For this handsome Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback I am going to dive straight into a long list explaining why I love this watch. The dial: the white dial, unencumbered by luminous hands or number markers, the instantly vintage vibe is conveyed through the blue hands and black painted Arabic numerals. The dual register chronograph sub-dials are flanked by an outer Telemeter track as well as a Tachymeter scale. On any other watch this combination of functions might appear cluttered, but the Capeland pulls it off with classic elegance. The case: measuring in at a substantial 44mm, the case fits the wrist comfortably. This is mainly a result of cleverly designed lugs, which are a touch shorter than others and have a slight curve downward. As a result the 44mm case fits and feels more like a 42mm case.The contrast between the mirror finished bezel and lug tops contrast beautifully against the matte finish on the sides of the case. The slightly oversized crown has sturdy feel when winding the watch or setting the time. The pump style chrono pushers are an absolute dream to use. The slight dome gives a softness to the operation of the chronograph. Thankfully the sapphire case back allows the owner to gaze upon the movement, La Joux-Perret calibre 8147-2 which is beautifully decorated with perlage, Geneva stripes, blued screws and the open-worked oscillating rotor which bears the Baume et Mercier Phi symbol. The movement: as mentioned, this watch is powered by the La Joux-Perret calibre 8147-2 with the addition of a Flyback function, which is a blast to use! With this Capeland Flyback Baume & Mercier looked back to the glory days of the chronograph and took all the right influences from their past. This watch comes complete with box, papers and service papers.
