Just last month, Baume & Mercier launched its new The Hampton Collection for both men and women. Taking its inspiration from the Hamptons, on Long Island in New York, the Swiss horology brand was taken with the magnificent residences and easy living coupled with artistic, cultural and social activities of the area. And more than anything else, the natural light that is unlike anywhere else.
Together with the collection’s launch, Baume & Mercier released a short film shot in a seaside mansion, the traditional residence of the Hamptons. The video is suffused with the characteristic light of this region between sea and sky, and immerses us in a poetic and mysterious mood. Through the symbolism of time, the film takes on a perspective from a child who discovers the Hampton Collection.

The rest of the seven models in the range features polished and satin-finished steel case with high-end diamond set models: 20 diamonds (0.48 carats) or 36 diamonds (0.73 carats) with alligator, satin strap or polished and satin-finished steel bracelet.
