Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Editions

As a follow up to the Capeland Shelby Cobra timepiece that was introduced last year, Baume & Mercier launched two new variations at SIHH this past January.

The new Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Editions are available in a choice of two different cases – each measuring 44 mm x 14.65 mm – crafted in either stainless steel with a steel bezel, or in ADLC treated stainless steel with a steel bezel. The latter is referred to as the “Competition.”
