My Baume & Mercier 8753 Hampton Milleis Review

I have to say, I haven’t reviewed nearly as many Baume and Merciers as I have Invictas, however, I can already tell that the quality level is head and shoulders above Invicta. I mean, that’s not really saying anything since Invicta specializes in budget watches, and Baume and Mercier specializes in mid to mid-high grade watches. It’s actually what I would expect, I’m just saying that I’m really enjoying reviewing these superior quality watches.

Anyways, let’s go ahead and talk more specifically about the Hampton Milleis 8753.

I’ll start by going over the movement…I believe the watch is run by a Valjouc 7753, which is a 25 jewel automatic movement that typically features a date display at the 6 o’clock position. I know that Baume and Mercier uses the Valjoux movements for the majority of their Hampton collection, so I’m almost positive that this is the movement that powers this watch.

Now, the Valjoux 7753 is a very popular movement and is manufactured by ETA, a high end Swiss movement manufacturer. The watch is respected for its precision and durability. They have a reserve power of 40 hours, so you don’t actually have to wear this watch everyday, but you should every other day if you don’t plan on buying a winder. If you do get a winder, which is recommended for anyone buying an automatic, I would suggest this one:

The construction of the watch is superb…A stainless steel rectangular case surrounds a Gulloche lined dial with blued stainless steel hands. I really love this, and the sapphire watch window is the industry standard for perfect clarity and ultra scratch resistance. The brown alligator leather strap is both comfortable and durable, although the watch isn’t really designed for water use. It is water resistant to 50 meters, but if at all possible I wouldn’t get this watch wet.

The design looks great…Sleek and slim, but masculine at the same time. The brown leather really makes the watch a lot more subtle than say an Omega or Rolex, however, for many men this is a good thing. With a subtle men’s watch, such as the 8753 Baume et Mercier watch, you can wear it just as easily with some jeans and a t shirt as a suit. Chances are not many folks that don’t know anything about watches will be complimenting you on this watch, but no one will dispute the quality of the piece, and anyone who knows anything about watches will be very impressed with this piece.

My Verdict of the Baume & Mercier 8753 Hampton Milleis

With an automatic watch as accurate as the Baume Mercier 8753 Hampton Milleis the only thing to look at is the rest of the design. With stainless steel construction and sapphire crystal, you’re going to be enjoying this watch for awhile. I honestly don’t have a lot bad to say…The clasp IS a bit difficult to adjust. The clasp is supposed to be totally customizable for a perfect fit, and it is, however it’s also kind of hard to figure out.

All in all the watch is great, there’s no doubt about it. Accurate and attractive, pretty satisfactory if I do say so myself.

Well anyways, thanks for reading through my Baume Mercier 87533 Hampton watch review…I appreciate your taking the time to read through. I know all that stuff about how the average time spent on a web page is like 10 seconds or something, so if you’ve made it that far, thanks for reading. I really think that you’ll be happy with this beautiful time piece, but feel free to check out the rest of for some more ideas. I wish you the best of luck in your watch shopping!
