Capeland series (Capeland), capture the real moment
Each Baume & Mercier watch collection has its own pedigree, giving the watch the advantages and inspiration of historical models, as well as easy to identify characteristics; the Kaplan automatic chronograph, which reflects the sports and leisure style, is the best proof of this . The Caplan series cleverly blends historical classics, modern styles, and elegant charm to bring the joy of celebrating the moments of life to the wearer. The collection is inspired by a historic classic: the one-button chronograph manufactured in 1948. The round case of the Kaplan series has a unique appearance, a symbol of classics and leisure. The watch is designed with daily needs in mind and can also be considered a travel watch. The charming Caplan series is the epitome of easy life and individual power. In fact, from the perspective of Baume & Mercier, the appearance, color and function of this series are the perfect expression of the theme of beach life.
Caplan series welcomes stainless steel bracelet watch
Whether it is 42 mm or 44 mm in diameter, the most special feature of the Kaplan automatic chronograph is the new watch with a polished / satin-finished steel bracelet and a triple folding safety clasp. Adhering to the design concept of this series, the ergonomic curve makes the new buckle safer and easier to open. The bracelet is perfectly connected to the arc-shaped sapphire crystal, which not only reflects the comfortable touch, but also reveals the sports and leisure style. The bracelet and polished / satin-finished case work together to create the warmth of the Cap blue. The 42mm model is equipped with the Valjoux 7753 automatic movement, while the 44mm model is equipped with the La Joux-Perret 8120 automatic movement. Both watches feature a chronograph, rangefinder, speedometer, date display, and wear-resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The sapphire crystal case back with 6 screws allows you to see the oscillating weight with the snailed Geneva pattern and the brand’s logo PHI. Water-resistant to approximately 50 meters.
The Hampton, the epitome of intimate fusion
Of all the Baume & Mercier watch collections, Humberton is perhaps the one that best fits the brand philosophy. The Humberton watch has been re-interpreted last year, and it also exudes the relaxed atmosphere of beach life in addition to the historical models. Whether it is a men’s watch or a women’s watch, the refined design of the Humberton series reveals a unique sense of fashion, which has become a symbol of long-lasting charm.
Inspired by a museum model from the 1940s, the rectangular case of the Humberton series combines architectural lines with the beauty of leisure life. The watch combines extraordinary temperamental art decoration with warm-toned materials such as 18K red gold, carbon black or silver; the sense of design and watchmaking technology complement each other, finally creating a sophisticated watch that blends real emotions and commemorates precious moments in life.
The existing Humberton men’s watch seems to be missing something. With this in mind, in 2012, Baume & Mercier introduced a new stainless steel bracelet style for this series of men’s watches, matching the metal bracelet of women’s watches. These two new automatic watches feature an ergonomically polished / satin-finished bracelet with a new triple-fold safety clasp, making them safer and easier to open.
The Humberton series ushered in a special moment of its own in the technology development phase: the biggest challenge to Humberton’s re-creation was finding the right tools to create geometric lines. Adhering to the motto of Baume & Mercier’s dedication to creating the highest quality watches, the technical team knows that the completion of the Humberton series is not easy. The technical team took months to finally put the elegance of the Humberton collection into practice.
