Extending its work into the realm of monochromatic color schemes and Art Deco, Bam & Mercyr has now added two new releases to its Hampton Collection. The two timepieces, which include a steel and red edition as well as a pink gold and blue model, join the established modern series, which, like other popular models from Cartier Channel, elegantly geometry on the wrist.
As mentioned, there are two new additions to the Hampton Collection, each with different colors and case materials. First, ref. 10673, made of polished steel with a steel crown set featuring synthetic burgundy spinel. Second, ref. 10674, made of 18K (750/1000) rose gold and polished titanium, with a PVD-coated steel crown set with synthetic blue spinel. Both are rectangular in shape with dimensions of 35 x 22.2mm, with a relative slimness of just 6.9mm in height.
For the dial, the steel edition opts for a burgundy color, while the gold variant has a blue aesthetic, with colors matching their respective crowns and straps. Both dials are finished with a lustrous varnish “inspired by gemstones and star rubies”, creating a shimmering effect when light hits the surface. Beyond those details, the dial is minimal, with no indices and is marked only with the applied Baume & Mercier logo, the Greek letter phi, placed at the 12 o’clock position, along with a few printed descriptors. With a mechanism that the brand describes as a “new-generation quartz movement”, caliber MHH057 powers the pair and it can maintain “eight years of autonomy”.
While the last Baume & Mercier Hampton watches were characterized by their elaborate Milano mesh straps, these two new models each come with a calfskin strap: burgundy with tone-on-tone stitching and a steel pin buckle and blue with tone-on-tone stitching and a PVD steel buckle.
Available now through the brand’s website and authorized shops, the new steel edition retails for $1,700, while the rose gold model is marked down for $3,850.
