Baume & Mercier Watches – Quality Guaranteed
All watches go through rigorous testing, both movements and cases. This is to ensure that every timepiece that leaves the workshop functions according to Baume & Mercier’s tight specifications. The mechanical watches are tested on a machine for the movement’s accuracy and power reserve. Their function controls are also tested: setting the time, jumping date, chronograph and any other complication, which will guarantee the reliability and accuracy of any movement type, whether it be automatic, mechanical or otherwise.
The watches will then be put through further testing, to make sure that they comply to the standards set, regarding thermal shock testing, and water resistance. Each and every watch made in Les Brenets will also undergo a range of visual and aesthetic checks. Finally, to ensure consistent and flawless quality, each finished piece undergoes a final meticulous check before being sent to ourselves, to be sold to customers all around the world, both in-store and online!
