About Baume & Mercier

A glint of polished metal, a glimmer of diamond flash, and a beautifully stitched leather strap adorn your wrist when you wear a classic Baume & Mercier timepiece. Founded in Switzerland in 1830 as Baume Brothers, the company incorporated in 1918 and became Baume & Mercier, or Baume et Mercier in French. The firm's designers craft elegant timepieces that have a longstanding international reputation for premier quality and precision coupled with unusual artistic shapes and stylings. The perennially popular Capeland series perfectly represents precision men's watches at their finest, particularly the multi-function Chronograph model. The company's strong styling lineage is also evident in the line of ladies' watches, which started in the 1940s with the Marquise collection and continues with the modern Linea and numerous other styles. The men's and women's timepieces produced by the brand enjoy consistent popularity with collectors, horologists, and fashion conscious individuals who simply appreciate quality watches. The trustworthy vendors on eBay offer a number of new and used Baume & Mercier watches from a variety of impeccable past and present collections.
