Most people wear a watch to keep time; but for the great men and women who view time more and beyond, watches symbolise style, status and engineering. A watch has always been the male’s number one accessory for its masculine attributes encapsulation.
Hence, just any watch will not do for a real man, the right watch is essential for the right man or woman.
There are many brands for watches today for your picking but a really worthy brand for a watch must be that which is not overrated or promising with undefined future.
Today, a good choice of a worthy watch brand is Baume & Mercier with its entry-level luxury pieces which are priced below $5,000. You would be surprised at the many worthy pieces that Baume & Mercier can pull out to woo you; and some will certainly bowl you over.
These are not the common watches you will find displayed in your local drug stores anytime. There is the famous William Baume Collection which was aptly named after its paternal founder who is responsible for the brand’s haute horlogerie timepieces collection. This line of collection includes two exclusive and unique jumping hour timepieces. Once you have seen such a timepiece from Baume & Mercier, you will be hooked to want more of it.
With the fine details and design of a Baume & Mercier timepiece, it does take time to put the components together by hand. Every step of the watch making process is performed manually. Hence, it is not surprising that very limited pieces like 40 pieces of a Baume & Mercier are available.
With the very few pieces, there is little doubt that many will land in the hands of classic timepiece collectors and die-hard fans of Baume & Mercier. As mentioned, once you have put on a Baume & Mercier, you will not want to take it off unless you get another Baume & Mercier.
The unique feature of a Baume & Mercier timepiece lies in its jumping hour movements where the hour display is in “digital” mode, giving one reading every hour. Its minute and seconds registers are uniquely positioned at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock display section respectively.
It may be that the jumping hour movement feature on a Baume & Mercier timepiece, as featured on a William Baume watch, seems to fall in the yesteryear horology but there is a modern twist to that well tested feature in today’s limited-edition William Baume timepieces.
With a long establishment of 180 years on record, the brand Baume & Mercier is favoured to continue manafcturing its fine timepieces for yet another 180, having garnered a strong following over the years, be they celebrities or avid sports players.
Baume & Mercier is under the able management of the Richemont Group which has sufficient resources to continue building the brand. You can dress a Baume & Mercier for about $20,000 which puts it safely in the same high stead as other luxurious brands that the Richemont Group owns. Wearing a Baume & Mercier will definitely have you standing out from the crowd.
