WHO THEY ARE Formed in 1830 by Louis Vic­tor and Pierre Joseph Ce­lestin Baume, the com­pany got its name from its third­gen­er­a­tion own­ers (1920), fol­low­ing an al­liance with jew­eller and watch­maker Paul Mercier. Its watches are Swiss-made.

CLAIM TO FAME The do­decago­nal (12-sided) case of the Riviera (1973) rev­o­lu­tionised watch aes­thet­ics, while the brand’s iconic Hamp­ton, with a slightly curved case, hugged the wrist more com­fort­ably. WHAT’S HOT The Clifton, a new en­try-level range that com­prises ba­sic au­to­matic and cal­en­dar ver­sions, and a new Linea range with wo­ven leather in­ter­change­able watch straps.
