SIHH 2012 Preview: Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph


Yesterday we launched the first post about the new watches that are being launched at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) will start again, where 19 brands will be exhibiting their new marvelous watch collections. And, Baume & Mercier just released the pictures of the Capeland Flyback Chronograph 42mm in stainless steel with black dial.

Baume & Mercier is a real watch brand that has been founded in 1830 and has seen many faces. The last couple of years they went back to the basics and in 2011 they presented a complete new face of the brand and it’s collection with the following four families:

– Linea (Ladies Collection)
– Capeland (Male Mechanical Collection)
– Classima (The Classic Collection)
– Hampton (The Rectangle Collection)

This year we already guessed would be a consolidation year and the launch of the smaller version of last year’s flagship model: The 46mm Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph with reference 10006.

It was a logical and we dare to say wise move to make such an elegant and historic piece in a smaller version. The 2011 version with a white dial is 46mm and this years edition is a more modest 42mm, like all the other Capeland models in the collection. Both models are inspired by the original version from 1948!

Each part of the self-winding movement with the great flyback chronograph function, which is manufactured by La Joux Perret, is visible through the sapphire crystal case-back, including an open-worked rotor, with the” Côtes de Genève” design finish and snail décor, with the Greek Phi letter, which Baume & Mercier uses as their logo.

    Thanks for this great watch review!

  6. Simon Says:

    You have to love the sapphire crystal caseback… I don’t know why visible movements didn’t become a popular trend until recently, because while I admit they don’t suit every timepiece (ie very conservative business watches), they sure are a pleasant addition to most.

  7. Simon Says:

    More clear casebacks? I honestly couldn’t be happier with this trend! I have yet to see an internal movement that I didn’t enjoy watching. And while I appreciate some watch collectors’ concerns that exposed movements are a sort of “poor man’s tourbillon,” I think that critique is misplaced; a hyponotic, pleasant-looking movement can be quite enjoyable all on its own.
