Welcome to Worthy, where we get you the most for your Baume et Mercier watch with our unique online auction platform. This platform allows you to quickly and easily get the best price for your watch based on real market conditions. Low overhead significantly reduce costs, and with professional appraisals at no cost to you, we are able to help you get more for your luxury watch. If the offer we provide you is insufficient, you can choose to decline – there is no obligation.

Get the Highest Market Value

Worthy truly is the best method for selling your Baume et Mercier watch. First, we work with expert appraisers who have the experience and expertise required to objectively appraise your watch. Why is this important? An objective appraisal is different from standard appraisals conducted at jewelry shops and similar venues in that its goal is not to assign a price tag to your watch, but to certify and authenticate it in order to enhance buyer trust, which in turn helps to ensure that you receive the best value. No other online platform offers an appraisal process like this one.

After the appraisal is completed, your watch will be put on our auction platform where real, professional buyers will place bids on your watch. At the end of the auction, the value of your watch will be determined by the highest bid. This method is the most accurate way of determining the real market value of your Baume et Mercier watch in accordance with real bids from knowledgeable buyers. 

A Trustworthy Appraiser 

We hold a Secondhand Dealer's License issued by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs and are highly accredited by the BBB. In addition, we partner with independent appraisal experts who are highly qualified to appraise and authenticate your Baume et Mercier. Because each and every luxury item we sell on behalf of our clients is unique, we take great care to select the appraiser who is best equipped to handle its evaluation, in terms of experience and expertise. This ensures that the objective appraisal your watch receives will be accurate, satisfying our buyers’ requirements and cementing our reputation as the best.

Convenience

Worthy makes it very easy to sell your Baume et Mercier watch. We will do all of the legwork for you through these simple steps:
  1. Briefly describe your watch to us along with an image.
  2. Based on your description, relevant transactions and preliminary bids of interested buyers, we provide you with a market value estimate. At this stage, you can also send the watch one of our secure facilities using the prepaid shipping label we provide.
  3. Our partner appraisers will evaluate, authenticate and take photographs of your Baume et Mercier to be paired with a detailed description of your item before it is put on the auction platform.
  4. Once it is on auction, buyers will place competitive bids on your watch – the highest bid will be the price we offer you.
  5. Upon accepting the deal, you get paid almost immediately.



About Baume et Mercier Watches

The Baume et Mercier company was founded in 1830 and is known for creating sporty chronographs. The Baume family opened up the first watch shop in Les Bois, Switzerland in 1830.  This small company soon turned into a large company with thriving industrial practices and commercial flair that was set in place by the two Baume brothers. Their motto was based on creating perfect, high quality watches and they followed that ethos to the letter. The objective of this company was to create quality traditional watches that used the latest technological breakthroughs in watch-making.
 
In 1918 at the end of WWI, many changes began to take place in the watch industry, in the arts and in society. The emancipation of women led to the widespread creation of ladies’ jewelry and watches. This trend encouraged watchmakers to miniaturize watch movements. During 1918, Paul Mercier and William Baume joined forces despite their opposite temperaments. These men shared the vision of contemporary watchmaking. Baume dealt with the technical aspects of the watches while Mercier handled the commercial activity and design aspects. 

In 1919, just a year after Baume et Mercier was set up, the company received the Geneva Hallmark or “Poinçon de Genève” award – the highest award given for fine craftsmanship in the watch-making business.  Over a year later, Baume et Mercier was the largest watch brand that produced the most watches certified with this coveted quality label.
