Stendhal said: “Beauty is nothing other than the promise of happiness.” Could the writer have been right? Could a beautiful and timeless watch be a seal of commitment between two people and the promise of happiness? When it comes to love, the imagination runs wild. Baume & Mercier radiate this sentimental sermon in an entire ladies collection. The timepiece comes in two diameters (30 or 34mm) with a self-winding or quartz movement wrapped in steel, plain, with diamonds or blended with rose gold. The simplicity of Promesse with its guilloché silver-tone or mother-of pearl dial means it’s love at first sight. True to the collection’s key features, four Roman numerals are surrounded by baton or diamond indices. Spear-shape hands glide above to track the hours and minutes with a slim seconds hand. What makes this timepiece so spellbinding? Not only may it dazzle with diamonds but the oval bezel plays with the case’s round curves. Price between 1,750 CHF to 6,500 CHF
