  • Summary

Renewing ties with the origins of Baume & Mercier, this collection pays homage to the horological craftsmanship and innovative spirit cultivated by William Baume.

The three models of the collection, issued in limited editions, evoke the brand’s origins through complications inseparably entwined with its historical heritage.

William Baume Ultra-thin
Ultra-thin watches have always been synonymous with superior elegance and extreme technical sophistication. From 1920 onwards, Baume & Mercier began to specialize in ultra-thin watches, and in 1965 the brand caused a sensation with the thinnest automatic watch of the era.

Mechanical hand-wound movement just 2 mm thick. 41 mm red gold case, dial with “vieux panier” guilloché motif, hand-sewn alligator leather strap. Limited, numbered edition of 178.
