Baume & Mercier launches iléa High Jewellery
Posted By LMD Fashion Squad On October 12, 2010 @ 4:29 pm In News |
Over one thousand diamonds sparkling against a dusky background: Baume & Mercier creates the High Jewelry collection, ultra-feminine ilea model in a fascinating chiaroscuro effect.
This unique model, issued in a strictly limited edition, mysteriously alternates between the intense matt blackness of a white gold frame coated with a PVD surface treatment, and the luminous sparkle of a full setting composed of 970 diamonds. This original and daring alliance between darkness and light accentuates Baume & Mercier’s undeniable creativity and expertise in designing ladies’ High Jewellery models.
The iléa High Jewellery model is the special in a noble lineage of Baume & Mercier ladies watches. The brand already distinguished itself in this field during the 1940s with the legendary Marquise watch, and in the 1970s with its Stardust, Mimosa and Galaxie models that won awards the most prestigious international jewelry competition (the Baden Baden Golden Rose in 1972 and 1973).
The stunningly beautiful iléa High Jewellery model is a vivid symbol of this proud heritage. It perpetuates the brand’s tradition of creating a limited-edition jewelry model every year by giving full creative rein to the talents of its Design Studio team.
Baume & Mercier brand name, is fitted between the gem-set dial base and the upper sapphire crystal. On the bracelet, a convex sapphire crystal also covers the gem-set inner links, thereby preserving both the glittering sparkle of the diamonds and the graceful curve of the band.
For this exceptional creation, the watch diameter has been enlarged to 34 mm (compared with 30 mm for the classic iléa model) so as to accommodate a mechanical self-winding movement.
The spectacular oscillating weight, appearing in the same matt black shade as the case and adorned with Côtes de Genève, may be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.
Thus arrayed in its dazzling garment of light and shade, the unique iléa High Jewellery watch is a perfect illustration of the blend of technical and esthetic creativity characterizing Baume & Mercier watches since 1830.
