I started out my watch career at Tourneau in San Francisco. I remember a lot of reps coming in, some nicer than others. I must say that whoever the Baume & Mercier rep for our district back in 2003 was probably one of the nicest people I ever met, and he in turn inspired me to pursue a job in the industry.

So it was a bit like "bringing it all back home" when I got this press release this morning. Nice to see my former employers partnering on such a cool limited edition! Here are the details -
Global watch brand, Baume & Mercier, known for its strong heritage of offering classic watches for today's men and women, is raising the bar yet again. After the success of its first limited-edition watch at US Tourneau stores in 2012, the brand poises to introduce its first limited-edition Capeland Worldtimer, reference #10135, this October. This watch features a stunning blue dial and will have the unique capacity to convey 24 time zones.
