Baume & Mercier’s illustrious history dates all the way back to the 1830s, when Swiss brothers Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume opened a watch shop, Frères Baume, in the village of Les Bois. By the end of the 19th century, the company had a global reach and numerous awards. In 1919, company director William Baume teamed up with Paul Mercier to form Baume & Mercier, Genève. The company has been known for creating timepieces of exceptional craftsmanship and quality ever since.
