    BAUME & MERCIER Hampton Spirt 8254 - Real???

    Hello Everyone,

    Newbie here was hoping anyone could give me any hints on what to look for in a B&M fake.

    I recently purchased a B&M Hampton Series. Attached are some pictures. Everything feels good about the used piece, but quite frankly, I have never seen or felt a real one. Does anyone have one (Model 8254)? The serial number is No 3614***. Anything I should be looking for in a replica?

    What are your thoughts from pictures?

    Thanks for your time!

    Yes it's real, nothing like buying first and asking later.

    Another vote for genuine. The spirit line was not a very big mover for them so it would be curious for me to envision them being replicated(i also own the white dialed version but with the black strap)
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...

    Kinda like the male version of the Hampton City.

    Thanks everyone for the insight.
    I actually took it to a B&M dealer and they authenticated it is real.

    Thanks again!
    Great site and great forum!
