​Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 & Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Replica Watches Comparison

The first editions of the Replica Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra were of course classical and faithful to the car it pays tribute to. In the common psyche, the Shelby AC Cobra were blue with large white strippings. Thus, the swiss fake watches were showing the same colors, with blue dials, light blue stripes and silver sub-dials. For the SIHH 2016, Replica Baume & Mercier continues the partnership and introduces new editions, also based on the Cobra, but this time not on the entire lineup of cars but on one of the most successful Cobras in history: CSX2128, the 289 Roadster built to conquer the grueling 1963 12 Hours of Sebring race, competing as number 15.

Another difference can be seen on the straps: the normal edition of the Replica Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 is delivered on a black alligator leather strap with yellow edges and the Competition edition features a black rubber strap, with a yellow loop. inside these cases ticks an automatic movement, based on a Valjoux 7750.

There are two editions of the Replica Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra: the 1963, with a usual stainless case and the 1963 Competition, with a case partially coated with black ADLC and a rubber strap. The specific car it pays tribute to was black, with yellow stripes – two colors that we now find in the Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra. The dial has a black background, rather discreet horizontal stripes, some silvery-white sub-dials and several tips of yellow, for the chronograph hands.Both editions feature a case made in stainless steel and measuring 44mm. However, the main difference between the Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 and the Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Competition concerns the finishing of the case. While the first one leaves its case nude, the later (Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Competition) has a black ADLC coating (a very strong and resistant type of coating).
