linea by Baume & Mercier is a special and unique watch since its launch in 1987, this collection, available in steel or two-tone, delivers what a woman is seeking- an attractive adornment that offers versatility in its look. As a preview of its new collections for SIHH 2013, Baume & Mercier announces two new automatic models from the Linea Collection.

Delicate and feminine, the new Linea Automatic, available in a 27 mm case, possesses the presence of a timeless gem with the elegance of simplistic time display. It is also imbued with the nobility inherent in watches powered by a Swiss mechanical caliber and automatically wound by the movements of its owner. An automatic movement visible through a transparent case back.

This iconic watch, with its bezel so distinctively engraved in steel or in steel trimmed with gold and carrying the hour figures, has now reinvented its own legend, choosing to partner an automatic movement with innate qualities that well deserve to be revealed through the transparent case back. This final choice will cast its spell over dynamic, multi-talented women, delighting those whose timeless penchant for watchmaking gems will express itself fully in using a movement reputed for passing unfailingly from one generation to the next. That’s why the Linea, a small miracle of sophistication, is worn on a steel or two-tone bracelet, designed with a flexibility that adapts to its wearer’s every movement without calling attention to itself. Yet this bracelet possesses a secret enabling it to adapt to every situation in life, thus meeting the expectations of all owners who are attached to their version of the Linea.

Baume & Mercier have invented a bracelet incorporating a patented mechanism that makes it simple to remove without any tools. The Geneva-based company has also created a whole series of interchangeable straps and bracelets in leather or satin-finish, on offer in a wide range of colors, making this watch unique and in harmony with the tastes of every woman who wears it as a tasteful accessory. Available in top-quality steel or in two-tone, these two new Linea watches are powered by a Swiss-made automatic mechanical movement with a time display including a direct-drive center second hand and a discreet date window at 6 o’clock in the mother-of-pearl dial set with 11 diamonds.
