Every year Baume & Mercier release an emblematic limited edition that speaks to the brand’s 185-year history and legacy. This year, they’re celebrating with something unusual – a beautiful and complicated pocket watch.

The prettily finished movement is powered by a Dubois Depraz module, which is shown off behind the sapphire caseback.
It had been Peter Henlein who first invented the pocket watch in Nuremberg, Germany. The initial watch was worn through the philosopher, Blaise Pascal.

Whether it’s the cars we drive or perhaps the watches we placed on, these were all inspired with a dream.
