Today's offering showcases this beautiful ladies Baume et Mercier Riviera watch.
The Riviera line, launched in 1973, became one the company's long beloved models with its distinctive dodecagonal case. The 12 sides represented 12 hours and the geometric expression of innovation, classicism and creativity.
While it presents as a dress watch, it has a water-resistant style design with both screwed down back and crown.
It is in gorgeous condition - a 9.5 out of 10. The case is just short of mint, and the dial, and crystal are all mint. The bracelet presents as mint on the wrist and has light stretch. On the wrist the watch looks nearly like new. The color of the dial showed up just slightly darker in the photos than it appears in person, but it is very close.
A Master Watchmaker has just installed a new battery and performed any needed servicing.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
