On April 6, at an online contract signing ceremony held by Baume & Mercier and the Hainan Provincial Bureau of International Economic Development, the well-known Swiss watchmaker announced that it will become the Official Timekeeper of the First China International Consumer Products Expo, also known as the Hainan Expo. The Expo will feature the world debut of Baume & Mercier's Riviera wristwatch series.
From April 7 - 20, seven Baume & Mercier timepieces will go on display in succession at Haikou's Mova Plaza, the Haikou Meilan International Airport, Haikou Bay Bund, the Hainan International Convention and Exhibition Center, Sanya Phoenix International Airport, Sanya Atlantis Hotel, and the Haitang Bay CDF Mall. The seven Baume & Mercier Riviera series wristwatches were inspired by the mountains and the seas, making them a perfect match for the popular vacation destination of Hainan Island.
