With a name is as poignant and as endearing as Baume & Mercier's newest timepiece for the ladies, who would not be charmed? Petite Promisse is a lovely, poetic timepiece that narrates the little details which makes one's day more special. Like a friend with pinkie fingers intertwined for a secret pledge, it is companion for all seasons, a friend for all times.

In this series of watches, Baume & Mercier peeks through the mundane, everyday life and swirls in a bit of luxury–making each day marvellous with a stylish watch, ready to be worn whatever the occasion. With a small, light diameter of 22mm, it can rest easily on a woman's wrists, decoratively hanging on a double wrap bracelet that makes it more alluring. However, its simplicity is not common; Petite Promesse is embedded with luxurious cut diamonds around its polished silver case. Add to that the rainbow-like reflections upon its mother-of-pearl dial.

The design is helmed from the vintage watches popularly used by ladies in the 1970s. There's also a visual grace in the harmony of shapes: the forms of oval and round, interlocked with different studs, exudes a classic, refined style. There are 22 top Wesselton gems, all tucked inside the polished oval bezel for a sparkling feature. Two more diamonds, found at the 12 c'clock and 6 o'clock indexes, add more to its luxe.

Petite Promesse runs on Quartz movement; yet its fragile, demure built packs a punch. It is made to stand up to 50 metres of water.

There are three versions of this timepiece, each made to delight every woman. A jewellery watch, held by a diamond-quilted metal bracelet, is perfect for formal wear. The blue-bracelet version comes off with a strong, electrifying tones of bright azure tones, perfect for the trendy and outgoing chic who loves to defy the odds. Last but not least is the orange calfskin strap, offering a bright hue for women with great enthusiasm and cheerful positivity.
