Baume and Mercier Capeland Watch - Relaxed Elegance with Light Sporty Feel

Oct 28, 2011
The horological company Baume & Mercier is pleased to bring out its new Capeland watch, with its curves and crystals making one think of living at the seaside. The soft contours of the model remind of sea-weathered stones. It is encouraged by the aesthetically symmetric geometry of the single-push chronograph, created in 1948.

Distinguished by relaxed elegance with a light sporty feel, the new Baume & Mercier watch is set in a steel case. It measures 42mm in diameter and is 15.1mm thick. The case demonstrates polished and satinized finishes. Its water-resistance is assured down to 50 meters.

The top of the model is covered by a high-grade sapphire crystal. The same glass is used for the case-back, which allows the user to admire an oscillating weight, engraved with the brand’s signature Phi symbol and embellished with Cotes de Geneve and snailed patterns.

The oscillating weight is incorporated into the architecture of a self-winding mechanical movement with a fly-back chronograph function. Produced by Lajoux-Perret, it is fitted with blued steel screws as well as a circular-grained plate and bridges.

The new Baume & Mercier Capeland watch comes equipped with a brown dial with red, black and white elements. Completed with Arabic numerals, it ensures hours and minutes by means of centralized leaf-shaped hands. The small seconds are shown in a counter at 9 o’clock.

Providing chronograph features is a 30-minute sub-dial at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock as well as a central seconds hand. The date indication appears in an aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock. The range of useful functions is completed by tachymeter and telemeter scales on the periphery of the dial.

A harmony between design and comfort for the wearer, the new Baume & Mercier watch is accompanied by a brown alligator leather strap with light-colored stitching.
