There are some watches that express their entire world at first glance: Capeland is definitely one of them. The marked curve of the case back and crystal irresistibly evokes the look and feel of a polished sea-weathered stone. Capeland also stands out by its two-toned dial, which is subtly reminiscent of 50s aesthetics. Interpreted as a chronograph in all models, Capeland is a study in relaxed elegance with a light sporty signature for the core collection.
These timepieces are clearly destined for giving, as confirmed by their case backs adorned with a “Sundeck” décor and especially designed by Baume & Mercier to allow for a message or date to be engraved. On the emblematic pieces of the Capeland line, the back reveals the oscillating weight. These exceptional models, equipped with a “chevé” crystal and “Breguet” type hands, are driven by a self-winding mechanical movement made by the Manufacture La Joux-Perret, complete with a Flyback chronograph function. Available with a stainless steel or 18K red gold case, they are sure to make the heart of those who receive them beat faster.
