Baume & Mercier launched a new Hampton collection with a video and dedicated website. Taking on the form of an initiation tale, it uses the symbolism of time regained through a child who discovers the Hampton Collection.
The high-end watches of the Hampton collection for women are adorned with two types of settings. In the first, 20 diamonds (total 0.73 carats) are set in the curved case side of a version with a silvered dial featuring a sunburst satin finish on the outer part and opaline finishes in the center, or an equally chic two-toned dial in black and anthracite.
The second type of setting has a double row of diamonds on the satined domed volume at 12 and 6 o’clock; these 36 diamonds (0.48 carats) accentuate the piece’s natural sophistication.
Another signature feature of the collection is the “jodhpur” shape of the wristband, which makes it lighter and more comfortable on the wrist. The strap is offered in satin or alligator. Also noteworthy is the perfect integration between the case and the bracelet which extends the piece’s fluid lines.
Alexandre Peraldi, Director of Baume & Mercier’s Design Studio explains how the Hamptons have been an inspiration for Baume & Mercier’s new iconic Hampton watch collection:
