Baume et Mercier Capeland S Review

Baume et Mercier Capeland Watch Review

  The Capeland S Automatic #8124 is a nice sporty/dress watch. The high polished bezel, with brushed 1-15 minute counter is gorgeous. This Capeland has a great combination of high polish and brushed finishes throughout the watch. The black face is deep black in color with a grey subdial seconds. In the Capeland series, Baume et Mercier uses sword hour and minute hands, a personal favorite for Watches And Reviews. 
  There is a date window at the 3 o’clock position, visible through the sapphire crystal. The bracelet has brushed center links, accented nicely with polished links. The screw down case back and crown help ensure the water resistance of 200m. The Capeland 8124 is powered by an automatic ETA 2895 movement, with an estimated 42 hour power reserve. 

Pros - Very versatile, sporty/dressy, reliable brand

Consideration - The beautiful crisp edges of the bezel could be a be magnate for marks/dings
