No. 35. Baume & Mercier – William Baume Flying Tourbillon


Price: $75,000

In the 19th century Baume family’s watchmaking business became one of Switzerland’s major watch manufacturers with branches in London, Geneva and Philadelphia. Further collaboration with Paul Mercier ensured the quick success of the business.

William Baume Tourbillon features black dial, black alligator strap, 52-hour power reserve and its unique “flying tourbillon”, which is held in place on only one side rather than on the top and bottom. Another distinctive feature of this watch lies in the unusual and elegant 9 o’clock position of its escapements and a small second display at 6 o’clock. The William Baume Flying Tourbillon is a very beautiful watch with its 43mm 18k rose gold case and sapphire crystal and back case that reveals a beautifully decorated movement. Today Baume & Mercier is an established name in the world of luxury watches with its aesthetically pleasing and most technologically accomplished interpretation, the flying tourbillon.

      Nothing to do with consumerism… these are designed to last many lifetimes, they are museum pieces of art and the shitory of human ingenuity to any horologist. They are a testament to the love, creativity, and imagination, that humans are capable of, when they make valuable tools… but then you wouldn’t understand, your remark means that you are no artisan, and never will be… and these items do not lose value if you buy carefully, on the otherhand your watch, your cell phone have no real value, they plummet in value from the moment you bought them, can’t be repaired and are quickly obsolescent. Buying an Iwatch is consumerism, as is an Iphone, and anything from Apple, overpriced, and worthless in a few years. Your lack of appreciation of beautiful tools, is the opposite of a survival trait. It’s also the opposite of sophistication…. you are for certain not a tradesman, or machinist, or technologist… you are the sort of person who actually is the opposite of what you imagine yourself. You don’t fix things, don’t know how to, you just use and discard… You aren’t capable of fixing a car, or anything else for that matter, you don’t work in wood or metal or any material really, can’t appreciate the difference between a Yugo and a Mercedes… between Orlon and Merino wool, between any item of quality vs the cheapest Chinese garbage.

      Life is priceless, and a time machine won’t buy one more minute of life…

      You wasted your money, you cpuld have bought a quartz clock at the 99 cents store, tells the same time as your $50 watch. Your $50 watch had no resale value the moment you purchased it, whereas a fine wtach increases in value just sitting in the drawer… these watches have more investment value than any Bonds, they are like like the equvalent cost of Berkshare Hathaway shares, or a Monet hanging on your wall.. and you understand none of this, for you fine dining is a burger and fries at McDonald’s

  1. i have a watch installed in my brain and i think everyone has , all it does is just tells me the damn time at anytime, thats how complicated it is but totally free

      Actually a LSI (large scale integrated circuit) would be a considerable improvement on what you have at the moment. You must also be unemployed, as no employer would be impressed with your sense of timeliness and time keeping.

  2. I dont think its fair to combine jewelled watches with non jewelled ones. Usually they are two separate categories and hence lists. Diamonds, precious stones and gold will automatically raise the price tag of anything so the headline is misleading, because most people understand expensive watches to be expensive based on the material and brand and not because they are jewellery watches. You also forgot to add Richard Mille, whose watches cost upwards of a million dollars, and they dont have any precious stones or gold. But otherwise your list is good. Could have researched and put up better HD quality pictures though.

  3. Watch making and collecting them is a fine art, that others don’t understand.

    Since I am not able to afford them right now, I too am interested in seeing these collections in person, maybe for a fee to view them. Collectors, manufacturers are advised to submit their quotations to enable us to view them all.

    Thanks in advance. However, I have been relying on the Time provided by the synced CDMA networks in my mobile phone, worth about $.10/-

  4. Of course it shows the same time as people have written above. Ten why do we run after brands, durability, fashion, dignity, posh etc…. Look.. people would buy it for sure

    • Watch making and collecting them is a fine art, that others don’t understand. Your food, your books, you clothes, your house, is it all the same for $10, or $1,000,000?
