The new William Baume collection is composed exclusively of models crafted in keeping with the finest traditions of Haute Horlogerie, produced in limited, numbered series and powered by complicated movements specially manufactured for Baume & Mercier. The four new models in the collection renew ties with the brand’s origins.

Each of these models has its own history and most of them are inspired by iconic historical Baume & Mercier watches. The William Baume collection now comprises four watches in all.

The collection includes the William Baume Flying Tourbillon, one of the most prestigious horological complications and one of the trickiest to create. The rotation of its carriage compensates for the effects of gravity and thereby serves to increase the precision of the watch. In 1892, the “Frères Baume” company set an absolute precision record at the chronometry competition held in Kew Observatory in England with a tourbillon chronometer, acclaimed as the most accurate watch of its time.
