Although the Swiss watchmaker has fairly recently updated its line of ladies watches with the beautiful ladies’ Baume & Mercier Linea automatic model that featured a nicely finished stainless steel case and a mother-of-pearl dial, the guys at B&M decided to introduce yet another iteration of the watch, which is now presented in another, more expensive combination of materials. Called Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic (Ref. 10073,) the watch combines solid gold and stainless steel. I will only state once again that the main selling point of the watch is not the way its fixed bezel is finished or the movement is decorated, but its proprietary interchangeable bracelet system that lets you easily swap the bracelet for a strap and back depending on the dress you wear tonight or simply feel an urge to change something about you.
Since it was less than six weeks ago that we have published the “initial impressions” review regarding the refreshed Linea line (see the link above,) I won’t waste your and my own time retelling you how beautiful the watch is: it is indeed really beautiful and very elegant.
Again, the only difference of the elegant fake Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic (Ref. 10073)from its predecessor is the new combination of materials that adorn this timekeeper.
According to the watchmaker (or at least that’s how I understood them,) the new timepiece is going to be powered by either the well-known ETA 2892-A2 or its high-quality clone Sellita SW300. Both are automatic and have their oscillating weights branded and decorated with Cotes de Geneva pattern.
As you can see on the photos, the updated version of the Baume & Mercier replica watch has its fixed steel bezel and central parts of the bracelet that were made from the same metal swapped in favor of finely polished rose gold. Ditto the elegant setting crown.
