Baume & Mercier Creates Historical Perspective At Timecrafters 2012
TimeCrafters 2012, a New York-based exhibition of the world's finest watches, offers luxury watch brands an opportunity to showcase their most emblematic watches - new and vintage. The exhibition is open to the public September 14-15, at the Park Avenue Armory in NYC. At this year's show, Baume & Mercier dips into its archives dating back to 1830 to pay homage to styles of the past that have inspired today's collections.
Among the pieces making their US debut are a stunning silver pocket watch with key-wound mechanical movement from 1915; a creative art nouveau style women's platinum watch set with diamonds, circa 1925 and a 1940 square watch crafted in 18-karat yellow gold with a leather strap. This beautiful timepiece served as the inspiration piece for the now iconic Hampton Collection.

Other men's highlights include a 1960 watch that was the inspiration piece for the brand's highly regarded Capeland Collection. Also dating to 1960 is a pink gold watch with leather strap and hand-wound chronograph mechanical movement that is similar in style.
In the women's category, the brand exhibit will include two stunning women's watches from 1950: A cylindrically shaped Marquise watch with a hand-wound mechanical movement crafted in 18-karat yellow gold, set with diamonds; and a petite, steel square watch with a hand-wound mechanical movement and white leather strap. Lastly, on display will be a 1998 piece – the first Linea watch, created in gold-plate with a gold bracelet and housing a quartz movement. This watch was the inspiration for the newest Linea Collection that is taking the market by storm.
