BAUME & MERCIER Riviera
Baume & Mercier’s story begins in 1830. Brothers Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume opened a comptoir horloger (watch dealership) in Les Bois, a village in the Swiss Jura.
The Baume brothers’ business grew rapidly, and true to their motto, “accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality”, they forged a fine reputation through the creation of exceptional timepieces featuring the latest innovations.
Keenly aware of the potential represented by new territories, the company set up a Branch in London under the name “Baume Brothers”. It soon expanded throughout the British Empire. By the late 19th century, the company had already acquired a solid international reputation as becoming an inescapable watchmaking player broad.
At the time, the brand was best known for its chronographs and grand complication models. The company won ten Grand Prix awards and seven gold medals at international exhibition across the entire world. Its timepieces demonstrated a rare accuracy. In 1892, Baume won a competition held by the Kew Observatory near London with a chronometer pocket-watch equipped with a tourbillon movement of which the precision was to remain unmatched for over ten years.
At the beginning of the 1920s, the company director William Baume joined forces with Paul Mercier. Together, they founded Baume & Mercier, Genève, in 1918. The firm soon became one of the most active in the field of wristwatches by offering remarkably balanced special-shaped models.
In 1919, it was awarded the highest international distinction of the time in the shape of the “Poinçon de Genève” quality hallmark.
During the Roaring Twenties and throughout the Art Deco period, the brand established its style and left an indelible mark on watch design.
Paul Mercier knew that it was essential for the brand to live in step with its time and embrace change.
The firm grasped the importance of women’s emancipation and came to regard their desires as an unquenchable source of inspiration.
In the late 1940s, Baume & Mercier launched one of its most successful models: the Marquise. Impelled by this creative momentum, the brand creates a number of exquisitely creative and amazingly modern ladies’ watches. It thereby proved that watches for women are not merely miniaturized and simplistic interpretations of masculine models.
At the same time, Baume & Mercier was becoming known among a public looking for new products, and launched its first innovatively shaped wristwatches. These chic, urban watches kept step with life’s many special moments by embodying an art of living instilled with inimitable elegance.
During the 1950s and 60s, the company, constantly in pursuit of the equilibrium symbolized by the Greek letter Phi – the current Baume & Mercier logo – laid the groundwork of what is now considered the archetypal traditional round watch. It thus launched various chronographs equipped with functions such as moon phase or triple date displays.
Constantly demonstrating its creativity, Baume & Mercier unveiled innovatively shaped timepieces during the 1970s, such as the Galaxie and the Stardust, which won prestigious international awards including the Golden Rose of Baden-Baden. In 1973, Baume & Mercier brought out the Riviera, one of the world’s first steel sports watches. In 1988, the firm joined the Vendôme group, now Richemont, and enriched its collection with a number of successful models which immediately established themselves as the brand’s flagship lines.

A bit of fantasy ~ remember whenPosted: December 22, 2022 Filed under: Jewelry, lingerie | Tags: BDSM, D/s, dievca, Elegant, erotic, expensive, gem stonges, influence, jewels, Lingerie, Presentation Outfit, Shopping, Undergarments, Victoria Secret Leave a comment
Starting in 1996, Victoria’s Secret set out to create the most expensive bras in the world. Encrusted with diamonds and other precious stones, these beautiful creations have been crafted with the help of the best jewelers in the world.
Unfortunately, Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bras usually only last for a year. Without a seller, they go back to the jeweler, where they’re dismantled. That hasn’t stopped them from taking over the imagination of millions. See the most expensive bras in the world.
Red Hot Fantasy Bra – $15 million:
Worn by Gisele Bündchen for the 2000 Victoria’s Secret show, the Red Hot Fantasy Bra was the most expensive ever made, but the price tag included the panty. Using 1,300 jemstones, international jewelry designer Mouawad created a stunning bra that truly earned it’s “Fantasy” name and included 300 carats of Thai rubies.
The Victoria’s Secret show ha long been a high-profile branding vehicle, a glossy commercial-meets-fashion fantasy in which supermodels strut down the rundway to pop star musical accompaniment. But ratings were declining. In Dec. 2018, the Done+Dusted-produced Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on ABC, which featured Shawn Mendes and Bebe Rexha, brought in 3.3 million viewers. That’s down from 6.7 million in 2016 and 9.7 million in 2013.
So the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the Fantasy Bra’s were canceled in 2019.

