Baume & Mercier
Started around 1830 when the Baume family was making watches in the Jura near Berne. It as not until 1918 when a member of the family met Paul Mercier, a Geneva (Genève) jeweler of high repute.
In 1964 Piget acquired the major shareholding in the company.
In 1980 the Riviera sports watch par excellence made of gold and steel was first produced. To test its durability and precision, the watch was mounted on the wheel of a BMW M1 before the start of the Le Mans (which lies on the Prime Meridian) 24-hour race. The watch endured the speed, heat and weather and ran perfectly after the race.
The Medicus watch, designed especially for doctors, it includes a pulse scale to test a patient's pulse.
Baume & Mercier Watches:
I just got off the phone with the dealer you referred me to. I ordered the Ladies T-Round (T64.1.685.81) and the Gents T-Sport PR100 (T25.2.581.11). I am very pleased already with the customer service from both you and him.
Thanks again for all of your help!
