ART DECO ORIGINS

 

Inspired by 1940s watches and clearly standing out from established conventions, the rectangular design of Hampton watches exercises a self-evident appeal. Frequently imitated but never equaled, this rigorous shape composed of taut lines softened by gentle curves daily reveals its ageless character. This is confirmed by the new Hampton collection which is an integral part of the Baume & Mercier heritage, stemming directly from an historical model belonging to the company museum and dating back to the Art Deco period.

The Hampton collection comprises men’s steel models, driven by quartz or mechanical self-winding movements and fitted with alligator or calfskin straps. Available in various sizes, these Hampton models make perfect pairs with the models designed for women.

The understated contemporary interpretation of the Hampton collection for ladies dares to offer suggestive curves. The models are available in steel case and steel bracelet versions or fitted with a calfskin strap, as well as in two-tone versions. This singular yet infinitely plural watch adopts a jewelry approach when its rectangular shapes directly inspired by the original model are set with brilliant-cut diamonds. The dials with their Arabic numerals appearing against silver-colored or natural mother-of-pearl backgrounds lend a precious and elegant touch to these watches radiating an aura of timeless chic.
