Introducing The Baume & Mercier Hampton Big Date Dual Time

Introducing The Baume & Mercier Hampton Big Date Dual Time

Fast Take

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. 

Starting Thoughts

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?
