Since 1830, the Swiss firm of Baume et Mercier has been producing some of the finest and most collectible timekeeping instruments. Worn by celebrities Meg Ryan, Kim Basinger, and Wisteria Lane's Teri Hatcher, their timepieces rank with Omega and other of the world's exclusive watch firms.
The ladies wristwatch featured in today's offering beautifully showcases why Baume et Mercier watches are sought-after by Hollywood actresses, women of distinction, and any woman desiring to wear a well-crafted timepiece.
We were fortunate to acquire it accompanied by its original boxes, certificate, and booklet. Its elegant 14K gold case is in better than near mint condition. Its fine hand-crafted bracelet is in excellent condition. And its luxurious gold dial is just short of mint.
We have installed a new battery and performed any needed servicing. Included with the purchase is a full one-year warranty on the movement and its function.
The original retail price for this watch was approx. $4,000.00 USD. To purchase a comparable Baume & Mercier new would cost approx. $8,000.00 USD.
