Baumé & Mercier is a renowned Swiss watchmaking company with a rich heritage dating back to its founding in 1830. This prestigious brand has consistently upheld a commitment to crafting elegant timepieces known for their precision, quality, and timeless design.
Baumé & Mercier's collections encompass a wide range of styles, from classic and vintage-inspired watches to contemporary and sporty models. The company's dedication to craftsmanship and innovation has earned it a respected place within the horological industry, making Baumé & Mercier a symbol of Swiss watchmaking excellence for generations of watch enthusiasts. This vintage Baume & Mercier wristwatch is a true rarity, featuring a Swiss-made mechanical movement and Arabic numeral indices. Manufactured in the 1950s, this classic timepiece boasts a 35mm stainless steel case with a solid caseback and a two-piece leather strap in brown. The beige, cream, and multicolor dial is accented by a chronograph function and protected by an acrylic crystal.
One side (at the 12 o'clock level) of the case shows this piece was dedicated to a dear one; likely gifted around the year 1977. It's working well and keeping time. The lume on one of the hands is degraded due to age. The genuine leather strap and the crown are not by Baumé & Mercier that's normal for such vintage pieces.
We're talking about 80+ years of watch age. In addition to its timeless design, this watch is also a limited edition piece with Swiss-made quality. It comes without original box/packaging or papers, but its luxurious sport, dress/formal, and casual style would make a perfect addition to any collection.
