This is the latest from Baume & Mercier - the Capeland World Timer!

Capeland Worldtimer, the Globetrotter’s Watch

Travel has been at the heart of the Baume & Mercier philosophy from the very first years of the Frères Baume timepiece trading post, founded 183 years ago by Louis-Victor and Célestin Baume. These visionary, businessmen looked to explore new markets outside Europe. This world-encompassing approach is undeniably part of the Baume & Mercier heritage, and has given rise to this latest creation, the Capeland Worldtimer.

The signature pebble-shaped watchcase offers a fully identifiable vintage design. The 44 mm model is available in 18K red gold or polished satin-brushed steel with a restrained but easy-to-read dial in ashen gray or off-white, with a subtle tone-on-tone refinement. This model’s self-winding mechanical movement can be seen through its sapphire case back.


To display the local time, just select the name of the city corresponding to the time zone where you are, and turn the 24- hour ring until the digit representing the current time is facing it. With the crown in the suitable position, simply adjust the hands. Once these quick adjustments are made and the crown is in place, it is easy to see what time it is all over the world.

Capeland Worldtimer 10107 - 18k Red Gold

The new 44 mm Capeland Worldtimer in 18K red gold, of an exceptional timelessness, will appeal to fine watch enthusiasts as it contains a self-winding mechanical movement renowned for its precision and endurance. The delicately manufactured movement, featuring premium fittings visible through the sapphire case back, displays the time simultaneously in the twenty-four time zones, and gives the date in an understated open counter at the three o’clock position. Practical and to-the- point, this fine timepiece is mounted on an elegant, understated brown alligator strap in the same tone as its 24-hour ring.

This satin-brushed steel watch with its subtly timeless shape is presented in the very contemporary 44 mm dial diameter. Its off- white dial makes it easy to read the local time, as well as the time in all twenty-four time zones of the world. This polished piece will delight craftsmanship connoisseurs, who will appreciate the superb mechanism of this self-winding caliber, visible through the sapphire case back; the quality of the blue alligator strap, in a shade matching the 24-hour ring of the watch; and the simplicity of the adjustment, making the world’s time zones visible at a glance.
