Baume & Mercier 8729 Riviera Watch

A regal, 1920s-esque style luxury watch from Baume & Mercier. This deal of the day is $899.99 (62% off the $2390 retail price). Sale ends at midnight tonight (EST).

One of the most ironic periods in history is the era of the 1930s. It was a time when the US was in an economic ruin, yet that's the time when three of its (then) tallest buildings were constructed. In 1930, the Chrysler Building battled the Bank of Manhattan for the title of tallest skyscraper. When both buildings were about done, it looked like the Bank of Manhattan had won, but at the last minute, the Chrysler Building raised it's tall shaft which was built within the building in secret, and stole the title away. From then on, every time someone gave something to someone else that screwed them over, they said you "got the shaft." True story. Sucks to be the bank of Manhattan. And it also sucks to be the Chrysler building, because less than a year after that, the Empire State Building was finished and took the title, which it kept until 1970. Moral of the story? Always try to be better than everyone else (not sure if that’s a good moral, but that’s all I got). That's why we're offering today's daily deal, the Baume and Mercier Riviera Midsized watch, at such a huge discount. If we don't discount more than everyone else, we might as well give ourselves the shaft (and self inflicted shafts hurt more). This luxury watch is a true beauty, with a regal 1920's-esque style reminiscent of the Empire State building herself. So add it to your cart today, and take satisfaction knowing that you hold the Empire State building of watches on your wrist at all times (much better than the Burj Khalifa watch. Trust me. I don't care how tall they built that thing). does not ship outside the USA and its territories. Shoppers from outside the USA may place orders for delivery within the United States. Product ships 3-7 business days after order.

The Baume & Mercier is one of the oldest and finest watch making companies.

In 1592 Native of Franche Comté, the Baume family settled in the Les Bois village in the Swiss Jura Mountains from 1542. Carrying out watch-manufacturing work (name given to subcontracting in watch-making at the time), the Baume's passed on their knowledge of watch mechanisms from father to son.

In 1834, at the heart of a century marked by extraordinary scientific and industrial progress, brothers Louis Victor and Pierre-Joseph-CĂ©lestin Baume founded the house of the same name and registered it as an agency in the Les Bois village, in the Swiss Jura Mountains. There was only one slogan: "Accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality". To this day, that slogan still stands as the company’s hallmark and ongoing mission. They continue to make watches to this day of the highest quality that are both the envy and the admiration of the timepiece world.

By 1918 the Baume family joined together with the Mercier family, whose watch designs and artistic abilities were exceptional, and this merger began the Baume et Mercier watch company. It was not long before the Baume & Mercier (guess that "&" was put in there for us Americans , the "original" name "Baume et Mercier.") watch company became prominent for their chronographs and precise watch timekeeping mechanisms.

Today, Baume & Mercier continues to produce their branded classic and sporty watch styles in quality timepieces to distinguish itself and surprise with a successful combination of watch making expertise and technological innovation.
