Baume & Mercier
Two brothers from the Baume family opened one of the first watch shops in Jura, Switzerland, 1830 – it was called the ‘Frères Baume, la Familie Louis Joseph’. Baume & Mercier formed after William Baume, a watchmaker met the grandson of one of the Baume brothers, Paul Mercier in 1920. The company has produced numerous fine creations since its founding in Geneva, 1830. The company has become a major player thanks to its ethos of professionalism and perfectionism.

at a hammer price between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro the buyer´s premium is 23,80 % (including VAT) for the (partial) amount of 1.000.000,00 Euro and 17,85% (including VAT) for the (partial) amount between 1.000.000,01 Euro and 2.000.000,00 Euro
