Baume & Mercier Baume Ocean Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand BAUME & MERCIER continues its commitment to the planet with the launch of a new model: the BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition.

Available in two color versions, blue and green, this new BAUME watch is created in collaboration with Waste Free Oceans (WFO) and SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, two partners that collect plastic debris from the seas to transform them into innovative products. The BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition represents the combination of balanced design, technical expertise and a unique vision of watchmaking that inspires the Brand on a daily basis.

Baume & Mercier Baume Ocean Limited Edition

The BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition is the first creation released since BAUME was integrated as a collection into the Baume & Mercier family in last May. This model symbolizes the Brand’s intention to establish an ecological ethic and to pursue the path that it began in 2018 with BAUME. The collaboration with the NGO WFO and the SEAQUAL INITIATIVE reflects this approach, which combines two key beliefs in the Brand’s development: eco-responsibility and innovation.

The BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition watch reflects the unique design that brought Baume success, with an off-center crown located at 12 o’clock, and moving in black anodized aluminum. The 42mm case is crafted using a recycled plastic cap produced by the NGO WFO, a historical partner of BAUME; and the case is then sheathed in blue or green anodized aluminum.

The cap is made up of 80% recycled plastic gathered by the partner NGO Waste Free Oceans and reinforced with 20% glass fibers to increase its resistance. To craft the case of the BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition in recycled materials, Baume & Mercier worked in close collaboration with WFO, selecting the plastic debris from the ocean that offers the highest performance, durability, and quality.

In deep gray, the streamlined dial features a mise en abyme effect created by various layers and finishes. On the strength of its design expertise, BAUME & MERCIER offers an original time display with a central hour hand for a very unique look. In oceanic blue, the aluminum flange creates a strong contrast, bringing even more character to this resolutely eco-responsible timepiece.

Driven by a tried-and-true “Swiss Made” self-winding mechanical movement (SW-200), water-resistant to 30 meters, the BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition was assembled in the Baume & Mercier workshops in Les Brenets at the heart of the Swiss Jura, and so it benefits from the Brand’s full expertise.

The BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition watch is equipped with an interchangeable strap in a material called SEAQUAL® YARN, made with upcycled marine plastic. The gray RPET strap features blue or green overstitching, trimmed with black along the edge and lined with natural cork for optimal comfort in wear.

Like its predecessors, the BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition will be presented in a hexagonal package made of recyclable cardboard and lined with recycled polyester felt.

In keeping with the BAUME commitment – donating 2% for each BAUME timepiece purchased, Baume & Mercier is committed to donating 5% of its sales from the BAUME OCEAN Limited Edition collection to the NGOs Waste Free Oceans and SEAQUAL INITIATIVE in order to contribute to coordinated actions combating marine pollution. 5% is symbolic, representing the importance of the five oceans in our daily lives.

The recommended retail price is 1,330 CHF.
