Baume Mercier 8739 Diamant Women’s Diamond Watch Review

Baume Mercier 8739 DiamantBelow you’ll find my Baume et Mercier Diamant 8739 review. Keep reading to learn all the features you’ll want to know before purchasing the watch.

Baume et Mercier’s Diamant collection is a fine collection of women’s luxury watches, and there’s no doubt that this watch is a trendy addition to the distinguishable collection.

That being said, I also understand that some women really aren’t into the whole ‘diamond set’ thing, and that you might think that any watch with diamonds is unwearable. Hey, I understand, but I truly feel that the Baume Mercier 8739 Diamant exemplifies what a subtle women’s luxury watch should be.

If you really really don’t like diamonds I’m not promising that you’ll love the watch, but take a look, because I was impressed and I think you will be too.

Baume & Mercier Women’s 8739 Diamant Diamond Bracelet Watch

Below you’ll find everything you’d want to know about the Diamant model 8739 ladies watch, so that you’ll know exactly what you’re getting before you decide to buy it.

ETA Swiss Made Quartz Movement (F06.111) – Baume et Mercier uses ETA movements for every single one of their watches in production today, with the exception of the William Baume’s I believe.

I don’t know for sure which model, although I’m inclined to guess it’s something similar to the ETA F06.111, if that’s not the exact model.

Diamond Set Stainless Steel Case – The case is sized small and measures 34.1mm x 22.05mm. It’s a slim bracelet style watch, and the rectangular design with the Diamant Collection’s distinct lines looks sleek and feminine.

As for the diamonds themselves, they’re actually quite small. If it gives you any idea, the total carat weight of all the diamonds in the watch is .38 carats.

Even though the diamonds are small, there are quite a few of them and they’re definitely visible. There are a total of 15 diamonds in the watch, 14 on the front of the watch and one set into the stainless steel screw down crown on the side.

I’d definitely say that the diamonds add feminine appeal to the watch in a very pleasing way. I actually like that they’re small, because it keeps the design from being too, as I like to say, “Blingy”.

The Diamant 8739 has a screw down case back with a sapphire crystal watch window protecting the dial. The case is also water resistant to 30 meters.

Whatever your feelings on the watch, the end result is a super contemporary, and yet sleek and feminine luxury women’s watch that stands true to the Diamant Collection. Not only that, but thanks to it’s small size it’s extremely wearable on even the most petite of womens’ arms. The Diamant style lines that distinguish the entire collection exemplify a fashionable women’s luxury watch and whether or not you like diamonds, Baume et Mercier has certainly pulled it off with the 8739 model.

Stainless Steel Bracelet – This is what really turns the watch from a watch to a jewelry/time-piece hybrid. It has polished end links with brushed inner links, both stainless steel. Thanks to the overall slim nature of the watch, the bracelet is very feminine despite being entirely metal.

There’s an adjustable triple folding clasp that secures the strap to your wrist. It’s comfortable and secure, and although it’s complex the first time you size it, in the end the adjustability is worth the initial complexity.

Shimmering White Dial – This is the subtle part of the watch that brings the entire design together…Sort of like a good coffee table! True to the description, the dial really does seem to shimmer. The stainless steel indexes and hands that line the dial hold true to the subtlety of the dial.

The Baume Mercier Diamant 8739 has steel Arabic numerals at 9, 12 and 3 with a date window at 6. There are minute and hour hands (also steel), but no seconds hand, at the rest of the 5 minute increments are just plain indexes.

The only thing on the dial other than the indexes and hands is the “Baume & Mercier Geneve” text, and the end result is an extremely easy to read dial that looks beautiful upon inspection, but is graceful enough that it isn’t at all distracting.

My Verdict of the Baume & Mercier Women’s 8739 Diamant

In the end I feel that Baume et Mercier has done a great job of creating a subtle, sleek and most importantly, WEARABLE diamond set women’s watch. The Baume Mercier 8739 Diamant watch is a contemporary luxury watch with a progressive profile and I think it’s one of my favorite diamond set watches that Baume Mercier makes.

As always, thanks for reading on WhatWatches.com, and I hope that you got what you were looking for!
