BAUME & MERCIER – CAPELAND CHRONOGRAPH FLYBACK PASSIONE ENGADINA
Introducing the Baume & Mercier Capeland Chronograph Flyback Passione Engadina
The fifth Passione Engadina race brings Italian vintage cars together to drive from Saint Moritz to the Engadin in the Swiss Alps. The event from August 19th to 21st paid tribute to Alfa Romeo and one of the sponsors, Baume & Mercier, has devoted a limited edition watch to it: the Capeland Chronograph Flyback Passione Engadina.
Not only is the vintage-style watch inspired by a 1948 Baume & Mercier mono-pusher chronograph but it also has a cool retro domed white matt dial. The Breguet Arabic numerals are tracked by blue steel “pomme” hands whilst the telemeter and tachymeter scales glow blue and red.
The 44mm steel case houses the self-winding La Joux-Perret 8147-2 calibre which powers the time, date (at 4.30 on the dial) and flyback chronograph functions.
Price: 7,100 CHF
