Baume & Mercier’s long history begins in 1830 as a small family business started by the two brothers Louis Victor and Celestin Baume. The company developed rapidly as a result of its cutting edge innovations and exceptional timepieces, while still remaining loyal to the motto “Accept only perfection, only manufacture watches of the highest quality”. Baume & Mercier timepieces are often gifted for special occasions, a tradition that one of the brothers started himself when he gifted his daughter a gold pocket watch in 1869. The brand is most noted for its heritage and craftsmanship for both male and female watches. Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.
Conditions may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome. Watches with water resistant cases may have been opened to inspect the movements; however no warranty is given that the watch(es) are currently water resistant. We do not warranty nor guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, including wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets, leather bands, and strap hardware, as repairs, restoration, and other subsequent work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.
Timepieces often contain extremely complex, fine, and rare mechanisms, as such, buyers should be aware that a general service, battery change, or further repair work, which is the sole responsibility of the buyer, may be necessary. No warranty of representation is made that any watch, clock, or timepiece is in working order and no catalog description of any lot should be interpreted as stating the aforementioned.
