Baume & Mercier was founded as “Frères Baume” in 1830 by brothers Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume. In 1918, the firm became specialized in manufacturing wristwatches, particularly unconventional “shaped” models that did not possess the traditional round form. In the 1970s, Baume & Mercier introduced shaped timepieces such as the Galaxie and Stardust models. In 1973, Baume & Mercier presented the Riviera, one of the world’s first steel sports watches. In 1988, the Swiss watchmaker joined the Richemont group. Currently, the brand offers the Clifton, Classima, Hampton, and Capeland collections for men, and the Hampton and Linea collections for women
