The story between Baume & Mercier and the women’s watch originated in 1869. The founder of the brand, Louis-VictorBaume, presented a gold pocket watch decorated with flowers to his daughter Mélina. Until the beginning of the last century, watches gradually replaced pocket watches and became a fashion trend. Baume & Mercier conducted a new attempt to draw inspiration from the characteristics of women and create jewellery watches for women at the time, which has established a long-term relationship with women. In 1946, Baume & Mercier introduced the then-popular Marquise watch, which became one of Baume & Mercier’s representative models. What sets this watch apart is its slim rectangular dial and “esclave” (slave) bracelet.
The elegant and distinguished Baume and Mercier Chrysler series is inspired by a watch treasured in the Baume & Mercier archives, creating a simple and refined elegant style, bringing a new choice of watches to modern women.
