Most often when we think of Swiss watches, for some unknown reason, we think in terms of watches for men. Unfortunately, this is far from the case! Baume & Mercier has a marvelous line of sophisticated and elegant women’s Swiss watches that are among the absolute finest in the world. The Diamant collection features 15 of the loveliest watches imaginable, and each is crafted with world renowned Swiss precision clockworks.
Water Resistant Steel Cases
Whether set with diamonds or in a simple steel case, Baume & Mercier Diamant watches are water resistant up to 30 meters. Some watches are water resistant up to 50 meters, but those would be marked accordingly on the back of the case. Since these are top of the line designer watches, it is imperative to take special care in and around water as well as when cleaning the watch itself. Although the case is water-resistant, it is not advisable to adjust the position of the crown or push any buttons to set the time or date while submersed. This could cause leakage which could damage the precise inner workings.
Diamant Straps in Leather, Steel and Gold
There is a strap to suit literally any woman’s taste or lifestyle and they range from leather to steel to steel and gold. Because all parts, including the straps are proprietary to the brand and design, Baume & Mercier recommend that you only take your watch to an authorized service center for repair or adjustment. The company further recommends that after swimming in salt or chlorinated water, you simply rinse the watch and band under clear water to protect it from damage.
Inner Swiss Precision
If there is one thing the Swiss are famous for is their classic precision watch and clockworks. Baume & Mercier watches are guaranteed to keep time within 1 minute annually. Only the Swiss could craft a watch as precise as that, considering that you are talking about less than one-sixth of a second! However, there are outside factors which can affect the workings of the watch, among which are magnetic fields. Should you be subjected to a strong magnetic field at any time while wearing the watch, there is a potential that the inner steel works will become magnetized and the watch would need to be demagnetized by an authorized service center.
Some Baume & Mercier watches are manual or automatic, but the Diamant line are all battery operated with sapphire quartz movement. It is recommended that batteries be replaced immediately when they are worn down so that they don’t corrode and destroy the inside of your watch. The average lifespan of a battery for a Diamant watch is approximately two to three years and any Baume & Mercier After Sales Service Center is able to change batteries and service the watch at the same time. Because these remarkable Swiss watches are top of the line designer pieces, it is always advisable that only authorized locations service your watch.
If you are looking for a Swiss watch that is both elegant and fashionable, any of the lovely Diamant collection would be ideal. Beginning at around $1400, these watches are worth every penny and so much more. No other country can boast precision clockworks like the Swiss, and the Diamant collection is the epitome of perfection. Whether looking for a gift for that special lady in your life or simply as a watch that carries with it a name and an appeal second to none, Baume & Mercier Diamant watches are the best to be found – anywhere for any price.
