Baume & Mercier launches Capeland Worldtimer, the globe-trotters’ watch

Baume & Mercier has always given emphasis to the travel element and it was the house pphilosophy as well, from the very first years of the Frères Baume timepiece trading post, founded 183 years ago by Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume. As homage to this rich past and passion for travel, Baume & Mercier presented their latest creation, the Capeland Worldtimer. This watch will be a delight for globe-trotters and international businessmen who are constantly on the go. They will appreciate reading the time at a glance in the 24 cities chosen to represent the times zones of the world, thanks to the exquisite complication within the watch.

The signature pebble-shaped watch has a vintage design and 44 mm model is available in 18K red gold or polished satin-brushed steel with a restrained but easy-to-read dial in ashen gray or off-white, with a subtle tone-on-tone refinement. This model’s self-winding mechanical movement can be seen through its sapphire case back.

The new 44 mm Capeland Worldtimer in 18K red gold will appeal to fine watch enthusiasts as it contains a self-winding mechanical movement renowned for its precision and endurance. The delicately manufactured movement, featuring premium fittings that are visible through the sapphire case back, displays the time simultaneously in the twenty-four time zones, and gives the date in an open counter at the three o’clock position. This timepiece is mounted on an elegant, chic brown alligator strap in the same tone as its 24-hour ring.

The Steel Capeland Worldtimer satin-brushed steel watch with its subtly timeless shape is presented in the very contemporary 44 mm dial diameter. Its off-white dial makes it easy to read the local time, as well as the time in all twenty-four time zones of the world. Watch connoisseurs will be delighted in the mechanism of this self-winding caliber, visible through the sapphire case back. The blue alligator strap, is chosen in a shade matching the 24-hour ring of the watch.
