Payment Policy


Baume & Mercier accepts the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, JCB, American Express, Diner’s Club and Discover. Cards issued by banks domiciled outside the United States of America will not be accepted. All credit/debit card holders must also have a United States of America billing address.

When ordering on the Website, you will need to enter your payment details on the appropriate form. If you order by telephone, you will need to communicate to the Client Relations Center your credit/debit card number and your three- or four- digit security code that is printed on the back or the front of your card (CVV2/CVC2/CID). Your telephone conversation will be recorded for security and quality control purposes. Any telephone conversation recorded by our Client Relations Center that contains your credit card information will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions.

All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Baume & Mercier, you will need to contact your card issuer directly to solve this problem, and Baume & Mercier will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

In order to process your order, we may perform a pre-authorization of your credit card. The amount of your purchase will be blocked on your credit card until your order is shipped to the shipping address you have provided to Baume & Mercier, at which time you will be sent a Confirmation of Order and your credit card will be charged the applicable purchase price. By submitting an offer to purchase Baume & Mercier products on the Website or through the Client Relations Center, you expressly authorize Baume & Mercier to perform such credit card pre-authorization and, where Baume & Mercier deems necessary, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your credit-card number, to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorization and to authorize individual purchase transactions.

Baume & Mercier takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Baume & Mercier uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is collected. Unfortunately, transmitting information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of the data you transmit; any transmission is at your own risk and we cannot be held liable. For more information about how we use and protect your information please view our Privacy Policy.

In order to secure your transaction and prevent fraud, Baume & Mercier will perform a credit card and anti-fraud check. By placing your order, you will be deemed to have authorized Baume & Mercier to perform such checks and, where Baume & Mercier deems necessary, to transmit or obtain information that you have provided to Baume & Mercier about you in order to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorization and to authorize a particular purchase transaction.
