Tourbillon Making History
This way of designing and manufacturing watches has been around for a long time, and Baume & Mercier watches now carry it forward. Baume & Mercier used this method of watchmaking in 1892 to make a watch without a key, whose speed was adjusted by a tourbillon. This delicate mechanical structure consists of a frame that rotates once a minute, and the rotation can offset the balance of the balance wheel, which significantly improves the accuracy of the watch. The tourbillon’s manufacturing process was complex and difficult to adjust. This was an amazing pioneering work at the time. Only the top watchmaking workshops were able to equip watches with such amazing devices and participate in precision timepiece competitions.
At that time, Baume & Mercier opened a branch in the UK, headed by Célestin Baume (brother of Louis-Victor). The second-generation heir Alcide Baume showed this tourbillon watch at the Royal Observatory Competition in 1892, achieving a high score of 91.9. With this impressive achievement, this masterpiece of watches has become the world’s most accurate watch for the next 10 years.
