Illustrious Swiss watchmakers, Baume & Mercier, lent their unique sparkle to the renowned Doha Jewellery and Watches exhibition that took place between the 24th and 28th of February. Held at the Qatar National Convention Centre, the eminent event distinguishes itself from other exhibitions as the chosen venue for international product launches in the world of jewelry and watch design and manufacturing. This year, Baume & Mercier showcased timepieces from their delicate Promesse collection, a classic and precious line that strongly conveys the brand’s commitment to celebrating moments. Baume & Mercier’s presence at the event was made even more special as the watchmaker celebrates a long-standing partnership with Qatar’s leading luxury retailers, the Al Fardan Group.
Baume & Mercier used the perfect platform to highlight two exceptional pieces from the Promesse collection. The first is an emblematic timepiece from the Promesse 30 & 34 MM Auto line, Reference 10183. This is a beautifully balanced aesthetic approach in which the round shape is underscored by the oval bezel, further magnified in this model by the two-tone, steel combined with red gold-capped steel, interpretation of the 30 mm case and the polished/satin-finished bracelet. This timepiece is pervaded by a sense of refinement extending to even the smallest details. Available with a silver-colored dial illuminated by a “drapé guilloché” decor, this Promesse timepiece beats to the rhythm of a traditional mechanical self-winding movement visible through the transparent case-back. A piece of watchmaking jewelry that is understated yet vividly present on the wrist, this watch features a design inspired by the infinity sign to ensure the endless celebration of life’s special moments.
The other timepiece that delighted visitors was from the Promesse 34 MM Quartz collection; reference 10166. Dressed in black for a jewelry watch combining elegance and sophistication, this Promesse model in a 34 mm diameter steel case is lit up by the fire of 61 sparkling diamonds. The oval bezel, enhanced by the deep reflections of genuine black mother-of-pearl, lends a subtle, delicate dimension to the piece. This iconic watch featuring a black dial with a “drapé guilloché” décor punctuated by Roman numerals and diamond-set indexes, is worn on an imposing glossy black alligator strap secured by a traditional pin buckle.
Dedicated to creating and celebrating life’s precious moments, Baume & Mercier ensured that, yet again, they made a memorable appearance at the Doha Jewellery and Watches exhibition.
