Following our visit to Geneva Watch Days, the only main watch-related event organised this year in Europe, we had the chance to finally discover in the metal some of the newest timepieces introduced earlier this year, as well as all-new models from more than 15 brands. Besides the large, established brands (such as Bvlgari, Ulysse Nardin or Girard-Perregaux), multiple creative and high-end independent manufactures were also present, including Czapek, one of the most active brands in this segment of the market, with its original horizontal integration and crowdfunding equity business model. Today, we take the time to talk to Xavier de Roquemaurel, CEO of the brand, to discover the new models of this year.
Since its (re)inception in 2015, Czapek, who was once the partner of Patek, has demonstrated its capability of creating very interesting watches and calibres. After the inaugural “Quai des Bergues” collection of elegant watches inspired by antique pocket watches, it was time for the brand to show more and to enlarge the collection. This has been done with a high-end tourbillon watch, a powerful chronograph and, recently, the brand’s first luxury sports watch. All three have been presented in new editions this year, as explained by Roquemaurel in the video. From new editions of the Czapek Antarctique to the Faubourg de Cracovie California Dreamin’ and the Place Vendôme Tourbillon Dark Matter, you’ll be able to discover the brand’s latest watches in the video at the top of this article.
