The simple watch dial has 11 quality diamonds totaling .04 carats adorning it. At 6 O’ clock position, you will find a date window with contrasting shades of black and white.
The watch comes with two choices of bracelets and you can choose either the stainless steel version or the two toned version. Both these options are really comfortable on your wrists. The security clasps at the end of these bracelets are triple folding by design and has a very user friendly construction that helps you to remove very easily with your own bare hands, without any need for any screw driver or any other such device. As Baume & Mercier has a wide array of straps and bracelets to suit any occasion or dress, this feature of the watch complements the desire of their women customers to have a variety of choices to alter their watches.
