Baume and Mercier Watches are a superb example of Swiss watch making. The company’s commitment to excellence dates back to 1834 when the history of the company began. The original founders of Baume and Mercier Watches were the Baume family in the small village of Les Bois, in the Swiss Jura. They worked hard at perfecting the art of watch making and proved their dedication when they won the 1893 timing award at the Kew-Garden Observatory in Britain, the pinnacle of this profession.
In 1912 the scion of the Baume family, William, met Paul Mercier, a watchmaker and jeweler in Geneva and proposed a joint venture. Baume and Mercier Watches was the result of this collaboration and proved hugely successful. In 1921 they received the highly coveted Poincon de Genève award, in recognition of the Baume and Mercier’s commitment to flawless and superior quality in horology.
After World War Two, Baume and Mercier Watches focused their attention on creating well crafted conventional men’s timepieces along with more sporty chronographs, and exquisitely elegant ladies jewelry watches. Baume and Mercier Watches also produced one of the world’s thinnest calendar watches boasting a mini-rotor which was a huge success in the competitive world of watches. Another claim to fame for Baume and Mercier Watches was the Riviera watch. Launched in 1973, the Riviera was a sports watch with an unusual 12 sided bezel that proved indestructible after it was mounted on the wheel of a BMW M1 before the Le-Mans 24 hr race began. It survived the extremely high speeds and accelerations, the centrifugal force of turning wheels, and the intense temperature of overheated breaks with the same precision at the start.
