Petite Promesse

I like the morning most of all because it’s the time of our first encounter. She has barely opened her eyes, and already her gaze is on me. Naturally, she always says she is very late, yet she somehow finds the time to dance around and change her clothes three times before getting a foot out the door. She never goes out without putting on her rings, bracelets and bangles, her charms and trinkets, her perfume and lipstick. For her, time is strangely restricted but extendable if required, an elastic space that she inhabits with a rare intensity. Through her eyes, life is a party. With her, there is always something to celebrate! A bouquet of violets found on her desk, a book picked up at a flea-market, a new music track or the countless messages that she sends to her friends before she meets up with them after work: she takes pleasure in everything.

But hold on, is it cocktail time already? I haven’t even told you about the meetings, the taxis caught on the fly, the «I haven’t got time for lunch and anyway I’m on a diet» before finishing off a box of cookies on a corner of the table, or the times she pretended to forget me in order to sneak off for a secret rendez-vous... I am the lucky witness of her marvelous contradictions, her life lived as a succession of magic interludes, her elegance, her freewheeling exploration, and her successes. I’m the one who follows her everywhere, her companion for those extraordinary moments: we hold each other close from morning to night. She is very independent but likes living in a group. She hates making plans but might suddenly say : “Why don’t we go out tonight?” And here I am, little me, so very proud to be on her arm.

A dainty size for a seriously on-trend look

Petite Promesse is the watch for all freespirited ladies who like to live in the fast lane, proclaiming their choices and zapping smoothly from a business task to a post on Instagram, and from an important appointment to organizing a weekend with friends…

Baume & Mercier presents a new Promesse inspired by the hottest current trends such as mini-accessories, and this super-stylish way of wearing our multiple bracelets, each of them symbolizing a unique moment. The ‘big sister’ Promesse watch born in 2014 has passed on all its key traits to Petite Promesse: perfectly balanced proportions and a play on oval and round shapes between the case and dial.

Petite Promesse is now inventing its own game rules with a mini size.

Petite Promesse 10289 - A jewelry watch

Grace and audacity, interpreted by a unique double wrap-around metal bracelet of watchmaking manufacture whose brilliance echoes that of the bezel partially set with diamonds. This model plays with the design codes of the small Baume & Mercier wristwatches created in the 1920s and considered as pieces of jewelry. Their air of elegance, femininity and celebration is revisited here with an original and unexpected contemporary twist.
