About Baume & Mercier Hampton

"Accept only perfection." Loyal to the company's motto, the Baume & Mercier Hampton is a watch of the highest quality. Founded in a Swiss village in 1830, Baume & Mercier makes complex, yet beautiful, timepieces with excellent precision. These watches have even won various timekeeping competitions. Between the 1920s and 1940s, the company saw the importance of femininity in design and created watches that were akin to exquisite pieces of jewelry with bangle-style bracelets. More creative designs followed in the Art Deco period, including the Hampton collection, which takes its inspiration from a rectangular watch from the 1940s. It is a classic, urban timepiece that is still chic in the modern era. Women's and men's Hampton watches come in several styles with leather or bracelet straps. There is a collector's timepiece with an 18K red gold case featuring Roman numerals and a small seconds display. You can view its main components through the transparent sapphire crystal case back. For a watch that has gentle but dynamic lines, search the vast inventory on eBay for the Baume & Mercier Hampton.
