Baume & Mercier – Linea Day & Night

The Linea collection is at once creative and delicate, embodying a certain vision of feminine elegance with its streamlined designs. To celebrate this view of woman with the prestige it deserves, Baume & Mercier is offering two very exclusive new models this year. These two watches are truly fine pieces of jewelry combining flawlessness and refinement for an incomparable expression of femininity. Produced in a limited edition of just a hundred examples each, they offer a taste of the exceptional to the women who choose them.

This contemporary icon inspired by a historic Baume & Mercier model produced in the 1950s has regularly been reinventing its own legend since it was launched in 1987. The distinction of this intensely stylish, continually updated collection is to subtly enhance the natural grace of unique, multi-faceted women who consider their watch a companion of the great moments of their existence.

Especially for these women, Baume & Mercier today presents two new Linea Day & Night 32 mm diameter steel models produced in just 100 examples each. These refined designs will fulfill the expectations of women looking for a jewelry watch that works its magic day and night. Along with their quartz movements, each of these fantastic pieces features a mother-of-pearl dial decorated with champlevé waves set with diamonds. The originality of the decor is that it is extended to the bezel of each piece.

The first model features a sun design representing the daytime, and the other offers a display that artistically reveals the various phases of the moon against a nighttime background. These delicate, sensuous pieces of jewelry elegantly give the time while gracing the wrist: the daytime model is mounted on a pearly white calfskin strap, and the version celebrating the beauty of the night features a blue satin bracelet. These calfskin and satin bracelets may be replaced in a snap by the satin-finished polished steel bracelet included in the case.

This dazzling, ultra-feminine timepiece, the first of the two Linea models, is a delightful sight designed to be worn in the daytime. Its delicate dial is meticulously crafted in iridescent white mother of- pearl to represent a sun shining over the seaside in the height of summer. The waves and rays of this design are set with 65 diamonds (0.34 ct). This champlevé design begins on the dial and continues in a soft ripple beyond the frame to decorate the bezel of this fine jewelry watch. This subtle, refined solar interpretation of passing time is mounted on a pearly white calfskin bracelet. With its system of interchangeable bracelets, it can also be worn on a satin-finished polished steel bracelet, also included in the case. This radiant incarnation of the Linea spirit is crafted with exquisite care, an invitation to enjoy every moment.

Dreamlike and enticing with a moon glowing in a starry sky, this second of the two Linea watches in satin-finished polished steel is the perfect companion to refined evenings.

The dial represents the night sky with its midnight blue mother-of-pearl sprinkled with set stars, which are painted or embellished with hand-riveted indexes. The stars are reflected in the ocean created by set champlevé waves, of which the edges continue along the bezel like a wave lapping a beach.
