Baume & Mercier has enriched its Hampton Collection with two fabulous and delicate timepieces that boast all significant features of this line, such as soft curves, feminine shapes and sophisticated design.
These two new Hampton models are housed in small, rectangular cases with dimensions 34.5mm x 22mm in order to fulfill the expectations of modern women for whom beauty is a state of mind that can be brought on any occasion. They are dressed either in red gold or in stainless steel.
The Hampton line which has been a classic for twenty years has always managed to capture the spirit of the location. The Hampton models are inspired by the model which was first presented in the 1930s and 1940s. This iconic timepiece represents a manifestation of the Art Deco period, expressing confidence and refinement.
Hampton Lady Watch with the referent number 10108 plays on the colors of 18-karat red gold (weighing 6.07 grams) and stainless steel. Its rectangular case with sensible dimensions is coated with the sapphire crystal which is based on the historic model from the 1930s. Its case is only 9mm thick and it feels great on a lady’s wrist.
Its polished and satin finished steel case incorporates an 18-karat red gold winding crown. The heart of the watch is a Swiss-made caliber that guarantees precision and reliability for a long time. It provides time and date functions. Besides golden Arabic numerals, the dial also comprises a discreet date window which is traditionally situated at the 3 o’clock position.
This gorgeous timepiece comes attached with a two-toned bracelet featuring a polished/satin-finish. It is secured to the wearer’s wrist by a folding clasp with security push-pieces. As it is reported by the manufacturer, the new Hampton model that combines steel and red gold will be available in October 2013.
The second Baume & Mercier novelty from the Hampton line of watches is simple, yet elegant model with the referent number 10110. This newcomer that will be available from September 2013 is housed in a polished and satin-finished steel case. The feminine case features a silver-colored dial encrusted with golden Arabic numerals. This exquisite timepiece also has a small black-on-white date display located at the 3 o’clock position.
The beating heart of the watch is a Swiss-made quartz movement. The watch is secured to the wrist with a brown calfskin wrap-around strap with ecru stitching and a traditional pin buckle fastening. Both models are constructed to resist water pressure of up to 50 meters (about 165 feet).
