Baume et Mercier Watches

 

The Riveria

In 1912, when William Baume met Paul Mercier (born Tchereditchenko), the son of a Czarist officer and the head of a well-known Geneva firm of watchmakers, one of the greatest collaborations of technology and design was born. Bringing together the award-winning technologies and international presence of the fabled Baume & Company with the artistic sensibilities and dynamism of Mercier's engaging personality created a new standard in watch making craftsmanship and aesthetics. Already the proud recipient of numerous awards, by 1921 Baume & Mercier had been awarded the coveted Poinon de Genve, the highest honor given master watchmakers by the Republic and Canton of Geneva.

Other striking collections launched by Baume et Mercier include the stylish, water resistantMalibu Collection, the Hampton collection which balances tradition and modernity with retro charm and contemporary elegance; and the Linea collection, one of the most prestigious lines of jewellery bracelets for women.

The phi symbol, representing the Golden Number a theory of proportion and balance, began appearing on the clasps and dials of all Baume et Mercier timepieces in 1964. Today, you will find it on every Baume & Mercier you consider, symbolizing the watchmaker s fundamental values of expertise, the highest standards of workmanship, attention to detail and a commitment to quality.
