Previously, Baume & Mercier released Capeland Chronogphrahs which were rather similar in appearance and function as the pieces in the previous collection with the subtle nautical themes and features as well as the easygoing nature of the watches.

There are many other notable features of the newer Capeland Chronographs such as the round, stainless steel bezel and round case which are polished and measure 42 millimeters by 15.1 millimeters, lugs with a satin finish, chronograph, telemeter in red, date and grey-silver tachymeter marker functions and anti –glare, scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The Capeland Chronograph also comes equipped with many attractive features such as luminous, uniquely leaf-shaped hands, gorgeous sun satin-finished brown and copper-colored dial, white Arabic numerals and markers, brown calfskin leather strap with an adjustable, folding buckle and a screwed down crown.

In addition to the features listed above, you can also expect to see a large central seconds hand counter, 30-minute subdial at 3 o’clock, 12 hour counter at 6 o’clock, a smaller running seconds clock at 9 o’clock, and at 4 o’clock a date window which all beautifully complement the bold brown dial.

Baume & Mercier Hampton Small Seconds Watch in Rose Gold

Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Baume & Mercier have a very long history of creating luxurious timekeepers and have blazed the trail for combining striking designs and innovative technologies. Baume & Mercier has always abided by their values of remaining loyal to their heritage, being confident of their knowledge and being a symbol of affordable indulgence. Baume & Mercier prides themselves on helping to create special moments in the lives of individuals who wear their classic timepieces.

One of their recent releases is the Hampton Small Seconds Watch in Rose Gold which is a gorgeous unisex timepiece with a sleek rectangular case featuring elegant vintage touches and modern glamour. Avid watch collectors might look at the Baume & Mercier Hampton Small Seconds Watch and it will spark up sentiments of the Jaeger Lacoultre design. Both timepiece share the rectangular case attached to an alligator strap.

The Baume & Mercier Hampton 10033 has a particularly slim body measuring 45.5 millimeters by 30 millimeters and 10.65 millimeters in width, a screw-down crown emblazoned with Greek lettering on the tip which represents balance and perfection. This particular watch from the Hampton collection is said to be quite distinctive from the remainder of the watches in the collection with its hand wound movement, a slender La Joux-Perret ebauche caliber 736-3, 21 jewels that pulses at 21,600 vibrations per hour.

The Hampton 10033 also features a sapphire glass casing, case back made of sapphire crystal which lends itself to displaying the blued screws and Cotes de Geneve stripes that curve transversely at an angle. Perhaps the most striking feature of this watch is the rose gold dial and hands that offer a look of fluidity and glamour. The rose gold dial contrasts nicely with the black markers, Roman Numerals, gold raised buttons and impression of the Baume & Mercier brand name. An almost inconspicuous characteristic of the dial is the petite seconds counter located at 6 o’clock but offers no contrast to the rest of the dial being the same color. The distinctive rose gold case is attached to an attractive brown alligator strap with a pin buckle. Baume & Mercier does not offer variations of this timepiece at the moment.

Holding a power reserve of 42 hours and is water resistant to 165 feet, the Hampton 10033 can easily be worn for both work and play with ease. One could easily transition this watch from the office to dinner to a weekend out on the town.

Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic 10073 Watch

Want the best of both worlds? You’ll know just from watching the Olympics that the best things in life are often a mix between grace and strength, between innovation and standards. This goes double for watches. Fortunately, there’s the Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic 10073 Watch for those who know that mixing and matching is the best combo.

Part of the Linea line, the Baume & Mercier Automatic is a slightly different take on one of their best designs. The most eye-catching element of the watch is the masterful combination of 18 k red gold and stainless steel on the wristband and bezel.
The Baume & Mercier have been a favorite with ladies since the early 1950s, but their classic design still hasn’t gone out of style.
Over sixty years later, this watch remains a timeless classic. The blend of strong and subtle elements creates a light symmetry that deceptively difficult to achieve. The practicality of the stainless steel band juxtaposed against the soft gold blends together seamlessly in this piece.
A more modern element of the piece includes the open back of the watch, allowing you to look in on the movement of the watch behind a sapphire crystal window.
With a bright, open face and clearly marked gold indices, the watch is readable, wearable, and lovable. The fixed steel bezel has numbers etched into it, adding a subtle element that makes the watch just that much easier to read.

The satin finish on the watch blends all of the elements together by adding a soft glow to the piece. It can sometimes be difficult to mesh silver and gold tastefully, but the stain sheen binds the elements together to create an irresistible timepiece.
Water resistant up to 50 m/165 ft with minutes, hours, seconds, and date function, this watch is practically perfect in every way. The automatic movement, anti-reflective sapphire crystal dial window and triple-folding clasp adds extra security to a quality watch.
Choose from the ETA 2892-A2 or Sellita SW300 movements to keep your watch ticking. Both versions boast 21 jewels and 42 hours of power reserve. Either way, this watch will keep time with everything you do—and then some.
Easy on the eyes and in every other aspect, the Baume & Mercier Two-Tone Linea Automatic 10073 Watch combines all the elements of classic ladies watches and takes it two steps further.
