Baume & Mercier Capeland Collection

The inspiration behind the contemporary reinterpretation of this collection is a historic timepiece – a single-push chronograph from 1948.

With its “chevé” crystal and domed case back, this watch is a direct reference to the “galet” pocket watches of the early 19th century. Its ergonomic shape, accentuated by the aesthetically symmetric geometry of the top and bottom, is the primary source of inspiration for the design of the Capeland watch.

The suggestive strength of Capeland comes not only from its name. Everything about this watch suggests seaside living: the marked curve of its case back and crystal is an irresistible reminder of the soft contours of a sea-weathered stone. The shape of the horn, both short and elegant, further accentuates the roundness of the case.

Capeland is also distinguished by its two-toned dial, a subtle reminder of a 1950s aesthetic. A highly-accomplished watch, it includes both a tachymeter and a telemeter, while the case is adorned with polished and satined finishes. All watch models from Capeland Collection have a water-resistance up to 50 meters.

The heart of the collection, a chronograph for all models, promotes relaxed elegance with a light sporty feel marked by straightforward numerals and a touch of red on the end of the seconds hand and the telemeter. In this spirit, the calfskin strap with light-colored stitching stands out and harmonizes with the trendy color scheme used on the dial: slate gray, anthracite, copper-colored, brown, silver-colored, black and white.

Infinitely comfortable, Capeland perfectly hugs the wrist, an eloquent demonstration of Baume & Mercier’s expertise: a harmony between design and comfort for the wearer. A point of pride within the Capeland collection, these emblematic watches come equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement with a flyback chronograph function.

This Bi-compax movement, manufactured by Lajoux-Perret, is enriched with blued steel screws and a circular-grained finish for the plate and the bridges. Its sapphire crystal case back enables a view of the oscillating weight engraved with the brand’s emblematic Phi, further adorned with “Côtes de Genève” and snailed décor.
