Baume & Mercier’s Capeland collection 2012/2013

Baume & Mercier’s Capeland collection 2012/2013

Maybe you are in need of a new time piece? Maybe you’re in the search of a present for someone special? Or maybe you just wanted to check out the new Baume & Mercier’s Capeland collection? Regardless: Welcome, you have come to the right place!

Baume & Mercier’s Capeland collection 2012/2013 is a delightful mix of refined watchmaking, attention to detail and timelessness. The watches are distinguished by the two-tone dial, allowing the collection to draw on the aesthetics of the 1950s. We’ve picked our three favourite styles:

Going from left to right, the Capeland 10068 watch blends polished steel with a black dial, gilt vintage Breguet-style hands and a brown alligator strap with ivory overstitching. Round and polished like a pebble, it is the perfect “seaside” watch for a man in love with the great outdoors.

If you are less outdoorsy, and in the mood for something a bit different, then there is the Capeland 10006 steel model, where Baume & Mercier have opted for an off-white dial with blued steel hands and a black alligator strap. A beautiful watch with a pop of colour, making checking the time just that little bit more special.

If these two don’t quite float your boat, maybe the Capeland 10007 is the one to consider. This watch takes us to the peak of refinement with its satin-polished 18K red gold machined case, complementing the grey dial with gilt hands and the warmth of the brown alligator strap with ivory overstitching.

We’ve picked our favourite three – which one do you like best?

The All Black Horizon by Ikepod comes with a self-winding mechanical movement. But what we love is the monochromatic design. No matter what they say, black is always in. Water resistant up to 50 metres, the Marc Newson-designed black dial and titanium case is for the contemporary urban aesthete.
Ideal for: The one who places a high emphasis on contemporary visuals when it comes to his timepiece.

Sleek, suave and sophisticated aptly describes the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m 42mm model.

A New Chapter For Baume et Mercier

As a new chapter unfolds for Baume et Mercier in 2012 so does a new venture. The first boutique in China launched this year marking a great transition for the brand as it’s the first Baume et Mercier house to open in the Asia region. The boutique located in Chongqing Time Square reflects the chic understated Hampton’s living in its décor. Baume et Merciers key values of sharing, authenticity and continuity are evident in the ambience, which allows visitors to feel at home- as they would do in The Hampton’s, whilst being immersed into the Baume et Mercier inspiration.

CEO Alain Zimmermann headed the inauguration event and cut the ribbon himself alongside famous celebrity Ms Dong Jie, an actress close to the brand and Miss Universe China Roseline Luo who performed the novelties of 2012 which were launched in China in April.

To commemorate the opening, the 2012 new collection exhibition arrived in store; a special privilege for the boutique as it was the first appearance for the collection after Geneva.

With a 182- year history of exquisite watchmaking Baume et Mercier offers a rich heritage and cutting edge style that results in timeless keepsakes for all of those pivotal occasions.

Chasing Harry Winston

The Midnight Big Date is a new edition to Harry Winston’s Midnight collection. Powered by a self-winding movement, its black or silver-toned dial features a circular guilloché pattern. The sunburst satin-brushed hour circle is positioned at 12 o’clock while a “porthole” at 6 o’clock reveals the twin-aperture date display. We love the single diamond perced above the day date. Very dandy.