For living in NYC, dievca loves color. It must be a Midwestern leftover – but she sprinkles color accents around her NYC black daily. And when she has a Gala – no LBD – COLORPOP!
Anyways, this watch came to her attention:
Then she ran into sticker shock – $24,000 (the bottom watch is $26,700).
Apparently its a Rolex Watch with a Ceramic Coating which voids the Rolex Warranty – here’s the description from PRIVATE LABEL LONDON:
Spekt Sorbet Collection, Unique Ceramic Coating, Also available in six other colours
What each watch comes with
Original Rolex: Warranty Card, Warranty Booklet, Swing Tag + Two Year Private Label Warranty Card

Finally something good – or so she thoughtPosted: November 27, 2021 Filed under: Dresses, lingerie | Tags: Advertisement, Agent Provocateur, BDSM, D/s, dievca, Elegant, erotic, expensive, Presentation Outfit, Shopping, submissive 2 Comments
dievca spotted this lovely photo from an Agent Provocateur email. she was excited to see an edge and presetntation that has been missing from the company’s recent offerings. she misses the quirk, sassiness and humor they used to offer.
Then she clicked through to see the item…
What dievca thought was a body suit or soft corset turn out to be a dress with mini ruffles and lace. At $1545 only the back is of interest. Yawn~

Can you put a price on elegance? Carine GilsonPosted: January 21, 2021 Filed under: lingerie | Tags: BDSM, D/s, dievca, Elegant, erotic, expensive, fashion, Presentation Outfits, Sexy, Shopping, submissive, Undergarments Leave a comment
“As day subtly turns to night and the hours steadily string by,
the dream, at once airy and elegant, comes within reach.
– Carine Gilson
Carine Gilson’s story harks back to the 1990s. A freshly-minted graduate of Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied fashion, Carine Gilson discovered Maille France, a small Brussels atelier that manufactured fine ladies’ underslips. She immediately fell in love with the world of lingerie.
Carine Gilson decided to acquire the workshop and, with sheer dedication, set out to work on silk, lace, and exceptional materials. In the fashion of the boundlessly creative and refined lingerie creations of yore, Carine Gilson embraced this new adventure, taking her passion to the next level to create unique, breathtaking pieces in her Brussels atelier.
The designer soon launched her couture lingerie line, Carine Gilson, a synonym for a world filled with incomparable beauty.
In no time, the press and finer stores from Japan, England, Italy, and America came calling. Buyers from renowned stores recognized the rare quality of these creations, which conjure the bygone enchantment of times past within our changed, modern world.
The prestige of Carine Gilson’s lingerie has grown quickly thanks to the unwavering excellence of her creations. In the House of Carine Gilson, every piece is lovingly crafted by hand. Perfection and finesse espouse rigor and passion. Lace incrustation is raised to an art form.
PatheticPosted: April 14, 2019 Filed under: Clothing, Entertainment | Tags: BDSM, custom, D/s, definitions, dievca, expensive, Life, Love, Neiman Marcus, NYC, Shopping, submissive, sweatshirt Leave a comment
If you describe someone or something as pathetic, you mean that they make you feel impatient or angry, often because they are weak or not very good.
dievca is calling herself pathetic….not in the real sense. In the sense that she knows she is weak and she is laughing at herself.
The custom $400 sweatshirt…The sweatshirt itself is Atelier Notify and $110 — so the custom graphics (only a silk screen – not embroidery, mind you) is $300+.
That dievca is even thinking about this is bad…
Now you know why she calls herself pathetic…
To resist the urge to buy — dievca is finishing off the last of her taxes, grocery shopping and visiting to three open houses on the UWS. Housing prices are going down and it might be time to buy~
Umm, the sweatshirt would be cheaper than buying a co-op. Co-op will last longer, hopefully. 😁
Have a lovely Sunday!
