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 and continuing to pass down this know-how to future generations.
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.
The symbolism of the gift transcends its material reality. This is how the bond that unites a person to those he loves is sealed, through the promise of an eternal union, the birth of a child, a wedding anniversary, the achievement of a degree or a promotion. Baume & Mercier invites us to remember all these celebrations and to carry them within ourselves, in the same way one wears a cherished object.
For Baume & Mercier, time is far more than a succession of seconds, minutes and hours: time is marked by rare moments with which the brand associates, like a living witness. Life is made of these special, solemn, exceptional moments filled with emotion, that we enjoy celebrating and that we remember forever.
