The Baume & Mercier Promesse Moon Phase is like a dreamscape rolled into a single fabulous timepiece, so you can carry your world of fantasy wherever you go. Since it is exclusively made for women, it instantly matches most of the essentials required by women in their chosen watches. We’re not only talking about the polished stainless steel case of the watch, which usually is fabulous enough for a timepiece, but this one takes us to another level: DIAMONDS.
The case features a row of diamonds in both sides, aligned to form a crescent shape, totaling 15 sparkling diamonds and 0.38 carats on either side. As if that wasn’t enough glamour, brilliant-cut diamonds and six silvered pearls were used to accentuate the indexes and quarter hours, while the minute and hour hands exude classiness as well with their rhodium-plated Dauphine design. To top it all off, a beveled aperture shows a crescent moon silhouette with stars and a moon against its black backdrop.
Aside from the breathtaking gorgeousness of the design, this timepiece carries the precise Ronda 708 quartz movement, and is water resistant up to 165 feet/50 meters.
While we acknowledge the truth behind famous Marilyn Monroe song “Diamonds are a Girl’s Bestfriend,” it is to some extent applicable to just a portion of the women population. Some find the design of this timepiece too tacky or an overkill of sparkle, especially when it’ll be used for less dressy events.
