Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph (Video)

Baume & Mercier Chronograph

For 2011 the 180-year-old brand is launching a new chronograph in its Capeland line. The 44mm case, available in steel or 18K red gold, houses a La Joux-Perret automatic bi-compax chronograph movement with flyback and date. The dial offers a distinctly vintage appeal with telemeter and tachymeter scales. Blued or gilt Breguet hands complete the retro look. Find wallpaper and prices inside.

The movement is visible through a sapphire caseback and features blued steel screws and a circular-grained finish for the plate and the bridges. The rotor is engraved with the brand’s emblematic Phi, further adorned with “Côtes de Genève” and snailed décor.

The steel version is priced at $7000, while the 18K red gold model retails at $18,000.

Complete specifications appear below the images, which may be enlarged with a click.

    My name is Mike Disher and I am WatchTime's technical editor. My interest in watches dates to 1972 and I caught the internet bug in 1997. In 1999 I combined these interests by joining TimeZone.com as its first full-time employee, and later that year I attended my first Basel Fair. I managed TZ from 2000-2007, and in 2008 I joined WatchTime.
