With a 188-year history, Baume & Mercier has built a reputation for creating accessible luxury Swiss watches in recent years. The brand’s story begins in 1830 with the founding of a family business by brothers Louis-victor and Célestin Baume who opened a watch dealership in Les Bois, a village in the Swiss Jura. Loyal to their motto, “Accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality,” the Frères Baume Company enjoyed rapid growth.
In 1988, the Swiss watchmaker joined the Richemont group. Currently, the brand offers the Clifton, Classima and Hampton collections for both men and women, and the Promesse and Linea watches for women.
