Our friends at Chronos24, the Polish watch portal and blog, just published a very nice review on the Baume & Mercier Capeland Chronograph Flyback. As you know, Baume & Mercier was one of the nicest surprises for us during the SIHH 2013. Although they’ve sent us pre-SIHH press releases, you have to see watches in the flesh before you (we) should judge.

    I love the styling! Let’s hope this is the start of a trend that revives the fantastic styling of the 1940’s and 1950’s chronographs, this one even has the spiraling chrono scales and all that. Too bad it has a VJ7750 movement (and for that steep price!), and that the case is 44 mm and not 36 mm or something, like it used to be in the 1940’s.

  • Thanks for your comments Bas. I love the way Baume & Mercier is going with their Capeland and Clifton series as well.

    I agree with you on the Valjoux 7750 movement, but 36mm would be really too small for current standards I think. However, 40mm would be a perfect compromise 🙂
