In 1830, brothers Louis Victor and Pierre-Joseph Célestin Baume founded a Swiss watchmaking house that would become a world leader in horology. With a single slogan to guide their creativity—accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality—the Baume family, which aligned with Paul Mercier in 1920, set a new standard in watchmaking with such timepieces as the Marquise, a “jewelry watch” that integrated a dial into a clasp-less bangle. Today, after nearly two centuries of inspiration, little has changed. From the Hampton collection, named for the popular New York seaside resort, to the fresh, pure-lined CapeLand, Baume & Mercier watches are stylish and inventive.
