Baume & Mercier enjoys international recognition and is the seventh oldest Swiss watchmaking brand. Baume & Mercier, a family saga, has been making its mark on watchmaking history since its inception. We are committed to perpetuating this heritage. Baume & Mercier always strives to make an imprint on its times. The founders, brothers Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume, loyal to their motto “Accept only perfection; only manufacture watches of the highest quality,” set out a very precise definition of the watches to be produced by this firm, established in 1830 and now one of the oldest in Switzerland. and continuing to pass down this know-how to future generations. Made in Switzerland since their foundation, Baume & Mercier watches have constantly won awards at the various international Exhibitions or competitions launched by chronometric observatories. In 1919, the firm was awarded the famous "Poinçon de Genève" or Geneva Hallmark, a token of exceptional craftsmanship and quality.
