I just got this beautiful watch around Valentine’s Day. (By the way ladies here is a great gift idea for your man for V-day.) I am so pleased with it, I wanted to share it with you. It is the Baume et Mercier Capeland Chronograph.
It has a nice heavy feel, beautiful dial with arabic numbers, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. It is water-resistant to 100 meters, with the help of a screw down crown. It is powered by a Valjoux 775o automatic movement with some nice embellishments, unfortunately it has a solid case back so you can’t view it.
I always loved the classic black dial on stainless. Bracelet or strap, I don’t care which, however, this piece deserves a nice panther link bracelet. I also really love the strongly luminous hands and indicators on the dial. It is gorgeous.
I wore it today with a black french-cuffed shirt (French cuffs are the best) and my black pearl cuff links. Plays nicely don’t you think? The crystal has a nice slight bubble top shape that is kind of reminiscent of a pearl so I thought it was appropriate.
To top it all off I have to share this with you as well, not only does Baume Mercier make beautiful watches, but their advertising agents are genius. Here is the best watch ad ever:
Check out Baume Mercier, these watches know….how to be swell.

Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
He continually kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this
information to him. Pretty sure he will have a great read.
Thanks for sharing!
Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Spending some time and actual
effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a
lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
I all the time used to study article in news papers but now as I
am a user of web so from now I am using net for articles or
reviews, thanks to web.

смысл развёрнут полностью, писатель выжал всё что можно, за что ему мой поклон!
