Life is illuminated by celebrations –and not just by major events, but also those countless moments of simple pleasure shared with family and friends, made special by the people we’re with. Baume and Mercier joins its clients in celebrating those moments by keeping them fresh through the lasting memories evoked by Baume & Mercier timepieces. Birthdays, weddings, births, anniversaries, graduations, and major professional milestones are just some of the pivotal moments in life’s journey that are celebrated around the world by the gift of a Baume & Mercier timepiece.
The details of each timepiece from Baume & Mercier’s collections –whether the Hamptons, Classima, Linea, or Capeland –are carefully chosen to ensure each watch is both effortlessly elegant to wear and highly individual in aesthetics. This combination makes Baume & Mercier watches highly versatile and valued companions in daily life –immediately evoking the sense of closeness and warmth enjoyed in the presence of friends and loved ones.
Though a watch marks the passage of time, it’s also a reminder of the timelessness of life’s riches memories. The emotion of shared memories evoked by a watch from Baume & Mercier is the fulfillment of the promise of our motto: Life is about moments.
A fine timepiece from Baume & Mercier develops an especially intimate relationship with its owner, as its spirit of relaxed elegance gives it the versatility to be the perfect companion throughout life’s journey.
Since a Baume & Mercier watch is often given as a memento of one of life’s most important events, it’s only fitting that it can carry a specific message that makes it even more personal and unique.
A date, name, or words commemorating that special event on which the watch entered the owner’s life can thus be made a permanent part of the watch itself. Baume & Mercier is proud to offer its custom engraving service on the case back of the watch and in 2012, to offer an even larger space than before to give maximum scope for expression of a personal message or memento.
The engraving service offered by Baume & Mercier allows a watch to carry an inscription that marks it forever as a highly personal accessory that is a tangible link to a celebrated moment in the past, and a promise of future moments of happiness.
Valentine’s day: the gift of Love
Valentine’s Day is the most intimate of all celebrations: a day when the motif of interwined hearts, and the beauty of the rose, symbolizing desire, come together to express both the passion felt in the moment, and the enduring power of love. For centuries Valentine’s Day has been one in which men and women, lovers, and husbands and wives, express not only romantic love, but also the deep bonds of affection uniting families as well as intimate friends.
In celebration of this holiday that reminds us of the unbreakable bonds forged by love, Baume & Mercier timepieces are an especially apt gift, acknowledging the preciousness not just of each passing moment, but the joy to be found in moments spent together with loved ones. The gift of a Baume & Mercier watch on Valentine’s Day commemorates both the power of love to arise in an instant, and its ability to forge ties that last a lifetime.
Though all Baume & Mercier timepieces are superbly suited to express the feelings of closeness and intimacy honored by Valentine’s Day celebrations, the Hamptons Collection is especially suited to the holiday. Dedicated to satisfying the discerning tastes of both men and women, the Hamptons Collection, with its deep ties to the spirit of seaside living and the air of camaraderie it engenders, is a perfect expression of esteem and affection when given to either a man or woman.
On this very special holiday, when the love felt for all those closest to us and most cherished by us is celebrated, the gift of a Baume & Mercier timepiece is a gift as special as the person who receives it –a gift that will be valued for a lifetime.
At once timeless and casually elegant, the Hampton line for both men and women is the epitome of intimate harmony. This stylish rectangular collection, based on a vintage 1940’s historic piece, offers a wonderful combination of refined design and alluring relaxed living. The Hampton line perhaps most strongly embraces Baume & Mercier’s inherent DNA and philosophies: seaside living, family values, warmth and authenticity.
The entrancing Hampton collection deftly blends a highly distinctive rectangular architectured case shape with strong lines and features that reflect today’s casual living. The angled form produces a prism effect that offers a new different appeal to the watch depending on the angle one looks at it from. These architectural elements easily reflect the grand homes that line the Hamptons shorelines. The end result is a line rich with emotion and ready to time the most important of life’s moments.
