Hamptons collection unveiled by timepiece creator

First published: 16-08-2011

A leading timepiece creator has launched a new range entitled the Hamptons collection in tribute to the New York holiday spot.

Baume & Mercier unveiled its range in honour of the destination because of its relaxed vibe and its art and cultural diversity.

Alain Zimmerman, chief executive officer, highlighted the Hamptons' international history of cultural activity, commerce and most of all, boating.

He said: "We have always created watches that define special moments, so with this concept, the idea comes full circle.

"Life is about moments - with family, friends, relaxing."

The group hopes that the timepieces will bring the spirit of the community to the rest of the world.

Among the men's collection, there is an automatic chronograph featuring Arabic numerals in either black or anthracite coloured dials.

The versions also include a rose gold piece that comes with a 42-hour power reserve.

Meanwhile, the ladies range is adorned with diamonds for a "sophisticated appeal" and with case backs that are suitable for a personal engraving.

Ultimately, these are watches that embody life's best moments.
