Among all the watch series of Baume & Mercier, Humberton is perhaps the one that best fits the brand philosophy. The Humberton watch has been re-interpreted last year, and it also exudes the relaxed atmosphere of beach life in addition to the historical models. Whether it is a men’s watch or a women’s watch, the refined design of the Humberton series reveals a unique sense of fashion, which has become a symbol of long-lasting charm.
Inspired by a museum model from the 1940s, the rectangular case of the Humberton series combines architectural lines with the beauty of leisure life. The watch combines extraordinary temperamental art decoration with warm-toned materials such as 18K red gold, carbon black or silver; the sense of design and watchmaking technology complement each other, finally creating a sophisticated watch that blends real emotions and commemorates precious moments in life.
The existing Humberton men’s watch seems to be missing something. With this in mind, in 2012, Baume & Mercier introduced a new stainless steel bracelet style for this series of men’s watches, matching the metal bracelet of women’s watches. These two new automatic watches feature an ergonomically polished / satin-finished bracelet with a new triple-fold safety clasp, making them safer and easier to open.
The Humberton series ushered in a special moment of its own in the technology development phase: the biggest challenge to Humberton’s re-creation was finding the right tools to create geometric lines. Adhering to the motto of Baume & Mercier’s dedication to creating the highest quality watches, the technical team knows that the completion of the Humberton series is not easy. The technical team took months to finally put the elegance of the Humberton collection into practice.
