Watchmaking Heritage and Know-How since 1830
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.
"Accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality"
187 years of Heritage
The history of Baume & Mercier is one worthy of a great saga. When I took over, it was recounted to me by Simone Gaudard, Louis-Victor Baume's great-grand-daughter, one of the founders of our watchmaking firm.
I was fascinated and delved into our archives and collection of historic documents which took me through almost two centuries of history.
This living memory conveys the values that I personally adhere to: excellence, authenticity, open-mindedness and generosity.
Making Baume & Mercier the essential partner of special moments in life - a birthday, a first job, a reunion - those that make the heart race in all cultures and all continents, is the goal I pursue with fervor and deep pride.
