The new Baume & Mercier Capeland Flyback Chronograph watch is a modern re-interpretation of the classic monopusher produced by the brand in 1948.
The 42mm red gold or stainless steel case surrounds the intricately detailed dial that contributes to the Capeland’s distinguished presence.
The blue (or gold) “Breguet-style” hands, dark brown (or black) alligator strap and sapphire-crystal display back add to the overall aesthetic.
The new 2011 Piaget Emperador Coussin Tourbillon Ultra-Thin automatic watch holds the title of the thinnest self-winding timepiece with a tourbillon escapement.
