New Retro Chronograph Design from Baume & Mercier

Finding success with evocative watch design, Baume & Mercier is expanding its selection of Capeland chronographs, which are sure to appeal to anyone who has an eye for classic-era wristwatches. A new limited edition of 250 ($7,900) offers an eye-catching combination of a copper dial and blue hands. The bicompax counter layout and telemetric/tachymetric scales on the dial recall mid-century military watches. This model offers a fly-back chronograph movement by specialist La Joux-Perret and will be available exclusively at Tourneau. (800.637.2437, www.baume-et-mercier.com)
