    A yellow dial wonder: Baume et Mercier Capeland Titanium Diver

    Here I am, doing my morning ritual of drinking my coffee with that annoying it's-too-hot sound while simultaneously yawning and watch-net-surfing. Now, I'm very difficult to please with respect to watches; but, when I do find something I like, I get ecstatic and it sticks with me. You could never of had convinced me that elegance (read: luxurious) and yellow dial were in any fashion synonymous, until this morning's pleasant discovery: the Baume et Mercier Capeland S XXL Titanium Diver. With its yellow woven kevlar dial, speaking it does little justice for the pure beaut that it is. Its engine is the acclaimed ETA 2892-A2 movement, it has a 43mm bezel (47mm with crown protector), and the rest of the appreciative details are found here from this fine-tuned review: DeskDivers.com - Baume & Mercier Capeland S XXL
    I'm sure many of you have come across this watch in the past (it's been out since 2003), but as it's been so long since its debut, I think it proper to give it another shout out. Enjoy!

    Best,

    Love mine, it has to be seen in person to be believed.

    It is and will continue to be a classic imo, I'll hold onto mine till my boys pry it out of my cold dead hand.

    I love this watch...I just really wish they made a SS version...not a fan of Ti. But the watch is beautiful.

    Probably the only B&M that's been of any interest to me; such a stunner! Everytime I see photos of it, I regret not buying a new one before they were discontinued. This and the Orient Star 300m JDM yellow-dial are the two best yellow dialed divers IMHO.

    For the most part, I am not a fan of onion crowns. But the B&M's onion crown truly stands out for the better with its edgy trait.

    If you told me to look at a yellow dial-onion crown combo watch, I would have dismissed it without taking so much as a glance. I'm glad I looked. I don't think anyone else can create this combo, while staying original and beautiful.
