Adding an unexpected twist to the lineup, the new Cosmograph Daytona emerges as a delightful surprise. With captivating mother-of-pearl dials and a bezel adorned with gemstones, these watches have been crafted in 18k white gold, and the 40mm case that defies convention. Setting with 36 large round diamonds totalling 3.26 carats, it’s a generous display of gem weight.

There are two versions of the Cosmograph Daytona that demand attention. The first features a white mother-of-pearl dial complemented by black mother-of[1]pearl sub dials. In contrast, the second version boasts a reverse arrangement: a black mother-of-pearl dial with white sub dials. What sets these dials apart is their three-dimensional texture—a departure from the norm. The mother-of-pearl material used here comes from a distinct part of the shell, resulting in a rugged yet dazzling appearance, while textured MOP reflects light in intriguing ways.

Under the hood, a first-class chronometer movement ensures precision, with a remarkable 72-hour power reserve. This Daytona keeps ticking without winding, meanwhile, the black mother-of-pearl version pairs beautifully with an 18k gold Oyster bracelet.

Baume & Mercier has expanded its Hampton Collection by introducing a new quartz monochrome black version. The Hampton Collection, which dates back to 1994, pays homage to the 1920s Art Deco style. While Baume & Mercier had previously released automatic versions of the Hampton, this latest iteration features a high-accuracy quartz movement, resulting in a sleeker and more minimalist aesthetic.

The new Hampton watch boasts a polished stainless[1]steel case with dimensions of 35mm x 22.2mm and a slim 6.9mm thickness. This steel cabochon-shaped crown, adorned with a black agate stone, adding an elegant touch reminiscent of another well-known brand. With a water resistance rating of 5 ATM (50 meters), and sleek silhouette which is further enhanced by the smooth-edged, no-stitch black calfskin strap, including quick-release functionality for easy interchangeability and secures with a pin buckle.

It proudly displays the Baume & Mercier logo, their polished ruthenium Phi logo, and the “Swiss Made” label, creating a clean and sophisticated appearance. Additionally, expanding the range of no-stitch straps in various colours to the minimalist aesthetic across the Hampton collection builds welcome enhancement of the black monochrome lacquered dial to the Hampton family.

The most distinctive feature of the new Cut watch is their case design, particularly the unconventional placement of the crown at 1:30. Similar to the H08 model, the Cut’s shape is somewhat elusive—it’s predominantly round but also incorporating a touch of square aesthetics. It doesn’t conform to the typical barrel or tonneau shapes, nor can it be described as a perfect “squircle.” The combination of a round bezel, round minute track, and circular numeral layout gives the Cut an overall rounded appearance, making it a playful and intriguing design.

Regarding sizing, the Cut caters to both men and women. Despite being available in a single 36mm size, Hermes refers to it as the “large model” on their website, hinting that smaller sizes may be introduced in the future. The Cut’s bezel options include rose gold or steel, with or without diamonds, appealing to a diverse audience.

The exhibition case back, secured with screws, provides a view of the well-decorated rotor and bridges adorned with the brand’s signature “H” pattern. It’s evident that Hermes aims to leverage the success of the H08 watch by incorporating several elements that contributed to its popularity into the design of the Cut. Well, the Cut also serves as a blank canvas for Hermes to build upon, hinting at a platform that can be expanded and customised with additional colours, materials, and options in the future.
