Online PR News – 02-November-2012 – Kuwait – Dubai, UAE: Baume & Mercier has launched two new limited editions of the famed men’s Capeland model, exclusively for Kuwait. The sport-chic Capeland series of men’s exclusive automatic flyback chronographs is designed for easy every day wear, and blends historical tradition with contemporary style and elegant appeal.

The ‘Al Hamra Tower’ timepiece was designed to mark the opening of the Al Hamra Tower and is limited to only 77 pieces, representative of the number of floors of the tower. The launch of the watch was announced to commemorate the opening of the new Baume & Mercier point of sale at the Behbehani Luxury Boutique in the Al Hamra Tower in Kuwait, and is the first specially crafted Capeland limited piece to be designed for the Middle East. The flyback chronograph has a diameter of 44mm and features a sun satin-finished slate gray and black domed dial and a light brown alligator strap with ecru stitching.

The other edition was created to celebrate 50 years of partnership between retailer Morad Yousuf Behbehani and Baume & Mercier. This 44mm flyback chronograph, limited to 50 pieces, offers a sun satin-finished and opaline copper-colored domed dial with blue tachymeter & black telemeter, and a blue alligator strap with copper-colored stitching.

Both limited editions offer a sapphire crystal case back which reveals the manufacture self-winding movement (La Joux-Perret 8147) featuring an open worked oscillating weight adorned with “Côtes de Genève” snailed décor and Phi symbol, the brand signature.

The two special Capeland models are set to arrive in Kuwait in November. The Al Hamra Tower edition is available at the Behbehani Luxury Boutique, Al Hamra Tower, and the other at all Morad Yousuf Behbehani retail points.
