Baume et Mercier

The Swiss born company was founded in 1830, by brothers Louis-victor and Celestin Baume. The brothers opened a watch dealership together, in the small village of Les Bois. The watch makers and time piece dealing company grew massively in the next few years, with people recognising the Swiss pair for their quality and innovation of ideas and designs. They earned the motto "accept perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality" and it stuck with them and their products until this very day. The company saw a gap in the market for women’s designer watches at the time, so began making solid gold women's pocket watches in 1869 to fill the gap in women’s designer watches.

Baume & Mercier was soon recognised in ports from New Zealand to Singapore, to the British port of Liverpool. The brothers won awards for the precision of their watches across the globe. Come 1918 the managing director of the company merged with Paul Mercier. This in turn made the company Baume & Mercer as they are known today. The modern times have changed from the humble pocket watch to the majestic wrist time piece. However, the quality and search for perfection stays relentlessly blatant, as Baume & Mercier forever accepting nothing less.
