Baume & Mercier William Baume Jumping Hour

October 25, 2010

While Baume & Mercier may be best known for its entry-level luxury watches (usually under $5,000), every now and then it likes to pull out the big guns to show off what it can really do. The William Baume Collection, named after the brand’s contemporary paternal figure, features the manufacture’s line of haute horlogerie pieces, including two exclusive jumping hour watches. You’ve never seen a Baume & Mercier like this before, but something tells us you’ll want to see more of them.

UNIQUENESS

A measure of the distinctiveness that the watch lends its wearer

First things first, there are only 40 of these watches going to be made. On top of that, you can be sure the first pieces will be going to collectors and other friends of the brand. The jump-hour movements display the hour in a “digital” readout, reading only one hour at a time. The minute register resides around the hour display and the seconds register sits at 6 o’clock. The Baume & Mercier William Baume Jumping Hour is a throwback to a bygone era of horology, and these limited-edition William Baumes are a modern twist.
