Today's offering showcases this beautiful original mens Baume et Mercier Riviera watch in mint condition.
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.
Baume and Mercier gave the Riviera watches a number of different dials, and we like this one best. Silver with subtle guilloche texturing and gold Roman numerals, it is particularly elegant and classy.
It is all original and in gorgeous condition. It presents as a 9.8 out of 10. The case is just short of perfect mint with the slightest wear to the back, and the dial, and crystal are all mint. The full length bracelet is mint. It is gift quality - on the wrist the watch looks mint.
It is functioning perfectly and any needed servicing has been performed.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
