Up For Sale is my Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph.
There’s just something about the elements of this watch that just work really well together.
It has a vintage feel with the font on the dial, the telemeter scale, blued hands and the large pushers and crown.
The chronograph features a flyback function to instantly restart timing without stopping and resetting.
Its a stylish piece that, like much of Baume & Mercier’s range spans the range from casually sporty to slightly dressy.
Its fitted to a nice black alligator strap with contrasting white stitching and tang buckle.
Out of a collection of around 60, it has seen only modest wear and the case and both crystals are blemish free. There are some faint swirlies on the buckle and a bit of a crease in the strap from wearing it at my size.
Bought new from a dealer, it includes the full set of manual, warranty card box, which features a nifty little travel case, and hang tags.
I’m asking for $1,990 USD shipped to the USA or Australia, extra additional cost to other parts of the world at actual cost. Bank transfer preferred, but will consider PayPal for a verified buyer.
Plenty of references available upon request.
