Baume & Mercier Prima

During the Roaring Twenties, the brand embraced women’s emancipation. In the 1940s, Baume & Mercier launched a number of modern watch collections, most notably the 2 Register Chronograph. Early examples of this model with the double-case back are rare and highly sought after.

So here an example from about 1945, 18k rose gold case and 2 register chronograph. Time left its marks, but that is what we love. Production in rose gold was lower than, for example, yellow gold, so that makes it even rarer. This watch measures 32mm, which would be considered a man’s size when it was launched. Today, it is equally at home on a woman’s wrist as it is on a gentleman’s. The dial looks like an old map, with all kinds of navigation lines. Which route will lead you to us?
