The Hampton Collection by Baume & Mercier is reminiscent of the laidback charm of the fashionable society that enjoys casually lavish Hampton soirees. Based on a 1940s watch from the Baume et Mercier Museum, the diverse collection includes watches for both men and women and comes in different movement options.
The aesthetic of the collection is largely inspired by the balanced symmetry of the Art Deco movement with rectangular shapes and angular edges. The case is made of stainless steel or gold while the strap options come in leather as well as steel. Clean Arabic or Roman Numerals mark the hours- legible without being overpowering.
Movement options include Quartz, manual and automatic. Functions include hour, minute and seconds in the simpler models. Others feature chronograph, date and water-resistance, enabling you to wear this piece daily be it at a black tie or at the beach.
Featuring an automatic movement, the Baume & Mercier MOA10027 for men has a classic finish that is suitable for all occasions. It sports a stainless steel case and a black leather strap. The sapphire crystal case window and 50-metre water resistance enable the watch to be worn daily whether you work or sport while maintaining its durability and integrity.
A precise Quartz movement powers the Baume & Mercier MOA10020 for women. Its prominent date window at 3’o clock imparts you with a holistic view of time while its 50-metre water resistivity and stainless steel make gives it added durability.
