Despite its relatively modern sounding name, the Capeland watch collection from Baume & Mercier is a sure nod to the past. The collection reflects on traditional watch manufacture and a vintage-inspired look which brings something incredibly unique to the line. Retro-inspired watches are becoming a very popular choice for the modern gent. Wristwatches featuring vintage elements and classic leather straps are fashionable as well as practical. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that the Baume & Mercier Capeland is a popular collectable for many a dedicated Swiss watch collector.
Some of the designs feature sporty yet elegant chronographs powered by meticulously crafted automatic movements. Others are a little simpler, whilst the Worldtimer model from our collection is a timepiece that combines both classic beauty with cutting edge technology. If you are looking for a reliable wristwatch that nods to some of Baume & Mercier's past style, the Capeland collection is certainly worth a visit. The timepieces from this special line are crafted from the finest materials – stainless steel cases, for example, equipped with impressive water resistant qualities. Inside these cases lie impeccable automatic movements, each one expertly assembled and placed into the heart of the watch with precision. Every Baume & Mercier automatic watch from this collection is put on view through a sapphire-backed case. This allows the wearer a clear and crisp view into the manufacture of a movement through an anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass sheet. The components of the movement which work in synergy together are a sight to behold. Many Baume & Mercier Capeland watches are completed on an authentic leather strap. As expected, the material strap, once combined with the details on the dial, is sure to enhance a vintage-inspired look on the wrist.
Baume & Mercier Capeland watches are available in a range of different coloured dials – the style of each watch differing slightly to the next. The Baume & Mercier Capeland Automatic Worldtimer watch from our collection is a practical device powered by a Swiss made automatic movement presented through a sapphire glass exhibition caseback. The dial itself pays tribute to beautiful retro elements – the off-white dial being the most notable design feature to enhance this desired style. The blued hands are a beautiful touch. They work well with the central hands of the chronograph counters and the minute detailing around the outer edge of the dial. As this Capeland watch is a Worldtimer model, the cities are presented around the periphery of the dial as well as a 24 hour track. The watch allows the gentleman to keep track of local time and home time easily, securing to the wrist with a classic blue leather strap equipped with stainless steel foldable clasp and push pieces for release.
Baume & Mercier Capeland watches are without a doubt, varied and practical time-keeping tools that promise to look good on the wrist no matter where and how they are worn. Whether combined with a smart pinstripe suit or accompanied with a set of platinum gent's cufflinks for the office - these charismatic wristwatches will always be a popular choice for those who take ultimate pride in their appearance.
