A History: Baume & Mercier- Florida Gold Store

Baume & Mercier has always been known for its elegance as much as for its precision. Created over 170 years ago by Louis Victor and Pierre-Joseph-Celestin Baume in the small Swiss mountain village of Les Bois; it has since grown into one of the leading luxury watch brands on the market. Even after over a century and a half of innovative watch making, Baume & Mercier continues to release a plethora of ground breaking timepieces.

Baume & Mercier was originally a family run watch making business that would not become the company we have come to know until much later. In was not until 1844 when Joseph Celestin Baume traveled to England to create new business opportunities that this small family operation started to truly make a name for it self. There was an explosion of interest for their watches in England which allowed them to open more shops throughout Europe. With this new found interest in their watches Victor and Baume started to create less traditional timepieces and focus more on originality, an aspect that would come to greatly define this growing company in the future.

Over the next seventy years the company was successfully run by Victor and Baume’s descendents and had amassed a reputation for exquisite and precise watches throughout Europe. Yet compared to other luxury Swiss brands, Baume’s family run watch company was still relatively small scale. The year 1912 would be a turning point for the company. It was in this year that William Baume happened to meet the jeweler Paul Mercier. Six years later these two men would join together and create the luxury Swiss brand, Baume & Mercier.

These two men would use their ingenuity and business acumen to sky rocket to the top. Baume & Mercier has since become one of the leading luxury watch brands on the market. They have released such amazing models such as the Riviera, the Malibu, the Hampton Classic and the Classima. Raymond Lee Jewelers always has a great selection of Baume & Mercier watches on hand at great prices.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Baume & Mercier’s New Watch Ambassador- Jewelry Appraisal

Jewelry Appraisal

Jewelry Appraisal

Gwyneth Paltrow is one of those rare celebrities that Hollywood loves yet the public seems to hate. There is no doubt that Ms. Paltrow is an amazing actress but her off-screen comments and actions really make it hard for the general public to embrace her. Born from wealth, Gwyneth Paltrow has been highly criticized in the past for the life tips she offers her fans through her blog. Some gems include: which hotel to stay when traveling to Paris (The Ritz), which purse should be  bought this season (Balenciaga) and the virtues of eating a Macrobiotic diet; it is no wonder many find her a tad snobbish.

In reality Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the few celebrities that honestly enjoys interacting with her fans and often will respond to emails personally; her advice does come from the heart even if it can be a bit ostentatious. She even took a break from acting to focus on her family and raise her children, something many mothers can relate to. Unfortunately the tabloids tend to ignore this side of her personality as it does not sell magazines. She recently has stared in a string of high-profile roles and events such as her new movie Country Strong, her guest appearancee in Glee, hosting Saturday Night Live, her role in Iron Man 1/2 and even singing at the Grammys. Gwyneth Paltrow may be on her way to dethroning Sandra Bullock as America’s sweetheart.

It is no wonder that Baume & Mercier has chosen her as their latest “friend” which means she will be seen wearing some of their amazing timepieces to high profile events. Ms. Paltrow has quite a few wristwatches to choose from like the classic Classima, the Capeland and Linea collections. Baume & Mercier will also be releasing a new line called the Hampton Collection which has an updated, classic look and will look amazing gracing the arm of any women.

If you have a Baume & Mercier watch makes sure you get it and any of your Jewelry Appraisal at Raymond Lee Jewelers.
