The fascinating Swiss watch company Czapek, a watch brand that achieved considerable success in the 19th century, has returned. Czapek & Cie was re-established by three entrepreneurs with a passion for fine watches and outstanding mechanics.
“Czapek deserves to be revived, he was one of the great watchmakers of the 19th century, who brilliantly combined precision mechanics with extremely refined aesthetics,” Xavier de Roquemaurel, spokesman for the team, says.
Czapek’s timepieces, which are still coveted at auctions, reveal a quest for beauty through a poetic display of time. The launch model is run on a manually wound proprietary movement with a seven-day power reserve featuring a mysterious double hand. Only 250 units will be produced in the first year.
