Hampton Classic Baume & Mercier

Baume and Mercier’s watch making origins date back to 1830 in the heart of Switzerland.

The company’s name dates from the meeting between William Baume and Paul Mercier in 1918.

The contrast of the rigorous and precise Baume with the artistic and free thinking Mercier fused form and function for all time with the distinct Baume & Mercier timepiece.

A one of a kind for all time.

Today the company is owned by giants luxury goods manufacturer Richemont and is known for making sporty wristwatches with a stopwatch function. Along with sister brands Cartier and Piaget they make up the core of the group.

Their watches aim to be sporty, trendsetting and fashionable. One of the company’s most successful watches was the Riviera, launched in 1973.
Today’s watch models include the  Hampton Classic, Hampton City Chronograph and Capeland S Ladies Diamond.
To celebrate the fifth edition of the Baume & Mercier & Me charity campaign, Baume and Mercier is associating with actor Andy Garcia as the new star ambassador of its now famous humanitarian initiative.
