Baume & Mercier Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Replica and Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Competition are housed in stainless steel cases. Each case measures 44mm in diameter and 15mm in thickness and features an AR-coated sapphire crystal, as well as a sapphire display back.
The crystal also protects the movement from minor ingress of water, and it is rated as water resistant to 50 meters (approximately 165 feet). From the rear, both models come with engravings “Shelby Cobra Edition”, “One out of 1963″ and the CSX2128′s N° 15 race number.
The main difference between these two novelties concerns the finishing of their cases. While the Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 leaves its case nude with satined and polished parts, the Capeland Shelby Cobra 1963 Competition features a black ADLC coating. This is a quite strong and resistant type of coating. As you can see on the image below, the manufacturer decided to leave the bezel non-coated, as well as the crown and chronograph pushers.-->
