    Baume & Mercier, one of the oldest of the Swiss watch manufactures still in operation, has consistently celebrated women and their unique individuality through its timepiece creations. For the new Promesse range it went back in time to the ‘70s.

    Promesse (French for promise) is the first major new line for ladies from B&M in nearly 10 years, and it consists of 14 pieces in two sizes, 30 and 34mm, available in a Swiss-made quartz or automatic movement that can be viewed through a transparent caseback. The collection is inspired by the watches the company created for ladies in the 1970s. Baume & Mercier attributes its success with ladies watches all the way back to Louis-Victor Baume, who, in 1869, created a gold pocket watch gifted to his daughter Mélina.

    The Promesse range of watches combine different decorative and functional elements. All of the pieces feature an oval bezel that surrounds a round dial, the design code of the 1970 models. Dials are in a choice of guilloché design or colourful mother-of-pearl. The indices feature Roman numerals at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. Most use diamond markers on the remaining indices. Diamonds, mother-of-pearl, or red gold (creating a two-tone effect) are also used to further enhance the bezels.

    Promesse watches are for modern, independent women, attached to a certain idea of refinement. This new collection resonates like a commitment and emerges as a link between the self and the universe around us.

    The watches come on watch straps available in stainless steel, a two-tone combination (stainless steel and plated red gold), white satin, or black alligator. The new Promesse range will be available from September at select retailers and online with prices starting at $1,900.
