Trend Spotting: Baume & Mercier
I own and wear only one watch, it was a custom piece that once belonged to my grandmother and beyond it being rather sparkly and pretty, it has a whole lot of sentimental value. That being said, there are three watch brands that I totally covet. Cartier, Chanel (white J 12, in case your reading this Darling Husband), and Baume & Mercier. When these images of the new ladies Linea Day & Night limited edition watches and the latest men’s watches from the Clifton collection landed in my inbox, I couldn’t help but share them. This venerable Swiss watch maker has been making some seriously lust worthy timepieces since 1830 and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t try to routinely “borrow” my mother’s Hampton watch whenever I’m home in Philadelphia. Even though my watch is rather delicate, I love the chunky look of men’s watches and both of these Clifton timepieces would look amazing paired with a pair of my beloved skinny black pants, a tailored blazer, and some impossibly high heels.
