Baume & Mercier Goes Art Deco with New Watches in the Hampton Collection

The Reverso by Jaeger-LeCoultre is a classic and truly iconic watch, and it?s lusted after by many. It has a great story and history, a classic design, flipping the case around hearing it click satisfyingly into place on the opposite side is downright addictive for those among us who are obsessed with getting tactile feedback from their watch. But the cost of entry to a Reverso is prohibitive for some, so what is one to do if you simply must have a classic rectangular cased watch with Art Deco flair on a budget" Baume & Mercier just announced an appealing alternative.

While I generally steer away from the ?can?t afford that, so get this? line of thinking (personal experience here: it just leads to wanting that even more) the new Hampton series announced by Baume & Mercier at Watches & Wonders could serve as a satisfying alternative to a collector who wants some of the look and feel of the Reverso but is just not willing to drop the roughly $6,000 it would take to break into that particular collection (for a Reverso in JLC?s ?Medium? size). The Hampton offers a similar rectangular case with Art Deco inspiration for a little over $2,000, and you can spend about $1,000 more if you choose to and get one with a big date and dual time complication. Now, you won?t get an in-house movement at this price point, but the value proposition for something with such a striking design is real.  And while Baume & Mercier is part of the same corporate family as JLC (and, for that matter, Cartier, who of course produce an iconic rectangular watch of their own), the Hampton shouldn?t be seen as an homage or downmarket alternative. This line has been around for decades, and Baume & Mercier has a long history of creating watches with shaped cases that goes back to the 1920s and the peak of the Deco period. The Hampton has always been a way for the brand to reference this style of watchmaking, long before the current craze for anything vintage inspired.

The three new watches in the Hampton collection seen here run the gamut from discreet and time only to more prominent modern sizes with the aforementioned...
