Baume & Mercier released its remodeled Capeland watch in the SIHH exhibition in Geneva this year. Within this watch test featurette from your October 2012 problem, WatchTime gives this luxury-sport chronograph the once-over, with original photos by OK-Photography.
The timepiece includes a harmonious design having a brown sunburst finish around the dial, a stainless-steel situation along with a brown leather strap.
We found the dial especially attractive, using its color plan of brown, red-colored, black and whitened and it is subdials inside a shaped tri-compax arrangement. We loved the narrow hands and also the different levels around the dial. Because of tachymeter and telemeter tracks, it’s easy to calculate speed and distance. However, the dimensions and position from the shows makes the timepiece difficult to read. The reflective chronograph hands, the excessively lengthy minutes hands and also the modest quantity of luminous material around the hour and minutes hands and also at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock also reduce the high quality Baume & Mercier overall legibility from the watch.
A narrow bezel and significantly curving lugs direct your vision towards the dial. We loved the convex crown, which inserts snugly from the situation and it is embellished using the brand’s logo design. The crown’s shape and fluting allow it to be simple to grasp and hold. The top grade Baume & Mercier generously sized chrono pushers will also be simple to use.
The situation has simple yet careful finishing. Even just in the extended squeeze crown remains safely sitting. However, the lugs possess some sharp edges. The caseback is guaranteed with six screws. It's curved, making the timepiece comfortable to put on.
The best Baume & Mercier supple leather strap and flat, stainless-steel, double-folding clasp will also be comfortable. The strap is padded and highlighted having a whitened seam, and also the clasp comes with an outer bar and prong that keep your watch safely in position. The execution from the clasp is clean but has some porsche design replica watches. For example, whenever you look carefully you can observe minor marks in the sprucing up process. The cut leather strap is attached safely towards the situation and doesn't change unnatural. Regrettably, the clasp isn't outfitted with deployant buttons, so you should utilize a little of pressure to spread out the clasp. Aesthetically, the strap and clasp make the perfect match for that situation and dial.
