Baume et Mercier was founded by brothers Louis-Victor and Celestin Baume. The Swiss watch company’s motto is “accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality.” Have they upheld that motto? Yes! Just take a look at their beautiful and reliable timepieces. At one point, they had the best chronographs and grand compilation watches, even winning ten Grand Prix awards. The watch brand only became more successful after teaming up with Paul Mercier to create Baume & Mercier in 1918. A few of the most successful collections they have include the Marquise, Classima, and Clifton Baumatic.
