This automatic watch balances urbane style with excellence in watchmaking. It comes with 21 internal jewels and 38 hours of power reserve. The sleek rectangular stainless steel case is complemented by an opaline and grained silver coloured dial. It comes with an interchangeable black leather strap with fine grey stitching.

Overview

Of the 2020 Hampton releases, the 10522 could perhaps be referred to as the ‘little brother’.  Measuring slightly smaller than its siblings (10528 & 10523) at 43mm x 27.5mm it presents something of a more elegant and dressier feel. The case design features straight and flat surfaces, blending into uncomplicated contours. Held side on, the top edge takes on a subtle concave line mirrored by the sapphire crystal above providing a beautiful elliptical shape between the two components. The case is completely polished lending further to the overall elegance

The dial, opaline in the centre, is surrounded by a deeply blasted outer rectangle giving a satisfying contrast of depth and texture, but Baume and Mercier have been extremely subtle in it’s execution. Hours are marked by riveted ruthenium plated indices with Arabic numerals denoting 6 & 12 o’clock, the dial’s clean appearance is enhanced with only a minimum of text applied, the word ‘Automatic’ balancing things out perfectly with the ‘Baume & Mercier’ just below 12 o’clock. Bevelled sword shaped hands complete the classic understated look.

Using the pushers either side of the signed buckle releases the tri-folding clasp, allowing the Alligator strap to slip over the wrist, where we can now enjoy the polished case back featuring a sapphire viewing window where the Baume and Mercier decorated ETA 2671 movement, offering a 38 hour power reserve,  can be fully appreciated.

The 10522 comes with a water resistance rating of 5ATM (approx. 50m) and has a standard manufacturers warranty of 2 years.

Personalisation

Versatility is key in this day and age. At 1010 Boutique we carry a range of straps for all Baume and Mercier timepieces in a variety of lengths. We recommend changing your straps regularly – perhaps simply for something different, maybe to suit your mood or a special occasion, but in doing so, it is possible to create a completely different look and feel of your wristwatch.

If a particular material, colour or style isn’t readily available, then we can offer a bespoke service to cater for your exact requirements at a very competitive price and minimal lead time.
