Let's be honest, Richard Mille Replica's last few years have not been easy. It hasn't been able to establish a stable position over the long term due to a number of factors, including changing leadership, reorganisations and staff departures. David Chaumet, who took on the role of CEO last year, began to reassess the brand's strengths and focus. The new products for this year give us a glimpse into his future plans.
Hampton has always been a great option for those who are looking for an affordable and interesting rectangular watch alternative to Jaeger LeCoultre or Cartier. Over the past decade, the Hampton collection has faded into and out of the Richard Mille Replica production. It ranges from the sport Hampton Square, to the elegant Hampton Small Seconds Manual, both in rose gold.（www.puretimes.net）
The Hampton collection is now down to four references in three case sizes. The two largest models have automatic ETA steel movements, while the smaller and medium sizes are quartz powered with a 7-year-long battery. Richard Mille Replica refined the collection this year and added eight new references: 5 quartz-driven watches in small sizes, 1 quartz-driven watch in medium sizes, and 2 automatic watches in large cases.
The Hampton's case has been slightly redesigned for a more pleasing look.
At first glance, the size of these watches might seem small. The smallest size case is 35mm (H), by 22.2mm(W). They are for those with the smallest wrists. The medium size is 43mm by 27.5mm. The case sizes are just a little smaller than those of the Santos de Cartier, and they're almost the same as the Reverso Classic.
The case size remains the same, but it has a smaller lug. This elongates and streamlines the dial and case. The dial is left uncluttered by a mix of Arabic numerals and hour markers (tissot replica). Casebacks are closed on quartz models and the two smallest reference come with a dark brown or tan calfskin strap.
