Success needs perfect timing – and that is exactly what Baume & Mercier has. At its modern project management center Les Brenets in the Swiss Jura, the leading watch maker manufactures each piece using the traditional établissage production method. The high quality performance of every watch starts with Baume & Mercier’s discrete selection of component suppliers, picking out only the most recognized and time-tested sources. Then starts the 9-stage process of producing the watch – a long and tedious progression from the design team, who study, create and develop tomorrow’s innovative yet classic designs, to the production team who use state-of-the-art technology to assemble the components, clean out every speck of particles and perform multiple checks to ensure reliable and high-rated instruments. With the team of specialists’ impeccable attention to every bit of detail, Baume & Mercier literally has the perfect timing. No wonder the brand has been enjoying immense success in the industry since 1830.
