Baume & Mercier Hampton Women Small Watches

Swiss luxury watch brand Baume & Mercier reveals a series of three new Hampton Women Small watches that offer a classic and refined design. These newest introductions to the 2012 Hampton Collection for women come in more petite size that makes a truly feminine statement, and still underscores the chic elegance the Hampton line is renowned for.

It was just eighteen years ago, in 1994, that Baume & Mercier first unveiled its Hampton Collection in honor of the elegant Hampton’s spirit. Inspired by a museum piece from the 1940’s, the Hampton collection combines key design elements of the original highly distinctive rectangular case shape with stylish and modern accents. Today’s reinterpretation of this iconic piece in delicate small size gracefully embodies vintage Art Deco styling in a thoroughly modern expression.

The new Hampton Women’s small watches are the epitome of the intimate harmony and elegance that reflects the brand’s spirited DNA, and are certain to enjoy the same international acclaim as their larger-sized siblings. The stylish, refined watches in this series reinforce Baume & Mercier’s eternal commitment to design and quality.

Heretofore, the Hampton Women collection was offered only in a generously sized 40 x 27.1mm version. The new delicately sized quartz watches feature a 34.5 x 22mm case that is at once charming and alluring, and brings the line to a new seductive, ultra-feminine level. With this further enrichment of the ergonomically appealing line, these three superb models for women – by virtue of their smaller size – are a great fit for any wrist.

The stunning slender sized watch features a shimmering integrated polished and satined-finish steel bracelet that complements the men’s Hampton steel bracelet version – making a duo offer perfect for his-and-her gifts to mark important moments in life such as weddings and anniversaries. The integrated bracelet on these exquisite petite models is equipped with a simple-to-use triple-folding security clasp and coordinates masterfully with the polished and satin-finished small curved rectangular Hampton case.

Thanks to its understanding of women’s wants in timepieces, Baume & Mercier offers a nice selection of various accents among the three models – ensuring that choice is a woman’s natural right. Each graceful Hampton watch magnificently offers date indication at 3:00. Two of the three new Hampton Women Small watches feature feminine mother-of-pearl dials with Top Wesselton, VS quality diamonds. One version is bedecked with 8 diamonds on the mother-of-pearl dial, while another model is adorned with 20 diamonds on the elegantly curved case. The non-diamond model is a statement of active sophistication, with gilt Arabic numerals on the sun satin-finished and opaline silver colored dial.

The new series of watches offers a decorated caseback, which is held in place by four screws and is engraveable – a further testament to commemorating occasions. The ultra feminine Hampton Women small watches are fitted with scratch-resistant curved sapphire crystals and are water resistant to 50 meters (5ATM). Each of these wonderful new watches further underscores Baume & Mercier’s commitment to the feminine segment without sacrificing elegance and quality.

The enchanting new series is the result of the rich heritage and spirited emotion that underscores Baume & Mercier’s watchmaking expertise. These core philosophies inherent in Baume & Mercier’s DNA, and in its stylish new timepieces, correlate unusually close to the spirit and values of the globally recognized Hamptons, where seaside living embraces family sharing, deep roots and casual relaxed elegance. It is in this seaside living attitude, among unchanging landscapes of sandy beaches, waves and driftwood, like the ticking of a clock for eternity that Baume & Mercier connects with discerning women – those who recognize that life is about moments.

Indeed, the relationship between Baume & Mercier’s creative spirit and the rich authenticity of the Hamptons brings global appeal to the brand on a grassroots level with which so many can identify.
