Introducing The Baume & Mercier Hampton Big Date Dual Time
Launched close by a few other new models for their (presently advanced just) Watches & Wonders offering, Baume & Mercier has made a variant of their rectangular Hampton watch that flaunts both a major date and a pleasantly executed dual time show. Upheld by a proportional steel case, this Hampton offers capacity and structure that are outside the norm.
Clearly motivated by the unending appeal of the Art Deco period, this Hampton deals with a Reverso-esque feel without becoming dangerously close. Its cleaned steel case is 31mm wide and 48mm carry to haul (for reference, a “huge” Cartier Tank Louis Cartier is 25.5 x 33.7, so the Hampton is rectangular), and its dial blends opaline and grained silver completing to offer solid readability when applied related to the dull ruthenium-completed hands and markers.
With solid dial balance secured by a major date show under 12 and a roundabout subdial showing a combined dual time and day/night sign at six, the Hampton Big Date Dual Time has a great deal to bring to the table for those that need an exquisite method of following a subsequent time zone and a fast perspective on the date. The entirety of that usefulness is upheld by a Swiss-made Soprod TT651 development, which, on account of the showcase caseback, can be seen running at 4 Hz and offering a force hold of 42 hours.
Priced at CHF 3,650, the Baume & Mercier Hampton Big Date Dual Time offers an uncommon rectangular organization with present day extents and a solid capacity set. For a dressier office setting, this would make an amazing all day watch, and the consideration of brisk change tie fittings implies you could without much of a stretch keep up appropriately coordinated cowhide tones. Additionally, is it just me, or does “Baume & Mercier” simply feel so comfortable on a rectangular dial?
