Brief information and technical specifications:

About Baume & Mercier:

In 1830, Baume & Mercier was founded as “Frères Baume” by two brothers called Célestin Baume and Louis-Victor. They opened a watch dealership in a village called Les Bois, located in the Swiss Jura region in western Switzerland close to the French and German border. Baume & Mercier – originally Frères Baume, grew rapidly as a result of innovations and extraordinary good reputation.

Baume & Mercier has been independent most of its history but has been a subsidiary of the Richemont Group since 1988.
