This elegant Swiss watch from Balmer has a sophistication all its own. An exquisite guilloché dial displays at its zenith a golden balance wheel that softly ticks in sync with the seconds hand as you gaze through the dual polished stainless steel case. A multi-linked stainless steel bracelet gives this exuberant piece a look that's as refined as its manufacturing.
This handsome timepiece is offered in a limited edition of just 100 pieces, each serial numbered and presented with not only a certificate of origin but also with a beautiful Balmer box.

Just before the dawn of the twentieth century the Geneva watch firm of Colomb & Balmer became successor of interest to J.J. Badollet, another name famously associated with the Swiss city of Geneva for its fine watches. The next decade would see Badollet move into the industrial revolution, employing 250 souls in its Geneva shop and using 120 horsepower motors to power watch making machines. And then in 1897 Colomb & Balmer became the successors of interest to Badollet, continuing their legacy, assuming not just one name, but many names. They continued creating watches as "The Non Magnetic Watch Co." and "Charmille," using names already familiar in the marketplace. Until the mid-twentieth century, many of these brand names have been shelved or sadly seen little use or been taken by companies not endowed with the same vision of quality as the original Badollet family.
After seven years of product development in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, we are proud to reintroduce this prestigious brand as simply Balmer. This is done with the same spirit of perfection and commitment toward craftsmanship, we believe, as was the case four centuries before our time.
Balmer watches are about timeless watches, if there can be such a thing. These are Swiss-made watches upon which you can behold the time, and then behold the heavens and thank them for such a thing as time and these devices we must wear to make ourselves aware of this illusive linear habitation that remains otherwise immeasurable.
