BAUME & MERCIER HERITAGE
The Baume Mercier family opened one of the first watch shops in the village of Les Bois in the Swiss Jura region in 1830. Thanks to the energy and industry of brothers Louis-Victor and Joseph-Célestin Baume ‘Frères Baume’ soon became a major watchmaking company. After setting up a branch in London the reputation of Baume & Mercier spread throughout the British Empire gaining worldwide recognition.
In 1918 William Baume, the third generation of the Baume watchmaking family, joined forces with Paul Mercier. Under their guidance the company survived the watch crisis and Wall Street crash in the 1920s. Baume & Mercier launched their latest watch collection, the Clifton, exclusively with The Watch Gallery in 2013.
