NEW IN 2022 AND STILL DISTINCTIVE OF BAUME & MERCIER EXPERTISE IN WATCHMAKING DESIGN
To design a timepiece like an art object… It takes a visionary spirit with a love for shapes and volumes to conceive of ultra-slim pocket watches for men and jewelry watches for women to wear as rings or necklaces. Beginning in the 1920s, Paul Mercier, backed by the technical expertise of William Baume, captured the essence of the social progress of the times. The Maison’s inherent creativity and modernity have brought it resounding success, marking the signature look of Baume & Mercier that is still visible today.
Why not combine the dependability and precision of a watch of the highest quality with the lightness and appeal of contemporary esthetics? People want freshness, beauty, lightness.
