Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing well!
I’ve been pretty busy lately, I got my driver’s license (yay!) and I am working on my diploma design collection which is where my mind is most of the time. I also recently started yoga again, and this time the studio is literally 5 minutes away from where I live which is super convenient!
Anyway, today I wanted to share a recent purchase I made. I’ve had a Micheal Kors watch for about 5 or 6 years now and I wanted to get myself a new watch. I still love and wear my Micheal Kors one, I just wanted something new to wear!
Switzerland is obviously known for the watches, a lot of big brands are based in Geneva, in the Joux Valley and in Le Locle. Since I didn’t have a clear idea of the type of watch I wanted, I cannot tell you how many websites I browsed haha! But one day, I was on the Baume et Mercier website and I saw that they had recently launched a new collection: the Baume watches. The design is completely different to all the watches that they make, and the price point is a lot lower as well.
I also think that the collection is aimed towards a different audience, younger I guess. I really liked the minimalist design of the watches, which I found more modern that the rest of the watches Baume et Mercier make, less classic.
The watches come in a few different colors, I got the white one with a cream colored strap, made from natural linen and lined with cork. I like that there is a touch of red inside the face of the watch as well. I really hesitated with a navy blue one, but I felt that the white and cream colors would go with more outfits.
According to the Baume et Mercier website, the collection focuses “on three strong design codes: an off-center crown at 12 o’clock in the spirit of the pocket watch; moving lugs for better comfort; and a system of interchangeable straps with buttons for more convenience”. All the timepieces of the collection have a quartz movement and are water resistant up to 30m.
So far I really love it!!
I hope you enjoyed this blog post, please let me know in the comments what kind of watch you have, I’d love to know 🙂
