Baume & Mercier, iconic Swiss brand watchmakers since 1830, continues to show its timeless appeal in the 21st century.

Famed photographer Peter Lindbergh captured “Life is About Moments” for the Baume & Mercier celebration campaign with a special focus on women. Baume & Mercier pieces reveal each of the many facets of their personalities; to capture their desires, to convey their emotions and to enable them to live their dreams.

In 2014 Promesse was created as an ode to elegance and designed to gracefully mold feminine curves with finely mastered design. It plays on light through the subtle nesting of a round shape within an oval, drawn from the rich Baume & Mercier legacy of ladies’ watches. For the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2015, Baume & Mercier has enriched the Promesse line with an irresistibly charming piece: a diamond-set polished stainless steel watch adorned with a natural mother-of pearl bezel.

An iconic timepiece encapsulating the Baume & Mercier know-how, this Promesse set with 61 diamonds on a steel 34 mm-diameter case vividly expresses its expertise in the realm of jewelry timepieces. Its intensely feminine natural white mother-of-pearl bezel emphasizes its oval design and enhances the tone of the silver-colored dial with its “drapé” guilloché decor, illuminated by the presence of Roman numerals and diamond-set indexes. Available on a polished stainless steel bracelet, this Promesse plays on its pristine purity to recall the most precious commitments in a woman’s life.
