These were announced at Baselworld and have been available since August but as we don’t get out much here at Beastie Folly these have only just caught our eye. Both myself and Lady P like the look of this watch so we will track one down in the flesh to have a proper look. Hamilton’s promotional blurb is a glorious exercise in flowery language and I particularly like, “applied indexes visually seduce with their feminine appeal”.
“Lass” I said to Mrs P, “Any watch that visually seduces with its feminine appeal is a match for your wrist.” Well Ok I didn’t say that but I’m going to. I’m saving it for when she tries it on in the shop!
£420 and £440 in the larger size. I’ll let you know if we still love it when we have tried it on Lady Peanut’s wrist.
The shaping of the Hamilton Bagley gains its uniqueness through varying heights between the horizontal and vertical case edges and an intriguing combination of straight and curved lines. The sides of the case extend to become elegant lugs. A love of detail is evident in the watch’s domed, multi-level dial with a stamped central panel in a quilted effect. This rises like a protective archway above the small, circular second counter at 6 o’clock. Sword-shaped pink gold plated hands and matching applied indexes visually seduce with their feminine appeal.
Accommodating every successful woman’s desire to be different, the Hamilton Bagley comes in two sizes and with a choice of attachment variations. Adding a note of nobility is a genuine ostrich leather strap in beige with a pin buckle. Alternatively, a three-row stainless steel bracelet with an easy click fasten is confidently contemporary. The special fastening mechanism makes it simple to alternate between the two straps should the wearer wish to have both to meet the specific demands of all occasions and moods.
