Capeland Flyback

Capeland, the chronograph of authentic moments

The Watch Quote™ - January 26th, 2011

The Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Steel watch - Ref.: 10006

A man, a boat, the horizon… certain watches exist whose universe is clear at first glance: Capeland is a perfect example. With its sport-chic design, retro accents and warm tones, it is an invitation to wander, a symbol of the connecting line between a man and his dreams.

The memory of a “galet” watch

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. One further detail, Capeland is water-resistant up to 50 meters.




Watches with a relaxed and contemporary spirit

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.


Spotlight on the emblematic pieces

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.

Baume & Mercier Capeland historical piece

These exceptional watches distinguish themselves by a “chevé” crystal, a domed dial in retro colors, and “Breguet” type hands. Offered in two versions: stainless steel or 18 ct. red gold which shimmers like antique copper, these models come with a dark brown or black alligator skin strap which gives them a final touch of sophistication.

A mastered combination of historical inspiration and the powerful evocation of seaside living, Capeland is already a true Baume & Mercier classic.
