Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph (Black Dial)

December 3, 2011

Here’s a first look at the Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph that will be officially unveiled January 2012 in Geneva. Although this watch is merely a new color-variation on the same model introduced at SIHH 2011, it is hard not to appreciate the new look. Though the dial is a bit busy, it is busy in a tasteful way, and the brown earth-toned dial markings and strap go very nicely with the black dial. The one con for this piece is the price — the 2011 model listed at $7,500, which puts it in competition with some Rolex, Omega and other brands with strong value propositions. This said, it looks like the watch is selling grey market for closer to $5,500, a bit more reasonable.
