The watch's soft lines, sensual curves and confident luxury epitomizes femininity at the highest level. Its characteristic details, including the renowned bezel with its prominent numerals, make it one of the most easily identifiable of all women's watches.In 2000, the concept of the interchangeable bracelet gave this watch its highly characteristic aesthetic and made Linea the iconic watch of the Baume & Mercier Maison d'Horlogerie, thus establishing it among the brand's other decidedly charismatic watches such as Marquise, Galaxy, and Catwalk.The object of our affectionLinea remains universally adored, always celebrated, and never forgotten. Today, its new interpretation constitutes an event in and of itself.A winning come-back with a line that remains loyal to the high standards of femininity: a domed crystal, a rounded shape and fluid lines highlighted in this new model by a continuous bevel on the case and the bracelet.Among the characteristics which differentiate the new Linea from its previous memorable incarnations is the charm of its enlarged size, its polished and satined finishes and a redesigned bracelet. Other upgrades: the addition of the date and the second as well as riveted indexes. Finally, Linea is guaranteed to be water-resistant up to 50 meters.A bracelet with some tricks up its sleeveMetal was selected as the material for the bracelet, which boasts a remarkably comfortable design in perfect harmony with the aesthetic of this unique watch.
